[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Creating a version of Alice and Wonderland that will keep audiences already well versed with the story engaged and entertained is not easy, but Hebron Theatre’s Bravo production did just that, immersing the audience in a technicolor, pixilated world not unlike Disney’s Wreck it Ralph (2012). Director Tyler Brodess shared a new take on the classic down-the-rabbit-hole plot with the arcade-esque music, chunky Tetris-like foliage, and fun silhouetted transitions that were just as playful as the scenes they preceded.
Cast members shifted from amplified actions to perfectly insync ones as called for, like the scene between Tweedledee and Twedledum (Valentina Caballero and Rayan Moosa), and the chorus of Flower Girls (Samantha Droste, Reema Roy, Sabrina Gambini, Amanda Bonds, Alysha Panjwani and Alexis Geddie). It was a fun, bright show that encapsulated the imagination and wonder Lewis Carol constructed 150 years ago, and showcased it in a new, (neon) light.
