Children's Theatre to present "Dorothy in Wonderland"

2/9/16
By UW-Marinette

UW-Marinette Children’s Theatre is pleased to present Dorothy in Wonderland February 12, 13 and 14, 2016 in the Herbert L. Williams Theatre. The worlds of Oz and Wonderland collide in this fantastically fun romp, cleverly and carefully adapted from the works of L. Frank Baum and Lewis Carroll.  

Dorothy Gale (Karah Nelson) has made her way to the end of the Yellow Brick Road, and the wonderful Wizard of Oz (Galen Hodlofski) is just about to help her get back home to Kansas. But before she can hop into the wizard’s balloon, another whirlwind appears over the Emerald City, sweeping Dorothy, Toto (Ozzie Nykanen), Scarecrow (Kayelona Rakowski), Tin Man (Joseph Schwaba) and Lion (Bryeli Smith) away to Wonderland. Equipped with their new assets — brains, heart and courage — Dorothy’s friends try to help her find her way home, meeting many other interesting characters along the way, including Alice (Madalyn Zelm), the White Rabbit (Logan Ayers), Mad Hatter (Jonah Zuehls), March Hare (Peyton Berman), the Cheshire Cat (Salsabeel Salem & Kate Schwaba) and many more.  They also must face a dangerous new foe — the Queen of Hearts (Jessica Weiss)! 

Dorothy and Alice team up to defeat the queen at croquet, but will that be enough to return Wonderland to normal?  And how will they ever get back home to Kansas and to London? Other members of the cast include Gabriella Barker, Phoebe Barrette, Ashley Bechtold, Kaylee Behrendt, Alexandria Bournonville, Camryn Brissette, Maysen Brissette, Landon Corwin, Maggie Fernandez, Marin Fernandez, Dylan Grandaw, Georgieanna Grandaw, Lauren Halfmann, Samara Hobbs, Meredith Lakari, Andrea Leboeuf, Lydia Leboeuf, Abby Meisner, Alex Meyers, Killian Meyers, Peyton Miller, Katie Olson, Delia Paquette, Amy Roer, Charlie Rowell, Isabel Rowell, Muaz Salem, Avery Smith, Abby Snowtala, Zachariah Staidl, Alyssa Thayer and Connor Whisler.

Dorothy in Wonderland will be presented February 12-14, 2016, Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. on the Nancy Gehrke Stage in the Herbert L. Williams Theatre at UW-Marinette.
