High-energy song and dance will be showcased at Owens Community College as the Center for Fine and Performing Arts presents “Alice and Wonderland, A Rock Opera” Sunday, Oct. 10 at 3 .m. in the Mainstage Theatre.
“Owens Community College is proud to present the talents of The Magik Theatre and their own unique version and interpretation of the timeless classic children’s book ‘Alice in Wonderland,’” said Barbara Barkan, Owens director for the Center for Fine and Performing Arts. “The performance is sure to delight attendees of all ages as Alice and her cast of characters bring theatre, dance and music to life in what can best be described as a rock concert.”
Based in San Antonio, the Magik Theatre was founded in 1994 with the overall mission of providing extraordinary and affordable professional theatre and educational experiences for children and adults, as well as promoting an interest and understanding of theatre and literature. Since the first curtain rose over 16 years ago, the organization has performed to more than 1.3 million people.
The theatre also offers arts education outreach programs that include free in-school workshops.
Presented in the style of The Who’s Broadway musical “Tommy,” “Alice and Wonderland, A Rock Opera” will feature author Lewis Carroll’s most memorable characters and their adventures from the timeless literary classic, including the Cheshire Cat, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and Alice.
