CANNON BEACH — Go down the rabbit hole with a free, one-woman performance of “Alice in Wonderland” at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at Tolovana Hall in Cannon Beach.
All of Lewis Carroll’s indelible characters — including Alice, the Queen, Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter — will be channeled by Anne Rutherford, an award-winning storyteller and arts educator from Portland.
Rutherford’s ping-ponging among Wonderland’s wild points of view might seem daunting — if not downright mad — but Carroll’s story, after all, is about exploring what’s really possible. As Carroll wrote, “Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.”
Perhaps it’s fitting for a single performer to adapt and deliver this shapeshifting tale. As Alice herself says: “How puzzling all these changes are! I’m never sure what I’m going to be, from one minute to another.”
Presented by Tolovana Arts Colony, this show for familes and children of all ages is made possible by a grant from the City of Cannon Beach.
