PR Productions invites children and families alike to follow them to a bizarre, backwards world found only down the rabbit hole. 

Performances of “Alice in Wonderland,” adapted for the stage by director Christine Roe,  are Aug. 16 to 18 at the Historic Sandwich Opera House, 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich. 

The performances are at 7 p.m. Aug. 16 and 17, and at 2 p.m. on Aug. 18. Tickets cost $8 and can be purchased at, by calling 888-395-0797 or at the door, based on availability. 

The play, which is appropriate for all ages, brings everything you know about the classic tale to life – Alice, the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter and every other denizen of Wonderland all make their mark.

“Alice in Wonderland” was first published in 1865 by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, under the pseudonym Lewis Carrol.

The story itself has been adapted thousands of times and even inspired the popular Disney film of the same name. 

The production features Annie Shirley in the title role of Alice, Abbey Lippert as the White Queen and Tari Jansen as the Red Queen.

The cast also features Ashley Cross, Trey Ambrose, Madison Johnson, Caitlyn Roe, Sam Leake, Riley Jansen, Clare Smith, Nate Leake and Macie Jansen.
