EL PASO — A local children's theatre presents "Alice in... the Borderland???"
"Well, Alice...she's really bored and then she takes a nap and then she's got this really crazy dream about all these weird people and weird animals like mice that talk," explained Actor Uli Bubel.
These kids have their act together as part of "A Children's Theatre's" production of "Alice in Wonderland"... where life is but a dream.
"We've taken things that we normally have and we've skewed them a little bit so that they're not necessarily everything that they seem," said Theatre Director Amanda Baca.
ACT... a non-profit children's theatre... offers three production classes each year... all of which lead up to a set of performances... where the little actors will entertain about 800 children in the Las Cruces School District.
"This is a very unique opportunity for them something that, it is their medium that they work through and just a wonderful place for them to be to express themselves," said ACT Show Coordinator Pinky Kingsley.
The pint-sized performers will also play to a larger audience during two public shows.
Kingsley says the show will be everyone's cup of tea.
"Every performance that you go to will be new because that's how live theatre works. They can expect wonderful things from our kids because that's what they always put out," said Kingsley.
You can "go mad" for ACT's production of "Alice in Wonderland" Friday, March 16th at 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 17th at 1 p.m.
Tickets cost $6 at the door.
