The Experience ‘will interact with the children
Westerville youth who attend “Alice in Wonderland: The Westerville South High School Experience” should expect “Fantastic Land”.
Director Matthew Wolfe said the children’s production of “Alice in Wonderland” is designed to be multisensory and provide a first-time theatrical experience for children.
The public will have a few chances to discover the wonderland. Shows are scheduled at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on September 25 and September 26 at 3 p.m. at Westerville South, 303 S. Otterbein Ave.
The doors will open at the time of the start of the show.
The kids will be taken in small groups by an actor who will tell them everything they need to hear about the show, according to Wolfe.
During the actor-led tour, young people will be able to climb and touch all parts of the whole of Wonderland, join the Mad Hatter for a snack, smell what the cook has in his stew, and learn some of the secrets. of wonderland.
Finally, said Wolfe, guests can tour the dealerships and find seats where families feel safe and comfortable to watch a quick and wacky 35-minute one-act adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Tales of The Adventures of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Through the Looking Glass.’
Wolfe said parents and children of all ages are welcome to experience the experience, take photos and enjoy in a very close, personal and new way to experience theater.
Freshman Daria Lesmerises, who plays the Mad Hatter, said families should come see the show because it is unlike any other.
“About half of it is just being able to interact with characters, which is really cool for a kid to be able to do that,” she said.
“This show is super unique because this group of students love to interact with the audience,” said Rylee Jennings, a sophomore who plays Alice. “We like to involve children, as well as adults. “
Second grade Katy Mowery, who plays the White Rabbit, said how the kids would feel upon meeting the characters in their storybooks should make the whole family happy.
“Adults will appreciate the silliness of the classic tale, and children can lose all sense of reality in this incredible tale,” she said.
Freshman Bee Phillips, who plays White Knight, said it wasn’t just a play, but an experience.
“People can interact with the characters and take their own trip to Wonderland,” Phillips said.
Tickets are $ 10 at the door and online.
