SHOW SUMMARY: This adaptation, by director Jim Banar, of Lewis Carroll’s classic coming of age tale follows Alice, exactly six and one-half months after the events of Alice in Wonderland, as she dreamily wonders one snowy day what it would be like to live in the fantastical world on the other side of her looking glass. Playing her favorite game of “Let’s pretend…,” Alice steps “through the looking-glass” and finds herself in a strange world filled with contradictory rules, extraordinary encounters, and eccentric and whimsical creatures, all played out in a countryside marked out like a giant chess board. Realizing what fun it might be to join this world game of chess, Alice is granted her request to enter the game as White Queen’s Pawn who wishes to become Queen. Her madcap journey of self-discovery and adventure is filled with remarkable adventures and some of the most iconic characters in all of children’s literature – the strict Red Queen; the compassionate White Knight; the absent-minded White Queen; talking flowers with attitude; the poetic Humpty Dumpty; the “contrariwise” Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee; a fighting Lion and Unicorn; king's horses; king's men and so many more – all of whom test Alice’s vision of herself and of her world.
