UW Presents Free Children's Play Performance Oct. 30 in Laramie
Oct. 24, 2006 -- The University of Wyoming will present a free
performance of "Alicia in Wonder Tierra," at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30,
at the UW College of Education auditorium.
The play, originally featured at the 2006 Snowy Range Summer Theatre and Dance Festival, will be performed at several elementary schools statewide through Oct. 31.
Assistant Professor of Theatre and Dance Cecilia Aragon directs "Alicia in Wonder Tierra," a delightfully funny adventure loosely based on "Alice in Wonderland," with a touch of "The Wizard of Oz." The play charts the adventures of young Alicia on her magical journey from a Mexican curio shop to an Aztec temple as she comes to understand her cultural heritage.
"Alicia is a typical teenager who has not connected with her Mexican heritage," says Aragon. "She is very much in denial of her heritage. Her journey is about coming to terms with that background and what it means to her."
