Roles are plentiful, including three Cheshire Cats and dozens of other wonderfully wacky characters.

"Alice in Wonderland Jr." is a fast-paced stage adaptation of featuring updated dialogue and new arrangements of such classic Disney songs as "I'm Late," "The Un-birthday Song" and "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah."
