Alice: A Variation on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland is a new take on Carroll's classic tales crafting a story of a young girl named Alice Pleasance Liddell and the relationship she develops with Charles Dodgson (alias Lewis Carroll). Overcoming her parents' stifling indifference, Alice discovers her creativity through adventures on the other side of the looking glass, conquering her fears as she approaches a vision of her true self.

The play is framed within a conversation between Carroll and Liddell, who was the inspiration for the fictional Alice character. This devised narrative movement piece was developed through a collaborative process grounded in ensemble. The play was first produced by Belmont University's Department of Theatre and Dance in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2015.

Recommended for all audiences.

'Woolf' Script Review, Audition Early July

Curtain Players is ready for another Season 55 script review and audition, these for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee.

Director Michael Day leads the community theatre’s script review, set for Wednesday July 5 at 6:30 PM at the 5691 Harlem Road (Galena OH 43021) playhouse.

The audition follows Sunday July 9 (registration at 6:30 PM, tryout at 7), also at the Harlem Road (Galena OH 43021) playhouse.

Click here for script review and audition details, including plans for rehearsals and character descriptions. In Edward Albee's award-winning iconic play, a middle-aged college professor and his wife invite into their home an unwitting younger couple for drinks after a late-night faculty party. The resulting evening is a wicked jumble of mind games, attempted seductions, and shattering revelations.

Day has been involved with Curtain Players since 2007 and has extensive acting, directing, technical and design, and administrative experience in central Ohio theatre. His Curtain credits include directing Dial M for Murder and Arsenic and Old Lace. He is stage manager for the  current Alice staging in the Westerville amphitheater. Day serves as webmaster for Curtain Players and has been board treasurer and production manager. He is a recipient of the Near Award, one of Curtain Players's highest honors.

Curtain Players presents Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? for eight performances at the playhouse October 20-November 5.
