The Playhouse Children’s Theater Company has reworked its interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” and will present “Alice’s Dream” for two weekends at the First Church second-floor Parish Hall, Court and Spring streets.

Performances will be Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 8 through 10, at 7:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, Oct. 16 and 17, at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 18, at 4:30 p.m., the run’s only matinee.

A year ago, the company began to read the scripts and watched several varied filmed productions of the stories. “Alice’s Dream” is the second part of a yearlong study and celebration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of the “Alice in Wonderland” stories by Lewis Carroll. In June, the cast of 20 presented “The Alice Experience – the Words” at The Playhouse. Now they are bringing the words to life on a larger scale. The cast, ranging in age from 7 to 15, will use dance and large puppets to bring this famous story to the stage.

Directed by Mary Weaver and helped by the parents of the cast, this show offers a wonderful way to introduce children to the delightful nonsense of Lewis Carroll and to enjoy again the pleasure of all of the famous characters that many have kept in their minds since reading about them for the first time.

Tickets are $5 at door; seating is limited, so call 338-5777 for reservations. Doors will open 15 minutes before curtain.
