Alice in Wonderland

After Alice tumbles down a mysterious rabbit hole, she finds herself in a strange land where everyone is raving mad. With the help of a Cheshire Cat, an astute Caterpillar, and a righteous Humpty Dumpty, Alice must find her way home and discover who she really is. A darker, more faithful version of Lewis Carroll's classic tale that reimagines the experience of Wonderland, and ends with an unexpected new twist.

POSSIBLE (TBD) after school performance at Tippit, April 27: 5:30pm - free and open to the public!  Come catch this early performance!


This uproarious play about life, death, power, and first boyfriends is a tug on the heart strings!  Hollywood-wannabe Star has been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, an inherited disease that assures a young death. She spends most of her time in the hospital, morphing her doctor into a superhero from her imagination and her nurse into an Army "torturer." Then, Star gets a new roommate - Courtney - who is Star's total opposite. Pretty. Cheerleader. Taller. Neither girl knows much about each other, but eventually they form a friendship that will last forever.
