About “Adventures in Wonderland”
Loosely inspired by Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, “Adventures in Wonderland” is Live Oak Theatre’s original interpretation of Alice’s story. Keeping with the Live Oak Tradition of providing positive theatrical experiences for the whole family, “Adventures in Wonderland” concentrates on the wonder of it all. This is Live Oak’s first musical theatre endeavor since the onset of the pandemic. Audiences will enjoy Acorn Theatre performers’ rendition of original songs such as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bat,” “Rabbit Hole,” and “Wonderland.”
About the Acorn Theatre
Probably the biggest announcement of 2020 is the launching of Live Oak’s Youth Theatre program for students ages 8-18. Entitled the Acorn Theatre, our performance class meets to rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00- 6:30. The class will run in 8 week periods with 6 performances at the end of each term. The Acorn Theatre will work together to produce and perform 3 shows each year as well as participate in Brooksville’s annual Tree Lighting.
The Acorn Theatre production team consists of rotating Directors/Instructors who are assisted by a team of apprentices in the areas of Stage Manager, Assistant Director, costumes, choreography, lighting, sound, music and set design. Parent volunteers are always welcomed in these areas as well.
Acorn Theatre apprentices are chosen from regular performers of Live Oak who have “grown up” on our stage. They assume leadership roles in the production and mentor the students of the Youth Theatre.
COVID SAFETY MEASURES
We have been carefully monitoring CDC guidelines since we opened for camp this summer. Temperatures are taken of anyone who enters the building. Hand sanitizer stations are set up throughout the building and we’ve been spraying down seats, ballet barres, bathrooms, doorknobs and just about everything else that can be sprayed on a regular basis.
For OUTDOOR performances, seating will be socially distanced according to each group’s reservation. Individual socially distanced seats are available, as well. We request that our audience wear masks when standing in line or going indoors. When seated in your socially distanced outdoor seating you may remove them if you prefer!
For INDOOR performances, seating will be socially distanced according to each group’s reservation. Individual socially distanced seats are available, as well. Masks will be required at all times while indoors for the duration of the show and while in line for dessert/coffee.
Due to the nature of socially distanced seating, and the limited ticket availability for each performance, all ticket reservations must be made no later than 48 hours in advance of each performance. Payments must also be made in advance either online, by mail or by dropping off a check at the box office.
