In this clever original story, two of literature’s most famous young ladies meet for the first time when Judson, a young student, puts off a book report till the last minute, then suddenly finds himself in a strange place somewhere between Oz and Wonderland! He becomes responsible for unscrambling the stories and steering the familiar characters (the Cowardly Lion, the Mad Hatter, the Scarecrow and the White Rabbit, among others) to their ultimate destinations…all while avoiding the Wicked Witch and the Red Queen! This hilarious, exciting adventure is filled with clever word-play, laughter and surprises at every turn and a couple of lessons emerge along the way.

The cast of “Dorothy Meets Alice” is comprised of the nine-member CRT Performing Intern Company.  Starring as Judson is Ithaca College student Christian Henry with Syracuse University student Stephanie Garofalo as Dorothy and Ball State student Amanda Walker as Alice.  Representing “Wonderland” are Syracuse University student Victoria Madden as the White Rabbit, Ithaca College student Jahmar R. Ortiz as The Mad Hatter and Boston University student Camden Garcia as the Dormouse.  From the Land of Oz comes Nazareth student Jacob Smith as the Scarecrow, Point Park student Ian Dominquez Ball as the Tin Man and SUNY Cortland student John Cavaseno as the Cowardly Lion.  Rounding out the cast are two local actresses, Rona Knobel as The Wicked Witch and Nancy Kane as the Red Queen. Mollie Heil  serves as Stage Manager, with Scenic Design created by Shelley Barish. Jimmy Johansmeyer serves as Costume Designer and CRT Master Electrician Brendan Reed creates the lighting design. Other technical work is provided by Andrew Carney as Props Designer, Seth Asa Sengel as Sound Designer, and Dana White Jr. as Technical Director.
