A marionette `Alice'

Best Bet

January 09, 2003|By Lori Sears

Don't be late for a very important date Sunday at Smith Theatre in Columbia. The National Marionette Theatre presents the classic tale Alice in Wonderland.

Detailed marionettes, modeled on the original book illustrations of artist John Tenniel, star as Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar, the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat and the other creatures in Wonderland.

Watch Alice follow the White Rabbit down the hole and into a magical land, and see her embark on many a curious adventure until her safe return to the meadows. The elaborate stage sets will change in front of the audience and function as part of the show.

The show, which is being presented twice on Sunday, is geared to children ages 4 and up. Presented by Candlelight Concerts.

"Alice in Wonderland" will be presented at 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday at Smith Theatre, Howard Community College, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia. $8 for all ages. Call 410-480-9950.
