St. John’s Conservatory Theater is proud to announce that its premiere musical comedy, ALICE ISN’T ALL THERE, written by award-winning playwright/composer Brazillia R. Kreep, will begin rehearsals September 2, 2014.
Slated for an October 10th opening, the musical comedy, directed and choreographed by R O’Donnell, musical direction and arrangements by Angela Conzone Dwyer, with sets and costumes by Stephen Chambers, is a spoof on the iconic Lewis Carroll tale ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. Other production team includes Fr. Michael O’Donnell (Executive Producer), Pat Duffy (Orchestrations), Christopher Dwyer (Technical Director), Alynia Hermaine Rule (Production Stage Manager), and Dominic Solis (Production Coordinator).
The story of Alice is told by the Bells & Wheezle Circus Company, a European-style commedia dell’arte, and runs 90 minutes with all original songs. A contemporary Alice finds herself in Wonderland haunted by the Victorian Alice while interacting with all the classic characters. Think Tim Burton dances with Monty Python under the big top and you’ll get the idea.
Local Ogdensburg talent Allexa Hooper and Hailey Weber star as Alice Brimble and Alice Liddle respectively. Other principal talent includes Paige Merz as the Cheshire Cat, Sloane Ryan as Boo Hoo, Steve Summers as Itsy Bitsy, Deanna Bellinger as the Dormouse, Bill LaMere as the March Hare, Angela Conzone Dwyer as the Queen of Hearts, Chris Dwyer and Ryan Woodard as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and R O’Donnell as the Mad Hatter.
Show times are October 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25 with a 7 PM curtain and cost $15 dollars (suggested donation) at the door or $10 dollars at brownpapertickets.com. JCT is on the second floor of St. John’s Parish House located behind St. Johns Episcopal Church off the corner of Franklin and Knox. Parking is available off Franklin.
