The subject is Wonderland — a new Alice, a new Musical — one of Frank Wildhorn's most compelling musical scores. Wildhorn's spin on the classic characters turns the Cheshire Cat into a samba dancing El Gato; the white knight appears with his Boy Band, and the Mad Hatter is a jazzy alto maniac out to destroy all of Wonderland. Divorced, single mother Alice is a struggling writer, and only her daughter, Chloe, seems to remember the wonder that can exist in the world.
In this exciting, one-night-only production, Monte Vista High School’s award-winning show choir, "Sound Odyssey,” is joined on the PowPAC stage by adult performers Alisha Kassel, Benjamin Henson, Ryan Burtanog, Heather Rager (Cowgirls, A Body of Water, Love Letters) and Sarah LeClair Klacka (Cowgirls, Don't Dress for Dinner), with special guest 11-year-old Grace Klacka, as Alice's daughter Chloe.
“Sound Odyssey” has earned the Heritage Festival Gold Rating, Adjudicators Award and Maestro Award and, additionally, was awarded Southern California Invitational’s Best Female Soloist, Best Male Soloist and Audience Favorite. This is a golden opportunity to hear wonderful music performed by the stars of the future.
