Imagine a world where things happen backwards like putting on a band aid before you get cut or where flowers can talk as well as Humpty Dumpty, and where Tweedledee and Tweedledum can sing a cool rap song- It happens!… all during Alicia’s journey into Wonderlandia.
The Pharr Community Theater’s newest, bilingual, children’s play, Alicia, written by Elaine Romero and directed by Juan Guerra is a delightful tale your kids will not want to miss. This one-act play, produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. and co sponsored by the City of Pharr and PSJA-ISD, has a cast of 13 local kids who have been rehearsing since late May. “I am pleased with all the talent we have here” said Guerra. Sometimes I can’t keep from laughing and enjoying the creative antics these kids come up with, to make the play better, and the fact that they are smooth in both English and Spanish as the play was written.
Predominately told in English, playwright Elaine Romero gives the story a Latino/American flavor in the setting and in the language. Inspired by the works of Lewis Carol who wrote the original ‘Alice in Wonderland’, “this tale will surely delight RGV audiences, kids and adults alike,” said Artistic director and co-producer, Pedro Garcia.
The play will run from July 13 through July 20 at the Pharr Community Theater, 213 W Newcombe Ave. Pharr, TX. Tickets are priced low for everyone to attend; $5 general admission and $3 kids under 13. Seating is limited to 55 persons per show and tickets will be available one hour prior to each curtain on a first come first serve basis. Showtimes are Thurs-Sat & Mon-Tues at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 3:00 pm. Fore more information please call 956-750-1282 or 956-655-9308.
