Tickets are available to purchase online at showtix4u.com/event-details/64791, and will be available at the door, as available.

Hafermann shared, “The musical Alice in the City is about a young girl who seeks adventure by choosing to go down the rabbit hole of the New York City subway where she learns about bravery, hope, kindness, and forgiveness, while discovering the strength inside of her to make choices that will enable her to grow into a confident young woman.”

A special preview of Alice In The City will be staged on Thursday, May 12, at 3:15 pm for local senior citizens. The play is being staged in the school’s auditorium, 11 Queen Street, and complimentary hot tea, coffee, finger foods, and desserts will be provided for seniors in the school’s cafeteria ahead of the performance.
