Northern Virginia Players presents “Alice in Wonderland, Jr.”

Beginning May 17, the Northern Virginia Players will perform Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland, Jr.”

Join Alice's madcap adventures in Wonderland as she chases the White Rabbit, races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with the Tweedles, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game.

The fast-paced musical features updated dialogue and new arrangements of such classic Disney songs as "I'm Late," "The Un-birthday Song" and "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Da.”
