WCU LIVE!, in a collaboration with the Greater Ocean City Theatre Company’s Touring Theatre Troupe, presents the Summer Children’s Series at the Madeleine Wing Adler Theater of West Chester University. The Show will begin at 10:30am on Saturday July 27, 2013. Tickets for the performance are $10.00 and can be purchased online by clicking here or by visiting www.tickets.wcupa.edu.

About the show

Two of literature’s most unforgettable young ladies get mixed up together in a magical meeting that produces hilarious results as the audience becomes reacquainted with a cast of familiar characters and sees them in a new light: the Cowardly Lion, the White Rabbit, the Tin Man, the Mad Hatter, the Scarecrow, the Dormouse, the Queen and the Witch from those enduring classics The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. This fun-filled romp follows Alice and Dorothy and their coteries as they try to unscramble their stories with the help of a contemporary young lad who started the whole thing to begin with when he put off a book report until the very last minute. Dorothy Meets Alice is a fun and fanciful fantasy at its finest. As the two girls would say, “Wiz you were Hare!”
