It’s the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston’s Colonial Theatre is host to the opening night performance of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage the entire cast & crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan!

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 a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game! Roles are plentiful, including three Cheshire Cats and dozens of other wonderfully wacky characters. This fast-paced stage adaptation of Alice in Wonderland features updated dialogue and new arrangements of classic Disney songs as “I’m Late,” “The Un-birthday Song” and “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah”.

About Spring Shows at West Chester Studio 

Our Spring Shows provide young performers a live theatrical experience.  During our eight week process, creativity is encouraged as students test out classroom skills in a show.  Under the direction of industry professionals, your child will shine on stage!  In addition to honing performance skills, our students witness the process of costuming, directing and everything in-between.  When the lights come up opening night, students feel the rush of excitement, exude confidence and feel a sense of accomplishment.
