Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland

Eastern Connecticut State University’s Theatre program is pleased to present Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland,adapted for the stage by Deborah Lynn Frockt and directed by Lenore Grunko, which will run February 18 – 22, 2015(Wednesday at 1pm; Thursday and Friday at 11am; Saturday and Sunday at 4pm)in the Harry Hope Theatre(Shafer Hall ground floor; corner of High and Valley Streets, Willimantic).


As per the director, Lenore Grunko, this is “family fun for school age children through adults!Alice’s Adventures in Wonderlandis a convergence of dreams, adventure, and challenge. Who is Alice? A girl, like most, who desires adventure rather than boredom, but unexpectedly finds herself in the throes of increasingly difficult challenges that become resolved as her dreams lead her through a web of highly engaging interactions. Some, if not all of these interactions are frustrating if not, confrontational. She engineers her way through each with a little more confidence and assuredness until the end, when it becomes apparent that she might just be in real danger. Alice is not willing to accept defeat, even by a Queen!

Tickets for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland  are free for Eastern students;  $5 for other students and groups of ten or more; $10 Eastern faculty, staff, alumni, and senior citizens; $15 for the general public.
