Children’s Theatre Production “ Alice in Concert” Takes a Musical Trip to Wonderland  

This April, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte will take a tuneful trip to Wonderland with Alice in Concert” (Apr. 17 - May 3). This charming, imaginative musical retells the adventures of Lewis Carroll’s child heroine from the classics “ Alice ’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass.”  

In Alice in Concert”, Tony-nominated playwright and composer Elizabeth Swados follows Alice down the rabbit hole and into the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland. There Alice encounters some of the most memorable creations in children’s literature, including the perpetually-in-a-hurry White Rabbit, the tea-loving Mad Hatter and the mysterious Cheshire Cat. With catchy songs ranging from country-western to calypso and witty lyrics, these quirky creatures teach Alice and the audience numerous lessons in the oddest of ways.  

Lewis Carroll’s beloved characters are brought to life by a talented ensemble of professional actors, including Ashley Bradley as Alice in her Children’s Theatre debut. Artistic Director Alan Poindexter directs the ten-person cast, which also includes Caroline Bower, Nicia Carla, Jon Parker Douglas, Steven Ivey, Robbie Jaeger, Ericka Ross, Mark Sutton, Amy Van Looy and Barbi Van Schaick.
