About Alice@Wonderland - The Musical. The technology of the 21st century collides with the madness of Wonderland in this rockin' new musical adaptation that remains fairly faithful to Lewis Carroll's original tale. The Twist? Alice is a texting, tweeting and Googling girl of the modern digital era, yet she finds herself in the Wonderland of old. With all the old characters you know and love including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts, this musical imagines a present-day Alice encountering the Wonderland so many of us treasure. Meanwhile, the younger generation will appreciate and relate to the many references to texting and social networking. And the contemporary sounding new score by beloved composer Bill Francoeur and lyrics by Scott DeTurk will delight all. A sharply told, crisply paced ride, this quality adaptation has been praised for its humour, artistic modern style and appeal to both children and adults.
