Students will go from auditions to performance in just five days with Compass Creative Dramatics, a Chicago-based touring theatre who will be hosting a week-long theatre residency at the Academy. Students in grades 1 – 12 will stretch their creativity and bravery muscles through daily rehearsals for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Students also perform alongside two professional actors during the week and will participate in acting classes from those directors in the afternoon! No acting experience necessary – just come ready to be silly and have fun! 

About the show: When she wakes from her tumble down the rabbit hole, Alice can't believe her eyes: conversations with a caterpillar, races with dodos, and a picnic thrown by a mad court of playing cards turn Alice's world on its head. Uncertain of her place in this foreign world of shrinking potions and never-ending tea parties, Alice confides in a wise Cheshire Cat, who helps her discover that it's not where we go in the world, but the things we do there that define us.
