What first was a mission to find Alice's cat, Dinah, becomes a plan to help her new friends, Dracula, Bo Peep, Cinderella (and some other unusual characters), to find what they have lost and figure out who the thief is and to get their treasures back! Come fall down the rabbit hole with us on this wild goose chase into Wonderland!

Perfect for all ages, but we encourage you to bring your littlest theatre goer! They will love it!

More to know: This show is a touring outreach show. The set and costumes are minimal so that we can pack it up and tour it around to different organizations of need in our community. Thank you for supporting this program and the youth we serve!
