Welcome to a magical world of fun and fantasy with The White Rabbit & Alice, opening 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 26 at the Linkville Playhouse, 201 Main Street. A special gala will precede the show at 6:30 p.m. in the theater lobby.
The White Rabbit & Alice will run for nine performances from March 16 through April 7 with 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday curtains. There will be a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee on March 25.
This family-friendly show is a special musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s two classic fantasy novels, Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass And What Alice Found There. The production has been written, designed and directed by Barbara M. DiIaconi and has an original musical score by Slippery Bill Eaton.
The White Rabbit & Alice features Henley High School senior Alayna Moffat in the title role as Alice with multi-talented Dan Crenshaw as the White Rabbit. The villainous Queen of Hearts/Red Queen is played by Geneva Lewis. Other royalty includes Kay Heath as the Duchess, Gabe Rudd as the White Queen, David Velador as the Red King, and Brandon Sha as the Knave of Hearts/White King.
Other characters include Mat Landsiedel as the Caterpillar and a playing card; Robert Gardner as the Mad Hatter, Heather Sha as the March Hare, and Aria Sha as the Dormouse at the Mad Tea Party; Jesse Sundet as Tweedledee with Patrick Staffler as Tweedledum; Mark McCrary as the White Knight and Mock Turtle; Margie Stuart as the Gryphon; and Emilie Westover as the Cheshire Cat.
Rounding out the cast are Kitty Jackson as the Cook, Angelo Dearborn as the Red Knight, Brenden Ketchum as the Footman, Marcail Muno as a Mouse, and Charles Contla and Crystal Muno as playing cards.
This new musical adaptation by DiIaconi and Eaton involves a considerable amount of creativity in sets, outfits, and action with fantastical costumes designed and constructed by Wendy Dyk. This artistic team last worked together on the Linkville’s 2014 production of If The Shoe Fits, an original musical adaptation of the Cinderella story.
Director DiIaconi hopes children of all ages will enjoy this fanciful getaway. “Everyone at some time or another needs to step out of reality into the brilliant colors of fantasy and magic. This will be just such an experience for those who see this production.”
