UK Theatre to Conclude Season with 'Alice in Wonderland'

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 7, 2016) — Join the University of Kentucky Department of Theatre and Dance as it brings audiences a twist on the classic “Alice in Wonderland” in its final production of the season. “Alice in Wonderland” will run April 14-24, at Guignol Theatre.

Tumble down the rabbit hole with Alice into Wonderland, where nothing is as it seems. Alice’s whimsical adventure through Lewis Carroll’s mad world finds her in mind-bending debates with an enigmatic Cheshire Cat, a dubious caterpillar and tea party companion the March Hare. The cards are stacked against her when Alice finds herself face-to-face with the maleficent Queen of Hearts, a royal with a taste for beheading. Who are you? That’s the puzzle.

This production of "Alice in Wonderland" is a dark look through the rabbit hole, and may not be suitable for all audiences. It is recommended that children interested in attending

be at least 8 years of age.

“Alice in Wonderland” will take the Guignol stage at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, April 14-16 and April 21-23, and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 17 and 24. Tickets are $15 for the general public and $10 for UK students with a valid ID through the Singletary Center box office. A processing fee will be added upon completion of transaction.
