This summer, take a trip down the rabbit hole with Alice as she encounters fantastical beings that are just too impossible to believe!
The 2021 Summer Celebration community theatre production is an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass packed with adventure of the zaniest kind. The play, Lewis Carroll: Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast, written by Marilyn Ann Hetzel and Margaret Lee Potts, comes to the Sioux Center stage June 3-6.
“This is a great show for kids and adults – it’s a show everyone knows but it’s done in a very different way,” said Sioux Center Arts Director, Kaitlyn Baljeu, who is directing the play. “The play takes you on a journey where you don’t know where you’re going next or who you’re going to meet.”
Lewis Carroll: Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast has the entire cast creating Wonderland right around Alice as she meets a grinning Cheshire cat, the storytelling Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and a Red Queen that wants everyone’s heads cut off. The cast of 11 features all-local talent, both youth and adults.
“I love how the actors play so many different characters – we’ve had a lot of fun practicing taking on different personas,” Baljeu said. “I can’t wait for everyone to see this show!”
Performances are at Te Paske Theater in the Sioux Center High School:
The production runs about 90 minutes with an intermission.
Tickets are available online ($10 for adults, $3 for children 12 and under) and at the door ($12 for adults, $4 for children 12 and under).
It’s not too late to get involved in the production. Baljeu is seeking people to help as ushers and the box office for the performances. Anyone interested can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
