Aug. 24. Fans of Alice can prepare to enter the fantasy of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: An Immersive Experience” on the campus of Pioneer Springs Community School in Charlotte.

ACTivate Community through Theatre artistic director Wrenn Goodrum has conceived the immersive experience and adapted the script from the book by Lewis Carroll.

Up to 16 audience members per Alice—in this production there are four Alices —must make a choice to follow Alice either through The Garden Adventure or The Forest Adventure.

As the show is an outdoor experience, be sure to have bug spray and sunscreen handy.

The Garden Adventure will guide you from the Duchess and the Cook, Humpty Dumpty, the Gardeners and the Flowers, before navigating an incline to walk down into the Hatter’s Tea Party.  Viewers will find places to rest in and around the school, including its garden.

The Forest Adventure will encounter the Cheshire Cats, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, The Caterpillar Diva and the Gryphon and Mock Turtle, all on a path through the forest near a pond.  This trip will have no seating along the way.

Each journey winds up at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, where a cookie and beverage will be served.

Audiences will have a chance to play croquet with The Queen, King and Knave of Hearts. In the grand finale, everyone will witness Alice’s trial.
