The all-original “Alice: The Rock Musical,” based on the “Alice in Wonderland” tale, will premiere on the weekend of July 12-14. Created by three of the founding members of Kirkland’s premier nonprofit music school, Kirkland Academy of Music and Performance, it features the best of their Community Musical Theater Program with an all-ages cast.
Director and creator Sue Heale says, “We’re thrilled to be writing our first full-length musical with this team since our wildly successful ‘Scrooge’ in 2015. Our community theater program is very unique, providing a venue for entire families to participate in musical theater together.”
Fellow creators are Joshua Sibley and Lambros Lambrou, and guest composer Joel Prinos from Lake Washington High assisted with violin parts.
This musical will be published by Chatwin Books of Seattle, along with Heale and Sibley’s other line of shows.
