Think Tim Burton dances with Monty Python under the big top and you’ll get the idea – sort of.
Local Ogdensburg talent Allexa Hooper and Hailey Weber are cast in the principal roles of the two Alice’s both past and present, Alice Brimble and Alice Liddle consecutively. 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.

THE ORCHARD OF HIDE & SEEK
The story of the Orchard of Hide & Seek concerns Queen Gossamer and her eclectic band of fairies that inhabit the old apple orchard on top of the cliffs overlooking the St. Lawrence Sea. They are preparing for their spectacular Midsummer’s Eve celebration when the children of Ennui (the tiny village that surrounds the bottom of the cliff) are playing their annual games of hide and seek. However, unbeknownst to any of them, all are in danger of the Pirate Capt. Jean-Pierre Beunet and Ophelia the Queen Witch of Hubbub, who want to take over the entire Orchard for themselves.
A comical musical spin on Washington Irving’s haunting tale THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HALLOW! Think the “Addams Family” meets “Ichabod Crane” in Brazillia R. Kreep’s fantastic farce KREEPY HALLOW.
