Ready to go down the rabbit hole? Before summer arrives in town, WOW-EFFECT Theater will steal a dark night of yours and will wrap it up to the colors of a trip. Be sure to reserve your seats in time for this unforgettable journey. Alice vs. Wonderland Alice, a typical modern teenager, trades places with Mary-Ann, the Wonderland version of herself. Now Alice must travel through a fantastical, psychedelic dreamscape, challenged by Carroll’s canonical characters every step of the way. Transforming every time she eats or drinks, Alice is played by six different actresses, each evoking a different aspect of adolescence. ALICE VS.
