Northwest to present ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Feb. 26-27

Northwest Missouri State University’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts will present “Alice in Wonderland” Feb. 26-27.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. in the Studio Theater at the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are $5 and available at the door. Seating is limited.

The production is directed by Jake Thomsen, who said he was drawn last year to the script created and performed by the Manhattan Project in 1970 under the direction of Andre Gregory.

“I went in knowing that this script was not like a regular play,” Thomsen said, noting the original cast created and produced the unique show as an ensemble. “I was intrigued by the idea, and I knew that I wanted to create a close ensemble feel for my cast as well.”

The production is a fresh take on the traditional story by Lewis Carroll. Six actors play all of the iconic characters as well as some unfamiliar ones.

“The actors are constantly busy during the short 75 minutes,” Thomsen said. “It is challenging to go through rehearsal without a break, but they have worked incredibly hard to make it look easy.”

The production is recommended for ages 13 and up.
