Youth All-Star "A Mad Tea Party!"
Friday, August 17
Lewis Carroll's work Alice in Wonderland has delighted readers for generations. Alice, a young girl, with an active imagination, follows a unique White Rabbit down his hole one warm summer day and experiences fascinating adventures with creatures from Wonderland. In the midst of the story, Alice approaches a large table under a tree outside March Hare's house set for tea. The ensuing 'party' with the magical creatures is full of comical wordplay, characterization and drama. Conversations during the "Mad Tea-Party" paint a picture reflecting a child's perception of an actual English teatime. Join Alice and her amazing friends as she uncovers valuable truths about curiosity and identity.
Young Adult Production "The Wizard of Oz"
August 17 - 19
Dorothy Gale is a young girl living on a Kansas Farm with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry. She dreams of escaping her mundane life ("Over The Rainbow") which occurs via a cyclone transporting her to the magical land of Oz. As she journeys along the "Yellow Brick Road", Dorothy discovers friendship with three unlikely characters (Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion) seeking to obtain the things they desire most in life -- brains, courage, and heart. In the end, Glinda, the Good Witch appears and explains that Dorothy has always had the power to return home. All she has to do is close her eyes, tap her heels together three times and repeat to herself, "There's no place like home."
