West Orange High School Theater Takes Audience Down the Rabbit Hole with "Alice in Wonderland"

WEST ORANGE, NJ - In a whimsical change of pace, the West Orange High School Theatre Department presented "Alice in Wonderland" as its fall play from Nov. 18-20.

The classic Lewis Carroll tale was brought to life with humor, wit, and the usual whacky characters that populated Carroll's tale of Alice, a young girl who follows a talking rabbit into a rabbit hole and lands in Wonderland. Nothing is as it seems there, and Carroll made sure to infuse the characters with enough depth that audiences can recognize the human condition in every strange encounter.
