Alice in Wonderland
It's going to be a wild ride when precocious little Alice leads us on the raucous journey of things that are not always what they seem! Coastal Ballet USA and Charleston Ballet Theatre Center for Dance “Alice in Wonderland, with choreography by Jill Eathorne Bahr, takes the stage May 26, 2017, at The Charleston Music Hall. The full-length ballet runs for one evening (7 pm). Tickets are available at www.charlestonballet.com or by calling 843-469-2080.
Alice in Wonderland features fantastical new costumes by Chicago Based costume designer Travis Halsey inspired by the surrealism of Cirque du Soleil. Bahr and Halsey have spent many hours corresponding on the designs for the White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, March Hare, the Caterpillar along with an entire deck of cards which is portrayed by the students of the school

It would have been impossible for a child not to enjoy this performance, and though it is suitable for adults as well, the dance is by no means the focus. Little touches, like Alice and the White Rabbit jumping offstage (into the rabbit hole) and the wild tea party — complete with oversized plastic tea cups and pots — succeed in creating a cohesive and entertaining alternate reality.

Meet all of the birds, A Dodo Bird, The Duck and the Lory, Dormouse, Mock Turtle, Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit with the music by French composers Poulenc, Milhaud, Pierne, and Debussy. Alice in Wonderland include special guests from across the United States, including Alexander Collen as the March Hare, Katie Badgett as the Caterpillar, Kylie Morton Berry as the Queen of Hearts Michaela Rodriguez as the Mad Hatter and Elizabeth Nicole as Alice.
