Alice in Wonderland
by Sam Bass Community Theatre
Apr. 05 - Apr. 28, 2019
Sam Bass Theatre, the premiere theatrical venue for Round Rock, Texas, is pleased to present "Alice in Wonderland", a "theatrical marvel" that was created by famed American director Andre Gregory and the Manhattan Project, and re-imagined for the Old Depot Stage by director Ashley Zeh-Perez.
The original production was created by Gregory and his company through a months-long improvisation period based on Lewis Carroll’s "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland", "Through the Looking-Glass", and "What Alice Found There". The end result is an avant-garde, exuberant and funny variant of Carroll's classic that is decidedly not the Disney-fied version with which most of us are familiar.
The cast includes Camryn Lee as Angela/Alice; Frederick Demps as Jerry/Dodgson/Lory/Mad Hatter/Alice’s Ball/White Knight; Shannon Anderson as Larry/Caterpillar/Dormouse/Wicket/Humpty; and Autumn Sherman as Gerry/White Rabbit/Dodo/Hare/Queen’s Ball. Donald Koehler portrays Tom/Lewis/Crab/Cook/White King/Red King; Gabi Ledesma plays Mouse/Cheshire Cat/Forest; and Deborah Hanna takes on the roles of Saskia/Duck/Red Queen/White Queen.
"I was really drawn to this version of 'Alice in Wonderland' because it has all the traditional things we love about the story, but is done in a newer, darker way", Perez says. "It is a very ensemble-driven show and we’ve been able to create a lot of super interesting moments that I’m excited for everyone to see."
