PORTALES—Eastern New Mexico University's Department of Theatre and Dance will present their first mainstage production of the season, "Alice in Wonderland," on Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 12–14.
The show, located in the University Theatre Center, begins at 7 p.m. each night. General admission tickets cost $8, seniors 55+ $7, pre-college students $6, and ENMU students $5. The box office is open from 12–5 p.m., and also at 6 p.m. on performance nights.
"The show will be very entertaining and family friendly; we use puppetry," director Joseph Sanders said.
The play tells Lewis Carroll's story, but is adapted for the stage by Eva La Gallienne and Florida Friebus. The production will be one of the largest ENMU has created in several years, with very elaborate sets and costumes, according to Sanders.
"It's a story that stands the test of time," Sanders said, "The best part of the process was allowing our adult minds to play like children again."
