Alice and the Book of Wonderland

July 29, 2017

Following the critically-acclaimed Richard III, the Annapolis Shakespeare Company (ASC) returns with Alice and the Book of Wonderland, a World Premiere adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.A compelling new version of a beloved classic, Alice and the Book of Wonderland is a bright and witty adaptation by Sally Boyett, Donald Hicken, and Tony Tsendeas with original music by James Fitzpatrick. ASC’s retelling reveals a fast-paced tale designed to delight young and old in an exciting new version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in which an inquisitive young woman named Alice is drawn into a fantastical world where logic is illogical and the absurd makes sense. Through a series of dramatic vignettes creatively linked together by ASC’s new adaptation, Alice makes her way through the fantastical terrain of Wonderland: a place where her experiences become curiouser and curiouser. ASC’s Alice and the Book of Wonderland will be set in the Victorian world of Oxford and employs a dynamic union of contemporary technology and theatrical magic.
