The plot is an original adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic novels Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Weehawken's Artistic Director for Dance, Natasha Pyeatte.
“We used scenes and elements from both books,” said Pyeatte. “It's won't be exactly like the Disney version," but “it will feature characters with which many young and old children are familiar.” Those include Alice, the Caterpillar and the Queen of Hearts.
In addition, audiences will enjoy meeting “some new characters along the way.”
The production is packed with 100 cast members from the area, ages 3 through adult, most of whom are currently in the Weehawken dance program. Weehawken's dance program will be ending its spring semester with this production in celebration of the past 15 weeks of class.
Though the show has no talking or words, audience members are sure to enjoy the spectacles that abound on stage, showcasing ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, and Celtic dance styles.
Admission to the public performances is $10 per adult and $5 for children ages 10 and under. Tickets are available in Montrose at Travelin' Tots; in Ridgway at Cimarron Coffee and Books; in Ouray at Mouse's Chocolates, Buckskin Booksellers and Khristopher's Culinaire; and through Weehawken Creative Arts by phone at 970/318-0150. Tickets generally sell fast for these performances, so it is advisable to get your tickets in advance.
