A Theatre Group and Silverton Summer Youth Program offer summer entertainment
It’s through the looking glass with “Alice in Wonderland,” featuring the Silverton Summer Youth Program, opening on Wednesday, July 29, and playing through Saturday, Aug. 1.
Adapted for the youth of Silverton by Mollie Mook-Fiddler, and directed by Felicia Marti, “Alice in Wonderland” tells of a girl’s surreal adventure into the whimsical and strange realm of her own imagination.
The cast features the youth of Silverton, including Marley Roberts as Alice, Nathaniel Hoskin as the White Rabbit and Hanna Dekay as the Cheshire Cat.
A Theatre Group’s Children's Theatre and Arts Camp participants are seen in the cast both in familiar roles and in new roles such as: Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, three Potion Making Skunks, a Haiku-loving Cheshire Cat, and many more.
Amber Moffet and Luke Sorge, (recent graduates of theatre program at University of Colorado Denver) appear in the production as the Queen of Hearts and the newly added Narrator. Also completing the cast are four belly-dancing community members painted green to make up one very soulful Caterpillar.
This magical and whimsical tale is appropriate for all ages.

“Los Once” is a work of empathy inspired by both the determination and resolve and the deaths of eleven men and women who left their homes and families in El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and Nicaragua to try to find low wage work in the United States. As a work for stage, the piece weaves theatrical realism, song, movement and music together to form a dramatization of the crossing of the eleven human beings into the United States while also implicating various other individuals within the events of their journey.
