‘Alice in Wonderland’ at Media Theatre now through Aug. 20

This summer, Alice will chase a rabbit, fall down a hole, and get smaller and larger while meeting all types of crazy characters. Will you follow her? It’s time for a new musical version of “Alice In Wonderland” at The Media Theatre, based on Lewis Carroll’s classic.

It’s on Saturdays at 11am and Sundays at noon through Aug. 20. Ben Kapilow (Broadway World Award winner) wrote the brand new score to Tim Haney’s revised script. Kapilow music directs, and Carol Sorensen’s bright costumes liven the hour long show for ages 4 and up.

There’s audience participation at the Croquet game, and plenty of humor as three parents of Media Theatre students join in the fun, playing roles in the show alongside their children. Eileen Wiley makes her Media Theatre debut as the Queen of Hearts with her daughter, Violet, playing Alice. Doug Henry and his daughter play Tweedledum and Tweedledee, sharing the role with Henry O’ Neill and his son Sean.

Tim Haney plays the Caterpillar and the King, Roger Ricker is The Mad Hatter and a funky singing table, and no two performances will be the same as most youth roles are double cast.

Media Theatre’s New School students and Acting Class participants portray everything from the White Rabbit to Hedgehogs and more in this lively, upbeat adventure.

Tickets are just $12 for children and $15 for adults. Call 610-891-0100 or visit mediatheatre.org
