CCAC Announces Ticket Sales for Production
The Clay County Arts Council has announced its first community theater event as the group moves beyond dinner theater. Tickets go on sale Saturday, Sept. 1, for the stage play “Alice in Wonderland” being produced in cooperation with Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Ill. CCAC organizers note the show has been adapted for local performers with a variety of roles for children. For the arts council, the show marks an increased effort to provide live theatre events.
Serving as directors are Quinton Mauldin and Abby Baker who have, over the course of a year, taken an active role in providing an avenue for stage performance in Clay County.
As explained on the new Clay County Arts Council website, the council shares, “with this initiative, our goal is to create an outlet for theatre in Clay County. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered and gain confidence to reach new heights in performance and in life’s journey, regardless of age. Learn more about our work by exploring the web site and renewing your membership in CCAC, Inc.”
The curtain will rise at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21, on the latest production. Two additional performances will be presented on Saturday, Sept. 22 with a matinee at 2:30 p.m. and the final performance at 7:30 that evening.
The production of “Alice in Wonderland” also marks a change for the CCAC, as they will offer three perforamnces for the first time ever.
Tickets go on sale Sept. 1, and may be purchased online through the secure payment portal at www.claycountyartscouncil.org Cast members and CCAC board members will also have tickets for sale, and all tickets are general admission and are $15 each.
Of course, Alice in Wonderland is the favorite tale of Alice and her crazy adventures with the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts who puts Alice on trial. The Caterpillar, the Dormouse, and, of course, the White Rabbit make an appearance.
“It’s a show the whole family can enjoy,” director Quinton Mauldin said of the show.
