Audition Prep

Synopsis

Follow That Rabbit into a delightful, entertaining world of childhood fantasies! Alice journeys to a world of talking animals, comic royalty, and races where the contestants run in circles! There is also the Mad Hatter’s frantic tea party, the watch-carrying White Rabbit, and talking flowers. Along the way, Alice must deal with a sneezing Duchess and a baby that turns into a pig. The finale has Alice watching a trial, but she suddenly finds herself the accused! The play gives a modern view to an old classic, where nonsense makes quite good sense.
