ALICE IN WONDERLAND FOLLIES! — What a jumble of jollification. Follow Alice down the rabbit hole for an hour-long dance adventure March 17 at 7 p.m. at the Carson Center in Paducah, Ky. The “Alice-in-Wonderland Follies,” based upon Lewis Carroll’s famous stories “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through The Looking Glass” is presented as a series of vignettes in a vaudeville setting (New York, circa 1915). This eclectic ballet draws on many different dance forms — from Irish Step Dancing to African Juba to classical ballet. The musical score is a collage of styles from Ragtime to American ballads to turn-of-the 20th Century popular song. Join the renowned New York Theatre Ballet for a zany potpourri of dance and music and follow Alice’s adventures through Wonderland as she meets some of the most beloved characters in children’s literature. This performance is part of the Eckstein Family Series. Tickets for adults are $15 and tickets for students ages 18 and younger are $7.50. Tickets can be purchased at the Carson Center Box office, by phone at (270) 450-4444 or online at www.thecarsoncenter.org.
