ALICE IN WONDERLAND: Theatrical Performance

The Morris-Jumel Mansion will offer audiences the opportunity to experience Lewis Carroll's acclaimed children's story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) as a unique theatrical performance! In contrast with the many sesquicentennial celebrations of Carroll's beloved fantasy, the Mansion's adaptation will incorporate its celebrated association with the American Revolution represented in the characters of the play such as the Mad Hatter (George Washington), Cheshire Cat (Marquis de Lafayette), and White Rabbit (Benedict Arnold).


Adapted and directed by Vincent Carbone with costumes designed by Vanessa Soto, the interactive production tells the story of young Alice, who, visiting the Mansion with her brother,  separates from a tour after catching a glimpse of the White Rabbit dashing through the garden. She discovers herself in Wonderland with the American Revolution as the backdrop. Contention hangs thick in the air, almost as if the revolutionary spark will ignite at any moment. In this environment, Alice (and the audience) must adapt quickly in order to survive this curious land. The audience and Alice will explore the grounds of the Mansion as they encounter Carroll's iconic characters. 

$40, $30 Members/Students/Seniors; $20 same-day Student Rush tickets will be available at the door (Limit 10 per performance).
