Review: SWEENEY TODD at Signature Theatre

Tickets are now available for Alice in Wonderland, which runs May 6 & 7 at Traveling Players Studio in Tysons Corner Center. Performed by Traveling Players students in grades 5-7, the play is a new imagining of Carroll's classic daydream, a perfect spring outing for the whole family!

In this imaginative adaptation, a group of actors are about to perform Alice in Wonderland, but they are missing the actor playing Alice. Luckily, they find a girl named Alice backstage! This cast of intrepid thespians lead Alice down the rabbit hole and through an unusual place called "Wonderland" where she will encounter Lewis Carroll's most iconic storybook characters: White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts, & one crazy cook!

Actors auditioned in February and have been rehearsing every weekend under the direction of Emma Mearns along with Assistant Director, Rae Mearns. The design team also features student Set Designer, Elise Robertson, who has been part of Traveling Players' Technical Theatre Apprenticeship program for 4 years. Also on the design team are Morgan Shotwell (props), Judith Harmon (costumes), Rae Mearns (lights), and founder Jeanne Harrison (Producing Artistic Director).

The cast includes the talents of Ina Dufault (McLean, VA), Charlotte Eastright (Washington, D.C.), Natalie Tousi (Potomac, MD), Sophie Adolphs (Vienna, VA), James Cronin (Springfield, VA), Ray French (Vienna, VA), Surina Hare (McLean, VA), V Moore (Vienna, VA), Aila Simkiss (Arlington, VA), and Sydney Tregoning (McLean, VA).

Review: THE CRUCIBLE at Eisenhower Theater

What did our critic think of THE CRUCIBLE at Eisenhower Theater? Choreographer Helen Pickett does in her ballet The Crucible just exactly what Arthur Miller attempted in his 1953 play, her source. Both try to make a new language to express the Salem witch trials of 1692 because those events were too extraordinary for regular English or garden-variety ballet.

Review: SWEENEY TODD at Signature Theatre
