Specially adapted from the 1951 film and the novels by Lewis Caroll, Disney’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND JR. includes all your favorite Disney tunes, like “I’m Late” and “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah”. In this classic Disney story, Alice follows the little white rabbit down the rabbit hole into Wonderland where she meets twin clowns Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, races the Dodo Bird, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, has tea with The Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter, and faces the evil Queen of Hearts. A talented cast and crew of 41 Summer Production Camp students between the ages of six and fourteen bring the ensemble of humans, animals, flowers, and cards to life. Cast members of Disney’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND JR. reside in Wellesley as well as neighboring communities including Weston, Newton, Waban, Natick, Sherborn, Waltham, Dover, and Dedham.
Disney’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND JR. production staff includes: Benjamin Rush, Director, Choreographer, and Set Designer; Tristan Bouchard, Musical Director; Megan Pillsbury, Costume Designer; and Seif Cristobal, Lighting Designer. The music and lyrics are by Sammy Fain, Bob Hillard Oliver Wallace, Cy Coban, Alli Wrubel, Ray Gilbert, Mack David, Al Hoffman, and Jerry Livingston. Music adapted and arranged and additional music and lyrics by Bryan Lousille. Book adapted and additional lyrics by David Simpatico.
