Center for the Arts - 110 W. College Street, Murfreesboro
The Center for the Arts Presents: ALICE – A WONDER FULL NEW MUSICAL, running January 13 - 29, 2017. ALICE is a modern retelling of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Alice is a typical high school senior, who is supposed to write an essay on what her future holds, but the only thing that matters is the concert she is going to that night. If she could only meet the singer in her favorite band, Red Queen, maybe her life would make sense - but soon nothing makes sense as she takes a trip to Wonderland instead, meeting a crazy array of personalities that vie for her attention. This musical adventure may just give Alice the clarity she needs to see who she really is.
Full of rock-pop music and familiar Wonderland characters that have been tweaked for a modern audience, ALICE is a must-see family experience. The Mad Hatter is here, but this tea party is set in a TV studio, and the Duchess character has been transformed into a parenting guru who has some opinions to share with Alice. What will happen when Alice finally does meet her idol, Red Queen? It’s a subtle commentary on the myriad influences kids have in their lives today from media and arts to peer and family pressures.
