MSU Campus Players presents 'Alice in Wonderland'

Minot State University's Campus Players presents “Alice in Wonderland” Dec. 9-11 in Aleshire Theater at 7:30 p.m.; the doors will open at 7 p.m. A matinee performance will be Dec. 12 at 2 p.m.; the doors will open at 1:30 p.m.

Campus Players will bring Lewis Carroll’s timeless tale of young Alice and her adventures in Wonderland to the Aleshire stage under the direction of MSU senior and Campus Players president Krys Zorbaugh.

“I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to combine my love of theatre with my affection for this classic story,” Zorbaugh said. “I fell in love with Carroll's tale of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ when I was five or six. It was probably my first introduction to nonsensical poetry and, to this day, it continues to inspire my imagination and perhaps, even causes me to see my world a little differently. To work with my peers in bringing to life all of the wonderful elements of such a classic is truly an honor."

Celebrating its 150th anniversary, Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” is the story of young Alice (Annika Kraft) who fatefully falls through a rabbit hole and finds herself immersed in a wondrously fantastic world of clever creatures and a hot-headed Queen of Hearts (Madison Curtiss.) Lopsided logic and poetry collide with curiosity to create a surreal dreamscape filled with imaginative possibilities.

Well known and beloved characters such as the White Rabbit (Krista Sipin), Cheshire Cat (Casey Feldner), Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum (Eric Fetske, Jaryn Homiston), Humpty Dumpty (Brenna Heupel), along with the Mad Hatter (Connor Donovan) and the March Hare (Amanda Mogen), the Red and White Queens (Rhianna Costiloe, Amanda Kraft) and more, all do their part to beguile, confuse, challenge and even guide Alice on her journey through Wonderland.

Campus Players is the oldest MSU student-run organization. Since 1923, Campus Players has promoted theatre arts through performance and community engagement.

This kid-friendly adaptation of “Alice in Wonderland” will delight audiences of all ages. Admission is $6 adults and $5 for seniors, students and children under 12. Reservations begin Wednesday (Nov. 25) and are strongly recommended. To make reservations, contact the Aleshire ticket box office at 858-3172.
