ABOUT THE SHOW:
One hundred and fifty years after Lewis Carroll wrote about Wonderland, a young woman named Lacie discovers an impossible family secret: it's all real. And even curiouser, she may be Alice herself. She travels to Wonderland, books in tow as her guide, in search of her sister who disappeared years ago. There, she meets a teenage boy named Charlie who's been imprisoned by the Queen of Hearts. When she realizes that Charlie grows up to be Lewis Carroll, it's clear that the laws of our world no longer apply. Now, Lacie must rescue Charlie and her sister, and find a way for all of them to escape through the looking glass back to where they belong. Otherwise, Charlie may never grow up to write the books, and without the clues they hold, Lacie and her sister may get trapped in Wonderland forever.
Lacie --- (F) Teenage girl from present day. Fairly smart. Sometimes impulsive. A good person who will be tempted to do bad things to protect her family.
Charlie --- (M) Teenage boy from 1850 London. Thinks he's the smartest thing ever, not as brave as he could be. But loyal to his promises.
Rabbit/Harry --- (M) The White Rabbit from Wonderland. Nervous, quick, fearful of the Queen; has a good heart. Someone who did some bad stuff in the past and is trying to make it right.
Hattie --- (F) The Mad Hatter; and Lacie's missing sister. She's gone mad from being trapped in this place. She's confused, but not dumb.
The March Hare --- (M or F) Hattie's only friend in Wonderland. Fond of manners, distrusting of strangers.
Queen of Hearts --- (F) The current queen of Wonderland. She loves power. Rules with an iron fist. Nice as can be... if she likes you; otherwise it's "off with your head." Will not tolerate disobedience.
Cheshire Cat --- (M or F) Mischievous, aloof, and mysterious. Appears now and then along the journey as a guide, though not always a helpful one. Can't be sure whose side the Cheshire Cat is really on.
The White Queen --- (F) One of the former queens of Wonderland; the oldest. She's wise, whimsical, and can remember the future.
The Red Queen --- (F) Former queens of Wonderland; lost her throne in the last war of Wonderland. She is feisty, calculating.

Tweedledum --- Twin to Tweedledee. Childlike; everything is a game.
Tweeledee --- Twin to Tweedledum. Very much like Tweedledum; they're kind of one person split in two.

The Lion --- Loyal to the Queen of Hearts.
The Unicorn --- Loyal to the Red and White Queens.
