The Santa Monica College Theatre Arts Department is pleased to present Alice v. Wonderland: Trials Through the Looking Glass! July 22-31 in the Theatre Arts Main Stage on the main SMC campus, 1900 Pico Blvd.

The original musical production — written by Gary Fritzen and Terrin Adair, inspired by the works of Lewis Carroll — takes Alice back through the looking glass to stand trial for her misdeeds in the nonsensical, whimsical world of Wonderland. The play brings to life Lewis Carroll’s beloved books and characters. The SMC production is directed by Terrin Adair-Lynch, with music direction by Gary Gray.

Show times are 7 p.m. on Friday, July 22 and July 29, and Saturday, July 23 and July 30. Matinees are at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 24 and July 31.

Advance (pre-sale) tickets, which range from $10 to $20 ($15 for SMC students and staff) plus a modest service charge, can be purchased online at at any time, or by calling 310-434-4319 Monday through Thursday. Children’s tickets can ONLY be purchased by calling (310) 434-4319. Tickets purchased on performance weekends at the Events Box Office (at the Theatre Arts building) are $3 higher. Parking is free.
