There are two more weekends to treat yourself and the kids to  Alice in Wonderland, brought to life as part of the Bethpage Federal Credit Union Youth Theater Series at Northport’s Engeman Theater, from now through May 5, 2013. This adaptation has many modern additions in the “Gangnam Style” and delights everyone with amusing twists and non-stop action.

The heart of the original classic story written by Lewis Carrol is mixed with popular culture in this adaptation. Everyone recalls the journey of the young Alice who falls down a rabbit hole when following a rabbit. “I’m late, I’m late, the Queen will have my head,” notes the rabbit over and over. Is this place a dream or is it reality? wonders Alice, who wishes she had never followed that rabbit down the rabbit hole.

All the familiar characters come to life on the Engeman stage: the Cheshire Cat who won’t stop grinning, played by Jennifer Collester Tully, a regular performer at Engeman Theater; The Mad Hatter,  played by Adam Mosebach, who previously appeared in A Christmas Carol, 42nd Street, and A Wonderful Life; The White Rabbit, played by Hans Paul Hendrickson who returns to Engeman after playing Peter in Pinkalicious; and the Queen of Hearts, played by Suzanne Mason who makes her Engeman debut.

Some familiar and beloved Broadway songs are also woven into the show, such as “Friendship” from Anything Goes, and “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better” from Annie Get Your Gun, a hilarious rendition performed by Tweedle Dee, played by Evan Teich, and Tweedle Dum, played by Paul Velutis. Both return to the Engeman stage. Teich was last seen in A Christmas Carol and as Horton in Seussical. Velutis was police officer 1 in Wait Until Dark.

With the right kind of curiousity to follow the path, Alice, who finds everyone to be very rude, is played by Brittany Lacey who makes her Engeman debut.

Alice in Wonderland has the following performance schedule: Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. and Sundays at 10:30 a.m. through May 5, 2013.

Tickets are NOW ON SALE and are $15, and may be purchased by calling (631) 261-2900, by visiting www.engemantheater.com, or at the Engeman Theater Box Office at 250 Main Street, Northport.
