The public is invited to accompany Alice to Wonderland and through the looking glass during the Alfred State Drama Club’s fifth annual dinner theater performance, "Alice in Wonderland," March 31 to April 2 at the Lake Lodge, 6107 Terbury Road, Alfred Station.
Performing Eva Le Gallienne’s and Florida Friebus' adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Alice books, a cast of 16 actors will portray more than 30 characters from both "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There." This year's Alice-themed menu is pear salad, glazed carrots, duchess twice-baked potatoes, penne with rustic marinara, orange marmalade haddock, and flank steak with chocolate sauce and sautéed mushrooms, cheesecake with assorted toppings, and coffee and teas served at intermission.
As in previous years, there will be a full cash bar open during the dinner hour and at intermission. Dinner begins at 6 p.m.
Tickets for dinner theater are $20 per person and must be reserved by March 17 through the Alfred State Campus Store at 607-587-4020. The store accepts cash, check, credit cards, student campus spending account, and meal swipes.
If you'd like to visit Wonderland without dinner, please come to the Wednesday evening performance on March 30 at 7 p.m. Tickets for that show, which will be available at the door and for reservation through the campus store, are $2 for students and $5 for general admission. A bus will run to and from campus before and after the performance, and there will be an opening night dessert reception after that show.
“Alice in Wonderland (Le Galliene and Friebus)” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
