Penobscot Theatre Company’s Dramatic Academy will guide audiences down the rabbit hole in an unforgettable adventure with its upcoming production of ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Performances are May 16-17, at 6:00 pm, and May 18 at 3:00 pm at the Bangor Opera House. The script, which incorporates all of the Alice stories from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, led to the most successful dramatic version of this classic tale on Broadway. Under the direction of Jasmine Ireland, PTC’s director of education and outreach, the highly innovative ensemble dance theatre piece is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
“Carroll’s richly crafted fantasy begs enactment and comes to life vividly through the magic of theatre,” said Ireland. “Our young performers have unleashed their imaginations to inhabit Alice’s fantasy world, and it’s been a joy to foster the innate creativity of our emerging talent. I am enormously proud of this production!”
The following young people, aged 4-13, will play more than 50 colorful roles:
- Tiny Thespians: Sophie Baker, Walker Bayless, Colin Buck, Stella Burns, Charlotte Hautala, Maia Johnson, Sophia Merchan, Chloe Sarnacki, Eden Walton
- Youth Troupe: Kobe Angel, Ferris Bard, Quinn Bard, Tala Bayless, Elisabeth Budd, Ian Buck, Harry Burns, Caroline Cowing, Emma Cowing, Violet Damon, Lillian Higgins, Ethan DeMerchant, Gracie Farrar, Marion Glinski, Molly Hagerty, Lilly Anne Keeley, Anna Kemble, Skylar Lane, Terra Malkow, Paige Malkow, Zachariah McCarthy, Avery McCoy, Ellie McDonald-Darby, Sophia Mullins, Rachel Palmer, Charlie Piccone, Byron Sockalexis, Raven Sockalexis, Kjell Vikberg
