Meet Alice This August!

It's back to my favorite time of Repertory Philippines' season! Repertory Philippines’ Theatre for Young Audiences (AKA Children's Theatre) which was started by Ms. Joy Virata, had its first production in 1992 featuring "Sleeping Beauty."

Even though I'm all grown up, these shows bring out my young heart and fun childhood memories which is fun to reminisce.

In celebration of its 21st year of producing well-loved musicals for children of all ages, Repertory Philippines’ Theatre for Young Audiences proudly announces its 2013 offering with the staging of "Alice in Wonderland."
"Alice in Wonderland" is set to open on August 17, 2013 and will run until December 15, 2013 at Onstage, 2/F, Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas cor. Legazpi St., Makati City.

For over 150 years, "Alice in Wonderland" has captivated children with its timeless and whimsical story written by Lewis Caroll. The classic tale is now re-told in an enchanting adaptation with book and lyrics by Jim Eiler. Music is also by Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy.

With toe-tapping lively music and highly-spirited dance numbers, "Alice in Wonderland" follows Alice through the looking glass and down the rabbit hole in a whirlwind of twists and turns through an enchanting Wonderland. In this whimsical fantastic journey, Alice meets all of Wonderland's famous and popular residents brought to life with full flair and color including: the King & Queen of Hearts, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Gryphon, Mock Turtle, Dormouse, Mad Hatter and March Hare, the Dutchess, Cheshire Cat and of course, the White Rabbit, and a whole world of characters for the audience to enjoy.
