ALICE: a new musical

Music and lyrics by Lesley Anderson and Andrew Barbato 

Book by Andrew Barbato 

a co-production of TheatreLAB and Firehouse Theatre

Directed by Adam B. Ferguson

Sat, Aug 12 - Sat, Aug 26 at TheatreLAB's The Basement (300 East Broad Street)

ADVENTURE IS MY LIFE! This new musical adapted from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass transports us on a fantastical adventure as Alice, relying on her quick wit and big heart, learns the customs of the distorted new world she lands in. Will Alice be able to hold on to her idealism and dreams or be crushed by the pressure to fit in and conform?

Featuring an all-female cast of Richmond's best and brightest young talent!

ALICE is recommended for humans of all ages from 5 to 100 years old! Children will find the story magical and enchanting while an older audience may find it more poignant and whimsical.  There is something for everyone to enjoy in this adaptation.

We can’t wait to see you at The Basement! #RVA #ALICE
