Youth Theatre Presents: Alice by Heart

May 25-26 at 2:00 pm.

Directed by Carmen Crussard  

From the Tony® and Grammy® award-winning creators of Spring Awakening, Steven
Sater and Duncan Sheik, and co-written by Jessie Nelson (Waitress), Alice by Heart is
a touching musical inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.    

In the rubble of the London Blitz of World War II, Alice Spencer’s budding teen life is
turned upside down, and she and her dear friend Alfred are forced to take shelter in
an underground tube station. When the ailing Alfred is quarantined, Alice encourages
him to escape with her into their cherished book and journey down the rabbit hole to

As they travel through the tale, Alice by Heart explores the poignancy of first love,
coming to terms with loss, and finding the courage to move forward. This world
premiere musical encourages us all to celebrate the transformational power of the
imagination, even in the harshest of times.
