Fourteen-year-old Alice does not want to be an adult, especially because she feels it is being forced upon her. When her older sister Lorina asks her to grow up she responds with, “Why would I want to do that?” Perhaps Alice is right. According to her, adulthood is boring, tedious, and unimaginative. When she meets a series of absurd characters at Lewis C. Wonder High School, her maturity is tested. Perhaps an ability to deal with disappointment, sadness, and fear is just as important as retaining a youthful playfulness. Can Alice stay young at heart and still grow up? Can You?
Doors for this event open at 2:30 p.m. A question and answer session with the actors and director will follow the show. Refreshments will be served. The play is free to the public. The Montana Repertory Theatre’s performance at the Library is sponsored by the Friends of the Lewistown Public Library.
