About the show:

On a perfect summer day in the park, Alice daydreams while her sister Mathilda lectures from a book and children play games nearby. A White Rabbit suddenly hurries past Alice, who follows him to the edge of his hole, anxious to know where he is going. She ponders Mathilda’s advice before jumping into the dark tunnel and encountering many strange creatures on the long way down.
