“We’re villains, we’re villains, we’re always more than
willing, to do a dirty little deed. Stick the hero with a pin, steal away his heroine, steal some candy from a tyke, knock a kid right off his bike.”
Stagestruck Players, the youth division of Brunswick Little Theatre, will shed some interesting possibilities next week on how
these pairings might work in their upcoming production of “Dorothy Meets Alice.”
The production is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9, 10, 16 and 17 and 3 p.m. Nov. 11 and 18 at Playhouse 211 at St. James on N.C. 211.
When Justin (Ryan Tewell) puts off writing his book report until the last minute, he mixes up the stories and characters of the two books and creates some interesting and fun situations for Dorothy (Madison Ward), Alice (Kami Fillman), and all the other characters to work through with hilarious results as the familiar cast is presented in some interesting and different ways.
The cast includes the Cowardly Lion (Jacob Chabra), the White Rabbit (Eliza Fish), the Tin Man (Sophie Zapf), the Mad Hatter (Chase Costin), the Scarecrow (Hannah Caison), the Dormouse (Nic Tewell), the Queen of Hearts (Gina Flow), and the Wicked
Witch (Sidney Parker).
It’s a fun-filled romp, with script and lyrics by award-winning children’s playwright Joseph Robinette and a fresh musical score by Broadway musical director Karl Jurman. “Dorothy Meets Alice” is a fun and fanciful fantasy at its finest.
The show is directed by veteran director, singer, and actress Debbie Skillman with choreography by Bev Veenker, a recipient of the prestigious Outstanding FacultyAward by Dance Educators of America. (Some of the other recipients of this
award are Gregory Hines, Michey Roner, Mikhail Baryshnikov, and Anne Miller.) The set is by Broadway scenic
designer Paul Bertelsen, who now lives in Brunswick County.
Tickets prices are $17 for adults, $12 for students and $6 for children ages 12 and younger.
An opening night special (Friday, Nov. 9) will allow one child age 12 or younger to get in free with the purchase of one adult ticket.
