Alice in Wonderland, 10 a.m. & 6:30 p.m., PAC’s main performance hall.
The classic fairy tale “Alice in Wonderland” will come to life Wednesday, Oct. 16, on stage at the Lee College Performing Arts Center (PAC). The show will take audiences down the rabbit hole and into a fantasy land filled with strange and colorful characters.
“Alice” will be performed at 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. A limited number of tickets are still available for the evening performance and for the Mad Hatter Tea Party, to be held from 4-5 p.m. Children aged 2-12 years are invited to attend the party, where they can meet and have their photo taken with their favorite characters from the play. Refreshments will be served and parents are welcome.
Presented by Canadian theater company Tout À Trac, the production of “Alice” at the PAC is written and directed by Hugo Bélanger according to the original work of author Lewis Carroll. The show begins with Alice hiding in her father’s library, preferring to play and daydream instead of doing her lessons. A curious white rabbit suddenly appears and hastily leaves, afraid he will be late for an appointment with the queen. In his rush, the rabbit forgets his gloves — the very item he must be bring to the queen, who will cut off his head if he appears without them. Wanting to save his life, Alice follows the rabbit and begins a magical adventure, where she meets fascinating characters like the Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter and even Humpty Dumpty.
“Alice” is one of several family-oriented productions that will grace the stage of the PAC this year. Tickets are going fast for the beloved holiday story of the “Nutcracker,” to be performed with the Baytown Symphony Orchestra from Dec. 20-22, and the Tea with the Sugar Plum Fairy to be held Dec. 21.
