Follow us down the Rabbit Hole to Wonderland, as we accompany Alice through the bizarre dream world where she encounters the exaggerated absurdity of nonsensical rules of adult behavior  as seen through the eyes of a child. Combining live actors, puppetry, projection, music, sound and lighting, the classic tale comes to life with all the humorous favorite characters: the White Rabbit and the Mouse, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, The Caterpillar and the Queen of Hearts, and of course, the Cheshire Cat! This unique adaptation was conceived, designed and directed by University Theatre’s scenic designer and UNC School of the Arts graduate Jayme Mellema. A family treat!


“It is a universal story and so belongs to all time. It has never gone out of fashion and never will as long as children love wonder-stories and grown-ups have young hearts. Florence Milner in The Poems in Alice in Wonderland
