"Alice in Wonderland"
by Lewis Carroll, adapted for stage by Jeannette Jaquish
Z Center Stage Theater Company, 1602 2nd Ave., Zillah, Washington 98953
Performance dates: Nov 1-13, 2012
EXCERPT: "Our 2012 production featured a script by independent author Jeannette Jaquish, and it closely followed the original book. We inserted a scene with Tweedledee and Tweedledum from the sequel Through the Looking Glass because of their appearance in the beloved Disney cartoon, and because we have really funny costumes for them! Our set is inspired by an outdoor theaterís approach from back Eastóthe crazy patterns and uneven lines match up with the unpredictability of Wonderland itself. "
LOTS of great photos and a superb poster. Very interesting history of Alice in Wonderland and Charles Dodgson/Lewis Carroll.

---- Directed by Jerry R. Ditter (jditter( at sign )highlandcc.edu).
EXCERPT: "Chasing the White Rabbit, Alice plunges down the rabbit hole and into a madcap and deliciously satiric series of adventures immortalized by Lewis Carroll. This is a journey into a world of complete illusion, full of fantastic shapes and unreal perspectives. Told in traditional shadow puppetry style, audiences will be in for a treat as the performers create characters and settings in 2-dimensional shadows enhanced with color and texture. This magical dream sequence is book-ended by 3-dimensional live performances in a monochromatic palette. "

EXCERPT: "Alice in Wonderland is wildly popular because Carroll wrote a logical plot that is framed in nonsense and splattered with symbolism which becomes a celebration of language and childhood imagination. It reminds all of us to believe in the extraordinary as well as in our own dreams. The adaptation by Jaquish has stayed true to the characters, plot, mood, and intellectual humor of the book. "

---- Directed by Hollie Klem
EXCERPT: "In this stylish rendition of the classic tale, Alice is confronted by an array of peculiar characters ranging from a glam rock White Rabbit to the sadistic, whip-toting, gothic Queen of Hearts. As sweet little Alice triumphs over life-threatening obstacles and negotiates outlandish inquiries, we watch her grow, piece by piece, from the little girl who didn't want to do her lessons into a bright young lady with her own sense of style and purpose."
