CAST players presents..."Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"
for 6th-12th graders - This is not a muscial
$50.00 participation fee per student.

Follow the rabbit to a delightful, entertaining world of childhood fantasies.  Alice journeys into a world of talking animals, comic royalty, and races where the contestants run in circles!  There are also the Mad Hatter's frantic tea party, the watch-carrying White Rabbit and talking flowers.  Along the way Alice must deal with a sneezing duchess and a baby that turns into a pig!  The finale has Alice watching a trial, but she suddenly finds herself the accused!  The play gives a modern view to a old classic, where nonsense makes quite good sense.

CAST is a theater organization helping to preserve the arts in the greater Manchester area and beyond.  CAST started as a small childrens' theater group run out of the home of its Co-Founder, Donna Mercier.  In the beginning, CAST operated primarily during the summer, mounting musical productions out of Manchester High School's Bailey Auditorium.   However, since inception, CAST has grown ten fold.
CAST, Inc. now operates out of its own facility on Summit Street in Manchester, CT.   CAST has grown from a childrens' theater group doing summer musicals to a full scale theatre group offering year-round  productions and classes for children.  There is also a splinter group known as CAST After Dark offering theater productions for teens and adults. CAST is a nonprofit organization run by volunteers and all funds raised are used to maintain our program.
C.A.S.T. is located at 113 Summit Street, Manchester, CT.
