Join a cast of Clatsop County youth as they bring “Alice in Wonderland (and Back Again)” to the stage in a theatrical retelling of Lewis Carroll’s timeless classics.
Presented by Sunset Empire Park & Recreation District and Jeremy Mills State Farm, the Clatsop Children’s Theatre Co. will perform the show, written by Randy Wyatt, at 7 p.m. today through Sunday, Aug. 18-20, at the Seaside Civic and Convention Center. Doors open at 6:30.
Two dozen children, ranging from 5 to 13 years old, will take on numerous shapes and forms throughout the two-act show, transforming into flowers, queens, playing cards, birds, cats and more. Not only does the show feature many well-known characters — such as Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Tweedles, the Queen of Hearts and the Cheshire Cat — but the audience also will encounter several lesser-known characters, such as Humpty Dumpty, the Duchess and her Nanny, and the White Knight.
“Alice in Wonderland (and Back Again)” is produced by special arrangement with YouthPLAYS and is made possible through a Clatsop County Cultural Coalition grant, funded by the Oregon Cultural Trust.
All performances are free and open to the public. The group is accepting donations to support arts in the local schools.
