Down the rabbit hole we go!
Public performance of Alice in Wonderland at Capital Repertory Theatre, 11 a.m. Saturday, March 10
ALBANY, N.Y.—FEB. 27, 2018—With Capital Repertory Theatre’s On-The-Go! school touring program, thousands of students experience fully-realized professional productions every year.
Alice in Wonderland, on the road throughout the region March 5–29, is the latest in a scintillating list of titles created for the series. A single public performance takes place 11 a.m. Saturday, March 10, at Capital Repertory Theatre, 111 N. Pearl Street, Albany.
Tickets, $11 adults; $9, children 17 and under, are available at the Box Office at theREP; by phone at 518.445.7469; and online at capitalrep.org.
The new Alice adaptation is the first written collaboration between Producing Artistic Director Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill and Assistant Artistic Director Margaret E. Hall (who also helms the production). Carroll’s classic language will be brought to life by Alex Koza, Kaitlin Noble, Joshua Redfield, James Stafford and Cooper Stanton, whose talents include circus, magic and acrobatics. Imagine a Mad Hatter who can juggle, a unicycling White Rabbit and a breakdancing Caterpillar!
“All of the members of the cast are making their Capital Repertory Theatre debut with Alice,” says Hall, “and four of the five are receiving Actors’ Equity Cards with this production—a workforce development aspect of OTG that the theREP is quite proud of.”
Patrons will be dazzled by the artistry of Costume Designer Evan Prizant (who created the beautiful period pieces for theREP’s She Loves Me), and Sound Designer Rider Q. Stanton (She Loves Me, Shakespeare: The Remix and the upcoming Blithe Spirit); and movement shaped by actor/choreographer Taylor Hilt Mitchell (A Christmas Story, The Musical! and Mamma Mia). Rounding out the production team are Set Designer Andrea Nice and College of Saint Rose sculpture technician Jack Shaefer, who will be designing and building White Rabbit and Cheshire Cat puppets specifically for this production.
