Immaculata University Stages Production of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland
The Children´s Theatre of Immaculata University celebrates its 36th season with a production of Alice in Wonderland. Performances begin Thursday, March 23 and Friday, March 24, at 10:30 a.m. and Saturday, March 25, at 2:00 p.m. and take place in Alumnae Hall Theater on the University´s campus.
Charlotte Chorpenning adapted Lewis Carroll´s famous story Alice in Wonderland for children. Chasing the White Rabbit, Alice tumbles down the rabbit hole into Wonderland where she meets: the King of Hearts, Red Queen, White Queen, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Gryphon, the Mock Turtles, the Dormouse, Mad Hatter and March Hare, the Frog Footmen, the Duchess, the Caterpillars, and White Rabbit.
The University´s involvement with theater for children began as an interim course in the winter of 1971. Since that initial production, Immaculata students have entertained thousands of local children with a total of 37 plays. The offerings have ranged from traditional fairy tales to original plays written by members of the Cue and Curtain Players. Always, the plays that spark laughter are the most popular; frequently, these are the well-known stories.
Tickets are $5.00 and $3.00 for groups of 10 or more. All seats are reserved and Alumnae Hall is accessible to people with handicaps. For information and reservations, contact 610-647-4400, ext. 3731 or 3022.
Immaculata University, a Catholic, coeducational institution, is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
