The show is a modern take on the old favorite . Many characters greatly resemble characters from the book such as Cheshire Cat, White Rabbit, Queen of Hearts, Caterpillar and of course Alice herself.
Alice lives a simple life, back in the hills of Humboldt county, and she wants nothing to do with the madness of the modern world. But when she falls through the rabbit hole, she finds herself in the middle of a Police Brutality trial presided over by the Queen of Hearts, a "Tea Party" that is an absurd Presidential Debate between Donald, Bernie and Hillary, a Mock Turtle who sobs over the Transpacific Partnership, a caterpillar that explains the danger of DABS oil, and much more.
Down the Rabbit Hole was written by the 20 talented young actor/creators who make up this year's cast. These thoughtful young people have a lot to say and they have worked hard to put their production together. The show features comedy, drama, spoken word, dance, aerial arts, maskwork, songs and acrobatics.
The show has full production values such as costumes, makeup, lights, sound and beautiful sets thanks to the help of many community members including Margaret Lewis, Jim Fulton, Joe Heine, Joshua Golden, Carl Hansen and Ann McIlwain. Musicians Andy Barnett and Jeanne York will provide music and sound effects. Direction is by Joani Rose with Susan Alexander, Yarrow Danaeus and Margo Gooch-McReynolds.
