Book-It Repertory Theatre

< — Back to Touring Season

GRADES K – 6
TOURS Feb – Jun, 2015
THEMES adventure, curiosity, knowledge, logic, self-confidence
EVENTS Children’s Book Week, Read Across America, School Library Month

One afternoon, as Alice sits in the hot sun, listening to her sister read a book, she sees something amazing—a White Rabbit dressed in clothes running around muttering to himself! Alice runs after him and tumbles down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world called Wonderland. There, Alice encounters Lewis Carroll’s enigmatic characters including the Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts. To navigate through this tangled realm of misdirection and confusion, Alice must rely on her own sense of strength and logic.

Each performance runs between 25 and 45 minutes and can be performed in venues as small as a classroom or as large as an auditorium. In conjunction with each performance, Book-It offers workshops for children and young adults to reinforce what they have seen. These workshops allow young people to make the leap between seeing art and creating it.
