Description

Charlie and Alice, a sophisticated children’s play, described as an improbable frolic into the realm of Fantasy. Loosely based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, the play features Alice, along with such familiar characters as the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts. However, there are a few interesting twists – the Cheshire Cat, Charlie, is a very cool cat representing the forces of good and locked in battle with the evil Ace of Spades. Many echoes of the Keystone cops and slapstick abound in this hilarious production. Added to this is an incredible collection of music, dance, magic, technical work, and special effects designed to make Charlie and Alice a sophisticated children’s play.
