Meet the Characters

Alice from Alice in Wonderland. Journey down the rabbit hole this spring!


Caitlin Valentine | Carly Wheaton

Alice is a precocious young girl who follows her curiosity down a rabbit hole and into a magic-filled Wonderland. Her sense of reason is put to the test as she meets lively characters who intrigue, delight and frighten her—only to discover that with some logic, wit and strategy, she can find her way back to reality.

The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland!

Mad Hatter

Michael Sayre | Gabriel Gaffney Smith

Mad Hatter is a mercurial and colorful character, especially in dress, and is oftentimes both witty and a bit nonsensical. His wild-eyed and energetic movements indicate his mind can easily be persuaded from one thought to the next, making his eccentricity come across as seemingly mad, i.e. “mad as a hatter.”

He's late! The white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland!

The White Rabbit

Jim Nowakowski | Miguel Anaya

The White Rabbit, always in a hurry and often with a quivering voice, is sure to warm any heart with his persnickety yet loveable ways. He is fiercely loyal, aims to please and through his quest to keep others on time and on task, he indirectly guides Alice along her adventures.

The Queen from Alice in Wonderland

Queen of Hearts

Madeline Skelly | Grace-Anne Powers

The Queen of Hearts is a cold and ill-tempered, yet fantastical, ruler who author Lewis Carroll described as “a blind fury.” She’s quick to judge—and to sentence to death, making “Off with his head!” her oft-repeated phrase.

Dor mouse from Alice in Wonderland!


Jessica Brown | TyLeigh Baughman

The unassuming and easily offended Dormouse dances in circles just as much as she interferes with the quibblings of the March Hare and Mad Hatter.  While sleepiness persists for this little mouse, she can surprisingly act superior with guests at the endless and unpleasant tea party.

The hare from Alice in Wonderland!

March Hare

Jacob Beasley* | Jacob Mingus**

The louder, ruder counterpart of the hatter, the March Hare is full of energy and less of a gentleman.  He argues with guests, and is quietly gratified by stupefying others in his carrying on with riddles without answers.  Despite this, the hare enjoys to jolly with his favorite friends at their ever-lasting tea party.
