Through the Looking-Glass

Through the Looking-Glass

adapted by Lindsay Price from Lewis Carroll

Alice is back in Wonderland and things are more confusing than ever – Flowers talk, the White Queen cries before she pricks her finger, and there’s a life-sized chess game going on. Alice wants to play, but mostly wants to be queen. Will she make it to the eighth square?

A fantastical physical journey for both actor and audience.

A great companion to Alice by the same author.

We had so much fun with this play! The Wonderland parts were a perfect intro to choral speaking and chorus.
Beth Goodwin
Central High School Drama Club
We had a lot of fun creating the Wonderland characters, figuring movement & scene changes, and developing all the other characters/scenes. This was an amazing play to perform, it gave my students such an opportunity to flex their creative muscles.
