A cast of veteran actors, many of whom entertained packed houses in December’s "Cinderella Panto" and a cadre of talented newcomers will take audiences on Adventures through Wonderland and The Looking Glass. Things will become “curiouser and curiouser,” culminating in a trial scene complete with red and white kings and queens. All the favorite characters drift through the show, including the White Rabbit, the March Hare, the Mad Hatter and not one, but two Alices.
