Santa Monica Playhouse has welcomed the return of the original Chris DeCarlo and Evelyn Rudie musical comedy “Alice and the Wonderful Tea Party” as its 2013 holiday family theatre musical offering weekends through Dec. 15.
The production, back for the holidays by audience demand, follows a grown-up Alice who goes back through the looking glass to visit the wonderful Wonderland characters of her youth.
Lovely audience participation helps Alice set things alright in this zany musical comedy for kids ages 2 to 102.
Join Alice as she takes a pun-derful return trip to the fantasy land of her childhood to visit her old friends the Queen of Hearts, Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee, the White Queen and a host of zany characters intent on musical madness and merriment.
Will she prevail or are the Cards stacked against her? Will the Queen suffer a heart attack? Will the surprise tea party come off with civili-TEA or hostili-TEA?
Performances are Saturdays at 2 pm and Sundays at 12:30 pm through Dec. 15.
Admission is $10.50 for kids 12 and under, and $12.50 for adults.
Festive birthday and tea parties are hosted by a costumed fairy tale character are offered with every performance.
The production is also available for Girl Scout and school field trips to the Playhouse, complete with behind-the-scenes tour and post-show discussion with the cast.
