Join us in a Wonderland you’ve never seen before. The CENTER for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck’s Teens on Stage invites you to step into the world of Alice By Heart, first performed in 2012 by London’s Royal National Theatre. For a limited engagement from February 2-11, audiences can immerse themselves in both the fantastic world from Alice in Wonderland and the reality of England during World War II. Teens on Stage previously entertained audiences with excellent productions of The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, bare: A Pop Opera, Be More Chill, and 13: The Musical. This production of Alice By Heart, featuring high-caliber performances by local teen talent, is not to be missed.
In the rubble of the London Blitz of World War II, Alice Spencer’s (Sarah Griffin, Pine Plains, NY) budding teen life is turned upside down, and she and her dear friend Alfred (E Jeffreys, Rhinebeck, NY) are forced to take shelter in an underground tube station. When the ailing Alfred is quarantined, Alice encourages him to escape with her into their favorite, cherished book and journey once more down the rabbit hole to Wonderland. As Alice draws upon her memory to spin the story, the children, nurses, and doctors trapped underground transform into characters familiar and feared.
Alice by Heart explores the poignancy of first love, coming to terms with loss, and finding the courage to move forward. This musical, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s 1865 novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, encourages us all to celebrate the transformational power of the imagination, even in the harshest of times.
Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
