Alice (Erin Swisher of Lower Merion) is a very curious girl and is always wondering where her imagination will take her next. One day, she chases a White Rabbit (Victoria Donnelly of Havertown) down the rabbit hole and goes on an adventure like no other. While exploring, she meets the Mad Hatter (Scott Berkowitz of Havertown), a dancing Caterpillar (Bethlehem Antoine of Upper Darby) and even escapes the grip of the Queen of Hearts (Anna Rudegeair of Ardmore). As Alice meets one zany character after another, she discovers many important things about herself.
