Venture down the rabbit hole. A theatrical event for the whole family, Quintessence’s special brand of imagination theatre will take you on a whirlwind adventure with Alice and allow you to escape the holiday madness in Wonderland. Bringing together the best professional actors and designers from Philadelphia and across the country, Artistic Director Alexander Burns leads this collective of artists on a mission to ignite the classics through visceral, actor-focused and text-driven productions.
A little girl named Alice is bored with being treated like a child and is ready to face the world on her own. When Alice’s curiosity leads her down a rabbit hole she falls into a topsy-turvy Wonderland. Can Alice figure out the logic of this new world and its inhabitants, and find her way home? Complete with original songs by Philadelphia musician David Cope, Quintessence is excited to continue building a new tradition of literary family classics for the holiday season. The design team includes costumes by Jane Casanave, lighting design by David Sexton and choreography by Kaki Burns.
