The Children’s Dance Theater will present its production of “Alice in Wonderland” at the Omak Performing Arts Center on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, 2 and 3.
The production will include several performers from the Methow Valley among the 67 dancers, as the theater company celebrates its 25th anniversary.
The story of Alice takes the audience on a wonderland adventure down the rabbit hole, where she encounters a strange collection of characters.
Alice is played by Kaylee Clough of Oroville and Maya Sheely of Twisp; the White Rabbit is played by Grace-Ann Kominak and Olivia Glenn, both of Twisp.
The Tweedle Twins are played by Mia Headlee and Chloe Peterson of Okanogan and Caroline Zoretic of Pateros. The Mad Hatter is played by Emma Alexander of Tonasket, the Cheshire Cat by Sam Shaffer of Twisp, and the Caterpillar by Katharine Zoretic of Pateros. The Red Queen played by Lyndzi Scott of Tonasket.
The performances are at 7 p.m. on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, and at 2 p.m. on Feb. 2 and Feb. 3. Tickets are $15 for adults, and $10 for students and seniors. Feb. 1 is family night — four tickets can be purchased for $40.
The Children’s Dance Theater was founded by Lorrie Fraley-Wilson in 1993. It is dedicated to the pursuit of dance and theater opportunities for children of Okanogan County. The first performance was “Cinderella Ballet” with roughly 55 dancers. Since then the theater has produced 30 shows.
