There's no Alice here. In the summer of 2016, our audiences entered and explored a Wonderland like they've never seen before. reThink Theatrical created and presented the fully immersive world of WONDERLAND&YOU.
Mischief and madness made our audiences "curiouser and curiouser" as they explored The Rutgers Gardens in our outdoor experience. "Alices" had the power to choose their own adventure as they got up close and personal with the Mad Hatter's tea party, played croquet with the Queen of Hearts, and riddled their way out of trouble with the Cheshire Cat.
