"Dorothy Meets Alice or The Wizard of Wonderland"
By Joseph Robinette
Based on the musical by Joseph Robinette and Karl Jurman.
Two of literature’s most famous young ladies meet at last when a young man puts off his book report until the last minute. Suddenly in a strange place, somewhere between Oz and Wonderland, familiar characters like the Cowardly Lion, the Mad Hatter, the Scarecrow and the White Rabbit need his help to unscramble their stories and avoid the Wicked Witch and the Red Queen. This hilarious, adventurous romp is filled with laughter and surprises at every turn.
