Wonderland: Alice’s Rock & Roll Adventure
through January 2, 2022
I don’t think Lewis Carroll could possibly have imagined Alice’s Adventures winding up as a Rock & Roll expedition. But, were he still around he would surely be thrilled to see the production that Synchronicity is currently staging.
Jennifer Acker directs this highly energetic cast of 8 main players in more than 18 roles, with 3 more players onstage as the band working through all the numbers. Alice is played by Ja’siah Young as she searches into trying to find herself. Along the way she deals with that really goofy rabbit (Hannah Lake Chatham) and that Mad Hatter (Iliana Rivera). Of course you will also see the caterpiller (Anna Dvorak Gonzalez), the doormouse (Brandon Shaw), the Jabberwock ( Danny Crowe) and the March Hare (David Wells). And how could they go on without that egocentric Queen/King played by Autumn Hamilton.
The show is one that provides just pure pleasure to kids from 5 to 95. The costumes by Derrick Vanmeter are a hoot, and the choreography by Kimmee Gee is like watching the Olympics. It is a real honor and pleasure to see a small company such as this, stage a show so well crafted and performed.
Synchronicity is located on Peachtree Street, easy to get to, good seats and views and a really pleasant venue. Be aware that they do have Covid rules; so bring your CDC card, photo ID and know that your mask is required while in the building. I assure you that you will leave the show with a feeling of total satisfaction and pleasure. More info at SynchroTheatre.com
