Oh man, screw it.
The truth is that falling into Alice's rabbit hole will always be one of the greatest dreams every child has. Lucky enough though, Repertory Philippines is generous enough to let us have a quick fall into the most profound hole ever known to man. And here is a list on why Repertory Philippines' own Alice in Wonderland is something you would love to fall into.
5. Colorful production
Even those who claim to be old enough for the colors baby pink and light blue would surely be endeared by the colorful production of Repertory Philippines' Alice in Wonderland. Even though the colorful backdrops and props are spectacles of their own, they have also highlighted the actors' superb performance rather than concealing them. Sure enough, they know how to play well with their pastels.
4. Excellent musical scoring

3. Faithful adaptation of the book
The theatrical adaptation of Repertory Philippines remained faithful to Lewis Carroll's orginal novel. Just like in other literary masterpieces, each and every scene in Alice in Wonderland is a vital factor to the entire story itself, no matter how shallow it may seem. Actually, Alice in Wonderland is mostly deemed as the best example of a literary non-sense; the abundance of literary and contextual sense within a story, so there is absolutely no point in saying that a single act in the story is a mere garnish.
2. Bituin Escalante
Bituin Escalante is tailor-made for the role of the Queen of Hearts. If you are not startled by how she screams the ever famous line "Off with her head!" then it is either you are stonehearted or that you have already fallen unconscious out of fear.
5. No need to fall into a literal hole... or to fly
Let us face it, even though Alice has made falling into a hole cool and hippie, it will mean bruises and broken bones in real life, and of course, it is rather impossible that you will fall into the exact mad world she has fallen into. And most importantly, booking tickets to Disneyland will make the fall costy!
Repertory Philippines' theatrical adaptation of Lewis Carroll is the kind of Wonderland our parents told us about, comic, dynamic, musical and majestic. Fall into the rabbit hole and witness the bizarre world of Wonderland, right in front of your very eyes!
The production will run until December 15, 2013 at Onstage Theater, Greenbelt 1. Visit Repertory Philippines' newly launched website http://repertoryphilippines.com/ for more information and call Ticketworld at 891-9999 or visit http://www.ticketworld.com.ph/ for ticket prices and reservations.
