Theatre production of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ will land at Purdue in January
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — “Alice in Wonderland” will be performed at 3 p.m. Jan. 26 in Stewart Center’s Loeb Playhouse on the campus of Purdue University.
This performance is presented by Purdue Convocations with support from Wilson, Arni’s restaurant, and Mary Lou Donuts.
At 2 p.m. in the Stewart Center lobby, magical acts inspired by the production will be performed.
While hiding in her father’s study one day, Alice encounters a strange rabbit who loves to eat books. After chasing him into his hole, Alice discovers Wonderland — a world of strange creatures, both friend and foe. Experience “Alice in Wonderland” with a unique new twist — set in a library full of pop-up books, where each new title unlocks a door to exciting adventure. A YouTube video is available here.
