CYT Chicago: DuPage Presents...

In this modern pop-rock take on Alice in Wonderland, we meet Alice Liddell, a seventeen-year-old at Lutridge Academy. Pressured by teachers and parents to draw up a ten-year life plan for her final grade, Alice ditches school to meet her idol Delilah, a rock queen with Alice’s idea of a perfect life. In pursuit of a meeting with Delilah, she falls down the rabbit hole. Bright, modern and splashy, this version of the Alice tale connects the strange happenings of Wonderland to her real world as she explores the adolescent frustration of “What am I going to do with my life?”
