Dorothy in Wonderland – Maitland Repertory Theatre
Maitland Repertory Theatre will be presenting its Junior Production for the year, with this fantastically fun romp which has been cleverly and carefully adapted from the works of L. Frank Baum and Lewis Carroll.
In this production the worlds of Oz and Wonderland collide for a hit for audiences both young and old.
In the plot, Dorothy Gale has made her way to the end of the Yellow Brick Road and the wonderful Wizard of Oz is just about to help her get back home to Kansas. But before she can hop into the wizard’s balloon, another whirlwind appears over the Emerald City, sweeping Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion away to Wonderland.
Equipped with their new assets of brains, heart and courage, Dorothy’s friends try to help her find her way home. Along the way she meets many other interesting characters, including Alice, the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, March Hare, the Cheshire Cat and more.
Together they must also face a dangerous new foe — the Queen of Hearts! Dorothy and Alice team up to defeat the queen at croquet, but will that be enough to return Wonderland to normal?
