Alice’s Wonderland, a regional premiere co-written and directed by J. Quinton Johnson (Broadway’s Hamilton), is about a brilliant, passionate teen-coder who dreams of changing the world with her new video game, Wonderland. When Rabbit suddenly emerges from the screen and offers her an escape from reality, Alice takes the leap – and lands in her own virtual world, only it’s no longer her intended utopian creation, where anyone can be a hero. To win the game, she must level up until she can confront the ruthless, sickly sweet Queen of Hearts and save Wonderland from the clutches of oppression. Adapted from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll this new musical explores ambition, rebellion, greed, and the power of self-expression. Featuring an original score inspired by hip-hop, pop, gospel, and contemporary musical theater, Alice’s Wonderland is a new musical for all ages.
