alice in fairytale land

alice in fairytale land
the musical
(written and directed by barbara and lon williams)
is only on for two more days
— 24 – 25 may 2008 —
at theatre decatur,
a community theatre
on 430 trinity place in decatur, georgia.
it’s very near the decatur marta station,
and they also have free parking for drivers.

in this musical,
mother nature takes alice
and her invisible pet cat
down the yellow brick road
on a journey through fairytale land
meeting all the fairytale greats like
the little white rabbit and the queens of hearts,
pinocchio (eva sophia ramirez is excellent!) and gepetto,
four of snow white’s seven dwarfs,
cinderella,
the old lady in the shoe,
3 three blind mice
and a fierce farmer who tries to cut off their tails,
and little red riding hood.

this is theatre decatur’s latest children’s program
and it does and excellent job of making theatre accessible to children
in several ways:
the duration of the play was manageable;
the audience was asked to get involved physically and vocally;
and there were children 7 years and older
performing on a stage within a few steps of the audience.

they have a children’s theatre summer camp
30 june – 12 july,
monday – friday, 10 am – 2 pm.
for ages 7 – 15.
(sanaa will have to wait another couple of years…sigh…)
