Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Saturday, October 1 through Sunday, October 2
Pioneer Springs Community School
Presented by Activate Community Through Theatre

 Audiences get into the ACT of participating in Activate Community Through Theatre’s, ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’, an Immersive Experience. ACT’s production set on the nature-based campus of the Pioneer Springs Community School in Charlotte (Huntersville border) invites audiences to sing with the Caterpillar, dance with the flowers or Gryphon, play croquet with the Queen of Hearts and enjoy snacks at the Mad Hatters Tea party. Artistic Director, Dr. Wrenn Goodrum, has decades of experience directing audience participation plays. ‘At my former company, All Children’s Theatre, in Providence, Rhode Island, I hired playwrights to write original plays that included audience participation. I wanted to break that wall between the audience and the actors and include the audience in the fun. What a joy it was to watch children join the young actors on stage as pirates, reindeer, princesses and more. It gave the participants a sense of empowerment and fun. (Side note, many of the audience participants later joined our acting company). As our participatory productions grew, so did the age of the participants when we produced murder mystery dinner theatres with teens. It was so entertaining to watch children and adults in the audience get up on their feet singing and moving to the ‘reindeer stomp’ or interacting with the police detectives, and so it continues to be. Especially after the pandemic, I believe that families need to laugh, play, and have fun!!! What better way than participating with Alice and characters from Wonderland as they venture into the forest or the gardens.

‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’, an Immersive Experience opens September 24th on the campus of the Pioneer Springs Community School in Charlotte (bordering Huntersville). The production offers two adventures for the audiences to choose from: ‘The Forest Adventure’ includes scenes with the Cheshire Cats, Caterpillar, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the Gryphon and Mock Turtle and ‘The Garden Adventure’ which includes scenes with the Duchess and Cook, Lady Humpty Dumpty, the Gardeners, and the Flowers. Both adventures include playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, having a snack at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, and attending the Trial. The cast of 35 youth aged 8-17 includes four Alices, five Cheshire Cats and ten locations. The production is filled with audience participation and lots of surprises. Tickets are $21.50 which include snacks at the Mad Hatters Tea Party and NC State Sales Tax. To purchase tickets https://activatecommunitythroughtheatre.seatyourself.biz
