‘Alice in Wonderland’ next production by Mesa State students

The March Hare (Scot Cahoon) attempts to pour tea for the Dormouse (Sage Buchalter), left, the Mad Hatter (Alex Tait), second from right, and Alice (Jennifer Walder) in a scene from Mesa State College’s upcoming performance of “Alice in Wonderland.”

The Mesa State College theater department is bringing one of the most iconic childhood tales to the Robinson Theatre stage in a family-friendly show.

A production of “Alice in Wonderland” begins 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, and runs nightly through Saturday, Nov. 20.

Special matinees are 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 20–21.

With different versions of “Alice in Wonderland” floating around, Mesa State director Jeanine A. Howe selected a rarely seen script for its entertainment and playfulness, she said.

This version previously only has been performed at the Marin Shakespeare Festival in California.

The show is rated G and includes all the famous characters, such as the White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts.

Those unfamiliar with “Alice in Wonderland” should know the plot revolves around a little girl named Alice and her adventures after she falls down a rabbit hole into a strange world with odd characters. The story focuses on the magic of youthfulness.

“Discover all over what it is to be young,” Howe said.

Tickets to “Alice in Wonderland” are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $6 for students. Tickets are available at the Mesa State box office inside the Moss Performing Arts Center or by calling 248-1604.
