This classic stage adaption by Eva Le Gallienne and Florida Friebus depicts the fast-paced adventure of 7-year-old Alice from Lewis Carroll’s beloved children’s book. It follows Alice as she goes through the looking glass and meets the strange and eccentric inhabitants of Wonderland. Along with plenty of Baltimore-themed surprises, there will be seating on stage for any brave volunteers who might want to get closer to the action and the mad tea party. Families with children are also encouraged to visit the lobby station throughout the performance for Wonderland-themed coloring pages, stickers, and photo opportunities.

Tickets are available for all four performances:

  • Friday, March 24, 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 25, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
