BOCA RATON, FL: Sol Theatre will play host to The Mad Hatter, The Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum, Tweedledee, and of course The White Rabbit, when Sol Children Theatre presents Seth Trucks’ adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s magical classic, Alice in Wonderland. The production will open on August 10th, and run through August 20th at the popular Boca Raton venue. Alice and her friends will then move to the Delray Beach Children’s Garden for three special sunset performances on August 24th, 25th, and 26th.
“This is an original adaptation written specifically for Sol Theatre the actors involved in the production,” explains the show’s director, Seth Trucks. “Our co-director, Savannah Rootes, is a recent graduate of Sol Children’s Troupe and she has returned to pass on her knowledge and passion to our newer members.
“We have enough enthusiasm to power Boca for a year!” Trucks continues. “Our production will balance a faithful approach to Carroll’s language, with a ton of new twists and takes on Wonderland and its strange inhabitants.”
Alice in Wonderland – originally titled Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – was first published in 1865 and immediately became a publishing sensation, beloved by children and adults alike. The book has never been out of print, and has been translated into close to 180 languages. In Trucks’ adaptation, Alice finds a glove belonging to a White Rabbit, and wanting to return it, she follows him down a rabbit hole, into a fantastical Wonderland, where the Queen of Hearts rules over a peculiar assortment of creatures, and Alice’s adventures become ‘curiouser and curiouser’.
Alice in Wonderland’s Alice will be played by three actors: Eden Wexler, Mandy Feuerman and Zoe Alarcon; Noah Fineman has been cast as The White Rabbit, Ava Cavasos as The Mad Hatter, and Brooke Hall as The Queen of Hearts. Other cast members include Jamie Feuerman, Zoe Wexler, Addison Wexler, Zoe Alarcon, Sami Mascaro, Kimberly Wilkinson, Faith Alfieri, Isabella Welch, Natalie Macadar, Emma and Kylie Lawrence, Alan and Amalia Hasselman, Violet Zeiders, Olivia Shiver, Celia Roberts, and Rylee Siegel.
