The faculty and staff production of "Alice in Wonderland," one of Meredith College’s oldest and most loved traditions, takes place this week. Performances will be held Friday, Jan. 20, 2012, and Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012, at 8 p.m. in Jones Auditorium.
Once every four years, faculty and staff perform Meredith’s special version of the Lewis Carroll classic. The tradition began in 1924. Details about the cast are kept secret, and students love to guess who will play each part.
"Alice" memorabilia is now on display in Johnson Hall. .
The Friday and Saturday performances are reserved for current students only. Alumnae, faculty and staff are invited to attend dress rehearsal on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2012 at 8 p.m.
Doors open at 7 p.m. for each performance, and seats are first come, first served.
