Davie High Players creating an ‘adventure’

Published 10:21 am Thursday, May 7, 2015

Follow a rabbit to a delightful, entertaining world of childhood fantasies at the Davie High Player’s production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland May 7-9 at the Brock Performing Arts Center on North Main Street in Mocksville.

The play centers around Alice as she journeys into a world of talking animals, comic royalty and races where the contestants run in circles. The Mad Hatter’s famous frantic tea party, a watch-carrying white rabbit, talking flowers, a sneezing duchess and a baby who turns into a pig all lead up to a finale with an interesting twist.

Director and theatre teacher Rebekah Edwards said the play, suitable for children and adults, “gives a modern view to an old classic, where nonsense makes good sense.”

Tickets are available in advance for $10 or are $12 at the door. For more information, contact Edwards at edwardsr@davie.k12.nc.us or751-5905 ext. 4136.
