Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

And as promised, here are photos from the production...

Alice with her Tutor, Mrs. Talon

Falling Down the Rabbit Hole

The Hall of Doors


"The table is too tall!"

The Wet Creatures... building the puppets was one of my favorite parts of this production!

"The floor is open for suggestions!" "Ahh!!"

Alice, huge in the White Rabbit's House

After she's returned to "normal" size

The other three puppets (Noodle, Spike and Bill)

The Cheshire Cat, The Duchess, Alice and The cook

The two "stars" of the show... Tater as Pig Baby

The Cheshire Cat under her blacklight

Mad Hatter and the Dormouse

The Tea Party scene

Alice with the Gryphon and the Mock Turtle

The Queen, King and White Rabbit at Court

The Court Scene... unfortunately to get everyone it had to be a wide shot. There are 23 actors and seven puppets on stage.
And there you have it... Adams State College's production of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as seen through photos.

Sneak Peak...

Here is a sneak peak at a few of the costumes from the show. Tater and I posed with these cast members on Sunday at the Alumni matinee. The Alumni office sets up a picture taking/reception area in our X-Box theatre where the children who come can get their picture taken with the cast. There was time at the end so Tater and I snuck into a picture too!

We are taking our archive photos this afternoon so I should hopefully be able to post more once I get those from the photographer.

And in other news... in just four days there will be exactly two months until Mr. Wesley's due date! That seems like almost no time and also like an eternity! In the last week or so I have started to feel pregnant. By that I mean the pregnant that people talk about... it's harder to get up and down from the sofa. It's almost impossible to bend at the waist. It's a little bit of a challenge to get my shoes tied, etc... I look forward to seeing my belly (and therefore my baby) grow over the next two months!

Opening Night!

I know I haven't blogged much about Alice (or anything for that matter). I have been pretty darn ill and that coupled with rehearsals that make getting home before 11pm (and a few nights midnight) impossible this last week blogging has been low on the priority list.

But... It's OPENING NIGHT! We are ready. The students are ready for a receptive audience and I'm ready to have a rest! :) I'll hopefully get some photos soon (if nothing else I'll have them from our archive session mid-week next week) that I can post. The show looks great. We have ten performances over the next 10 days so the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland race isn't over... but at least we can see the finish line! And after all, if it is a "caucus" race, well then all have already won!
