CHILDREN’S PRODUCTION SETS ALICE IN WONDERLAND TO DANCE
LA CROSSE, Wis.— The New York Theatre Ballet transforms the delightful world of Alice in Wonderland into a high-flying vaudevillian ballet on Sunday, Feb. 16 at 3 p.m. in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
A potpourri of music and dance, the Alice in Wonderland Follies has rich scenery and colorful costumes that highlight an exciting mixture of classical ballet, acrobatics, slapstick, ballroom, and burlesque movements. A wide range of musical choices, including classics from Schumann and Debussy to ragtime tunes and early 20th century popular songs, offer something for everyone.
Alice in Wonderland favorites like the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and the Red Queen all make an appearance in this foot-tapping, side-splitting romp inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic fantasy tale.
Alice in Wonderland Follies is sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin, Inc. It is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. For ticket information, contact the Box Office at 796- 3100.
