Come See 'Alice in Wonderland'!

Come See 'Alice in Wonderland'!

Published: March 27, 2019

If you’ve been following the library’s programming, you’ll know that we’ve been showcasing dance through a partnership with Hickory Ballet and Performing Arts. In recent months, performances of The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty have been highlighted at all seven branches.

Beginning in April, we’re pleased to showcase the latest show: Alice in Wonderland. As with the previous ballets, the performances are interactive, encouraging children to get involved as Hickory Ballet tells the story of Alice as she tumbles down the rabbit hole.

The goal of the performances is to teach kids how to communicate through movement and to see how dance tells stories without words. Sharing the narrative of a classic novel is a plus as well!

Each Alice in Wonderland presentation will include an activity based on the story and is open to families and to people of all ages.

The three April performances will take place at the following locations:

  • Saturday, April 6 at 10 am at the Southwest Branch
  • Saturday, April 6 at 11 am at the Maiden Branch
  • Saturday, April 6 at 12:30 pm at the Conover Branch

Shows at the other four branch libraries will take place in May.
