3.11_alice_postcard_front_Final-page-0This year marks the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland and Stone Soup Theatre is delighted to present a bewildering and fascinating texture of his story; half adventure, half chop-logic and shrewd caricature. Everyone is familiar with Alice’s antic adventures – but here we have an interesting difference that will delight the young and the young at heart. An Alice for all ages.

Director, Gordon Coffey, leads a brilliant ensemble cast, including Sara Kaus, Stephanie Couch, Lillian Afful, Brittany Menzies, Vero Lecocq, Chad Oswald, and Adam Fisher.

The performance runs Friday – Saturday evenings at 7:30pm and from April 10 – May 3, with Saturday Sunday matinees at 3pm, $12.50 previews on April 8 and 9. General admission prices are $15-$25, $20 for seniors. All Thursdays after preview are Pay-What-You-Will.

Arne Zaslove’s response to Stone Soup’s Production:

There is a fine production of Alice in Wonderland currently playing at the little gem of a storefront theater Stone Soup on Stone Way.  Don’t miss it as it’s one of a kind…an ensemble of fine young actors, all deeply committed to the Alice 3brilliant language of Lewis Carrol’s masterpiece of the Theater of the Absurd, long before it was a style dubbed in the ‘60’s.

Gordon Coffey, a veteran director and theater artist, who was one of the founding members of the original Seattle Rep, has guided a group of talented young performers through the Wonderland of this classic tale.  Every member of the tight ensemble plays several parts, and excels in all of them.

It is a treat to see this piece originally created by Andre Gregory in the ‘60’s for his rebellious company of alternative theater actors. I actually saw that original production at NYU when I had recently returned from Paris, …and the Stone Soup Production is equally faithful to the Lewis Carrol masterpiece.   Don’t’ miss it!


A Child’s Christmas in Wales & The Long Christmas Dinner

December 5 – December 5, 2014

A Child's Christmas in Wales 2011

Directed by Buddy Todd

Journey to both sides of the pond with two short plays this holiday season. Travel to Wales and celebrate the joy of memories and family, then return to the States with an American Christmas and beloved playwright, Thornton Wilder.

One of the most enduring, yet oft-forgot holiday memoirs, Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales comes to life, for the 9th season, at Stone Soup Theatre, recreating the nostalgic times of Thomas’ childhood Christmas when everything was brighter, better, and more alive. Share Dylan Thomas’ holiday memories and bring back a few of your own in this holiday classic perfect for the entire family.

The Long Christmas Dinner is a human, tender play that journeys the lives of several generations of the Bayard family, and some of their Christmas dinners. Spanning 90 years and several generations, this story is lightened with humor of character, and contains a moving quality that is both appealing and forceful. Author, Thornton Wilder, is best known for the hit play, Our Town.

Each year, our production of A Child’s Christmas in Wales is different because of the sensibilities of a new director: this production is directed by Buddy Todd. So, for those who make Stone Soup their holiday destination (we have an added treat with Thornton Wilder) or those who have not seen Wales in few years – Christmas Dinner is a great reason to come see Wales again. The production begins with a $12.50 preview on December 4 at 7:30pm and runs through December 24th. Showtimes are as follows: 7:30 performances on all Fri/Sat evenings; 2pm matinees on Sun afternoons (except 12/21); 12/21 & 12/24 performances are at 12:30pm and 4pm; and Mon & Tues, 12/22 – 12/23 performances are at 7:30pm. Ticket prices are $25 for a single ticket, $20 for matinees, seniors, and groups of 4 or more.

Tickets are available for purchase by phone at the Stone Soup Box Office at (206) 633-1883 or at www.brownpapertickets.com, 800-838-3006.
