Join Alice's madcap adventures in Wonderland as she chases the White Rabbit, races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with the Tweedles, raps with bubble-blowing Caterpillar and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game! This fast-paced stage adaptation of Alice in Wonderland features updated dialogue and new arrangements of such classic Disney songs as "I'm Late," "The Un-birthday Song" and "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah!" The Asheville Arts Center's summer show, Alice in Wonderland, Jr. promises to be an absolute delight.

Director's Note: I can't think of a better way to finish my time at the Asheville Arts Center than putting this production together! In a way it has been like my own trip to Wonderland as I have had the opportunity to work with a great artistic team with Kurt and Heidi and a great set of teenage assistants (Annie, Daniel, and Mary Katherine) to help complete this incredible undertaking. Now add 44 of the most talented and enjoyable students that I have ever had the pleasure to gather in one cast and you've got the perfect recipe for a fabulous experience. These students gave up two full weeks of summer vacation coming in M-F 9-3 in order to create this spectacular show. Sit back and let us take you to Wonderland…
