Alice In Wonderland - Ballet Idaho
On the occasion of Alice Kingsley's 15th birthday, the Hadmatter family, friends of the Kingsleys, are hosting a ball in Alice's honor. Already uneasy with social occasions, things become worse when her older bossy sister, Quendleheart, forces herself on Hatwin Hadmatter, the older of the two Hadmatter sons and secret sweetheart of Alice, leaving her to his obnoxious younger brother, Redford. Things go downhill from there, quite literally, for Alice: A top hat appears out of nowhere, containing an invitation to a tea party; a white rabbit follows; a wild tumble down the rabbit hold ends in a hall of doors; a magic garden; twins, a caterpillar and an illusive Cheshire cat; a white king and queen with chess pieces as their court; a duchess baking tarts; a mad hatter with strange company; a conspiracy to overthrow the red queen and king; an army of marching playing cards' a rigged croquet game; theft, betrayal, war and fearsome dragon of the Jabberwocky kind. Alice finds herself in the midst of this wild, strange and adventurous journey, ultimately taming the Jabberwocky with a stolen tart and becoming the queen of wonderland. When she returns to the ball, things have changed in her favor: she is dancing with her secret sweetheart Hatwin, who confesses his love for her. The ball goes on and Alice is happy indeed to be there!
