Alice in Wonderland Jr

Alice in Wonderland Jr was performed on the main stage of the Walnut Street Theatre, 825 Walnut Street on September 20 and 21 and can be seen again on September 27 and September 28.  Based on Lewis Carroll’s book and subsequent movies, the show abounds with teen-aged talent from 21 students of the Walnut Street Theatre School.  Keelin  Kelly begins the production as he  portrays the Cheshire Cat and narrates the tale.  The three Alices, Emily Gallagher, Alexis Gwynn (small Alice) and Gabriela Barrett (large Alice) crawl in and out of a rabbit hole after eating a cookie… a very clever on-stage device. Equally clever  is  the flower garden with an attitude…Alexa Liss portraying Rose, Madi Resnic  portraying Lily, Maggie McPherson portraying Petunia, Skylar Raye Noyes portraying Violet and Dominque Swift portraying Daisy.  Morgan Snowden portrays the Queen of Hearts with a very regal bearing but she proves no match for the astute  Alice. This captivating young cast performs over sixteen songs during the one hour performance. It is truly a delight to watch these young performers.  For more information or tickets, call 215-574-3550, 800-982-2787 or visit online at
