THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE, a play adapted by Rosemary Nursey-Bray, finds Alice, on a sleepy afternoon, playing chess when she enters the looking glass into a world of strange back-to-front magic.

Stepping through the mirror, she meets kings and queens of her chess set. The world inside the glass is marked out as a chess board, across which she must travel as a pawn.

She meets talking flowers, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, sees Humpty Dumpty, meets the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, and witnesses the furious battle between the Lion and the Unicorn fighting for the crown.

The gentle White Knight rescues her from the cruel Red Knight, as she is able to reach the eighth square and become queen. Or is it all a dream?

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE features a talented cast of twelve students between the ages of twelve and seventeen.

Cast members of THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS reside in Wellesley as well as neighboring communities including Natick, Needham, Newton, and Dover.

The production staff includes: Lydia Jane Graeff, Director; Alexa Brooke Lambert, Stage Manager & Prop Master; Tristan Bouchard, Music Arranger; Jennie McGuiness, Puppet Design & Construction; Ben Rush, Scenic, Lighting, & Projection Designer; Ash Long, Costume Designer, and Bec Lowe; Assistant Costume Designer.
