Wonderland: Alice’s Rock & Roll Adventure

Book by Rachel Rockwell. Music by Michael Mahler.
Lyrics by Michael Mahler and Rachel Rockwell.

Produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois

The Rose Theater takes you down a daringly different rock-n-roll rabbit hole in this enticing contemporary re-imagining of the Lewis Carroll classic. Join Alice as she encounters the familiar faces of Wonderland whirled together with a wild wide range of modern music styles, from glam rock glitter and pop-hook punk to jangly guitar grinds and stadium anthem swagger. All roads lead to the mysterious Jabberwock, whom Alice must confront in order to discover her own powerful voice. A uniquely electrifying extravaganza that will whisk you off to Wonderland in a whole new way!
