WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Kids, parents, grandparents and school groups, get ready to rock. Wonderland, Alice's Rock & Roll Adventure, a new family musical created by top Chicago director Rachel Rockwell and music director Michael Mahler, is Chicago Children's Theatre's second world premiere in 2014-15, and its big season finale. Chicago's theater scene promises to get curiouser and curiouser when this powerhouse duo of A-list Chicago theater artists, both making their CCT debut, boldly reimagine Lewis Carroll's books Alice in Wonderland and Through the Lookingglass.

Wonderland is the search for one's authentic self. How can you march to the beat of your own drummer when you're still writing the song? Carroll's beloved, poetic tale of self-actualization is brought to life by a cast of actor/ musicians who create an eclectic rock soundtrack as 7-1/2 year-old Alice searches for her own inner musical voice. Ranging from classic rock to punk to ska with a little bit of Bollywood, the actors surround Alice in a rich musical tapestry as she searches for her destiny. Along the way, Alice faces challenges and fears, but meets the ultimate test in the form of the Jabberwocky, an insidious monster made of up of the dark thoughts and self-doubt that lurks inside of us all. In learning to believe in the impossible, Alice learns to believe in herself.
