Outlandish creatures and quizzical conversations fill the stage as Alchemy Theatre presents one of the most imaginative tales ever written, Alice in Wonderland, performing from December 8 to 18 at Vancouver’s Studio 1398 Theatre.
This visually stunning production combines the best moments and characters from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.
The stellar cast of 11 will bring to life over 50 characters from the magical world of Wonderland.
Annie Arbuckle stars as the curious and charming Alice, who, after leaving her own colourless world, finds Morgan Misic who burrows her way into the character of the White Rabbit. Kyle Wipp as the Mad Hatter and Ann-Marie Zak as the March Hare put the party back in tea party as they serve up their interpretations of the beloved characters.
Connor M. Styles is all smiles as the Cheshire Cat and Tweedledee while Sarah Holden will have you cracking up during her portrayal of Humpty Dumpty and the Duchess. Charlotte Wright can barely keep her head while playing the iconic Queen of Hearts and Matthew McCarron doesn’t know which way is up as the King of Hearts, the Caterpillar and Tweedledum.
Sophia Valentine gets lost in her role as the White Queen, Meghan Nordquist finds joy in the roles of the Gryphon and Dodo and finally, Tiffany Markwart squeaks her way into everyone’s heart as the Doormouse.
To top it off, the cast will also perform as various animals and cards from the Queen of Hearts’ deck of card cavalry!

About Alchemy Theatre
Alchemy Theatre is an innovative, emergent theatre group, the amalgamation of the talents and dedication of a group of young performers from across the Lower Mainland. After forming in 2014, Alchemy Theatre staged summer theatre productions of Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Taming of the Shrew at the Bernie Legge Theatre. After presenting the critically acclaimed Agnes of God at the Pal Studio Theatre and the hilarious 3-man show of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Abridged at the Columbia Theatre, Alchemy is now venturing back into Vancouver to debut on Granville Island with Alice in Wonderland.
