AXCBT presents ALICE IN WONDERLAND
TICKETS: Premium Adult $54; Regular Adult $48; Premium Senior $46; Regular Senior $40; Students $26
A young girl sits by a riverbank on a warm summer day, drowsily reading over her sister’s shoulder when she catches sight of a white rabbit in a waistcoat. This jumpstarts a fun, whimsical adventure in which Alice, Lewis Carroll’s famously curious ingenue, meets a cast of extraordinary characters, from the fierce Queen of Hearts and the bubbly Mad Hatter, to the funny Cheshire Cat and the mysterious Caterpillar. With an imaginative, eye-popping digital-projection landscape that will transport audiences into Wonderland, this new ballet from the Axelrod Contemporary Ballet Theater will be told through the dazzling, imaginative choreography of Gabriel Chajnik and a live orchestra conducted by Jason Tramm.
Ocean Township, NJ (Tuesday, August 6, 2019) – To celebrate the debut of Axelrod Contemporary Ballet Theatre’s newest production, Alice in Wonderland, the Axelrod is hosting a “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” for parents and children on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 5:15 PM before the start of the 7 PM performance.
The event is open to patrons who purchase an adult and child ticket combo. The tea party will feature light fare food and tea, a photo opportunity with costumed dancers from the cast, as well as face painting to give the children a special “look” for the party.
“This is a fun, wonderful opportunity for parents to introduce their children to the magical world of theater and dance,” said the Ballet’s Board President Elise Feldman. “Every child has creative potential, and recent studies by the National Endowment for the Arts show that exposure to the arts (visual/music/dance) can positively contribute to a young child’s social and emotional skills.”[i]
