The Big Country Children's Performing Arts Theater proudly presents "Alice In Wonderland Jr." Directed by Melanie Unger, at the historic  Paramount Theatre. The classic play that is likened to Disney's original movie 'Alice In Wonderland', only it's performed by children ages 8 to 18 as you'll see in the photos below.

In this play get ready to travel down the old rabbit hole and join the beloved Alice, in her wild and crazy journey. The performance features many updated versions of songs from the original 1951 animated film. Disney’s "Alice in Wonderland JR." is more a a sped up tale. This version is totally updated, upgraded and ready for some fun adventure. And it's about an hour long.

Alice’s curious adventure starts off innocently enough as she goes chasing the old White Rabbit. Her adventures become increasingly more strange as she races off down the hole after the Dodo Bird. Plus, she gets tied up with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, she then collaborates with the highly talented Caterpillar and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game.

There are plenty of whacky characters like three Cheshire Cats and dozens of other strange characters, providing lots of opportunities to showcase all the different musical skill levels that kids have.
