Alice & Wonderland: A Rock Opera

Newmark Theatre (map) Downtown
Saturdays, 5 p.m. and Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Nov. 21 2010

$13-26

Given the company's name, you'd think the target audience for an Oregon Children's Theatre production would be easy to identify. But OCT's current production of Alice & Wonderland leaves the matter in some doubt. Based on Richard Rosen and Wink Kelso's 1973 rock opera, OCT's version excises the original's adult themes, leaving a classic rock-influenced soundtrack to score Alice's tumble down the rabbit hole. But the result has neither character development nor narrative continuity, only a string of songs loosely strung between a handful of Alice in Wonderland's signposts. ALISON HALLETT
