Quotes & Highlights

“Ms. Swados’ new dramatized cantata…made me think of Carroll very deeply…[She] magnificently catches most of Carroll’s divine nuttiness.”— The New York Post

Description

_Alice _

A musical rendition of Lewis Carroll’s classic storybook characters

Music and Lyrics by Elizabeth Swados

Directed by Vanda Eggington

Lewis Carroll’s children’s stories,_ Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland_ and Through the Looking Glass, have delighted readers and inspired imaginations since they were written almost 150 years ago. This musical adaptation is no different as it presents catchy original songs through such beloved characters as Alice, The White Rabbit, The Cheshire Cat, The Mad Hatter and more.

Suitable for all ages.
