The Carteret Community Theatre presents the Manhattan Project's version of Alice in Wonderland. Performed in the intimate setting of the Beaufort Arts Center you'll feel like you too have fallen down the rabbit hole right alongside Alice in Andre Gregory's adaptation of the classic stories "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass." Far from the Disney version, this fast-paced, madcap show is pure creative imagination. It reflects a beauty only otherwise achieved in the dreams of a sleeping child. It goes far beyond the boundaries and rules set for theatre, captures the magic of the mind's eye and puts it on stage.

It's hard to imagine anyone not knowing the story of Alice and her amazing adventures, but you probably won't remember them quite like this! The usually unusual characters make their appearances, but this time we get a view of Alice's adventures from a point of view. Full of truth, fun, and terror: Singing mushrooms? What's behind all those doors? What exactly has that caterpillar been smoking?

Director Lindsay Thornton says "We're all a little mad down here...come join us! Bring your imagination, fasten on your hair, grab your croquet mallet, put the best butter in your watch and let our seven-person ensemble take you on a wild and wacky romp through Wonderland."

Alice in Wonderland, April 13, 14, 20 & 21 at 8pm and April 15 & 22 at 2pm at The Beaufort Arts Center 204 Turner St., Beaufort, NC. Roll the dice for your ticket price ($8 to $12). This show is rated PG-13 and not for children. Tickets will be sold at the door. For ticket reservations or more information please call 252-726-8971 or visit
