The Wizard of Wonderland
by Joseph Robinette

Directed by Sonia Arnold

A production by the BLT Youth Troupe

Comedy/adventure with family-friendly performance times and ticket prices!

Two of literature's most unforgettable young ladies and their companions get mixed
together in this delightful two-act play.  Because of an unfinished book report by young
student Justine, Dorothy magically meets Alice somewhere between Oz and Wonderland,
with hilarious results.  The audience becomes reacquainted with a cast of familiar characters
from the enduring stories of The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland.  The Cowardly Lion,
White Rabbit, Tin Man, Mad Hatter, Scarecrow, Dormouse, Red Queen, Witch and others
appear in a new light.
 Caution: Pre-school children may be frightened by some of the

This adventuresome romp is filled with laughter and surprises at every turn--and a couple of
valuable lessons emerge as well. It’s fun and fanciful fantasy at its finest. As the two girls
would say, "Wiz you were Hare!"
