Smart Bets: Alice in Wonderland

Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre celebrates 35 years of modern dance while the New Studio of Dance marks its 45th anniversary of dance education. The local artistic strongholds commemorate those milestones with a performance of Alice in Wonderland. “You may already know Alice, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts, but how long has it been since you’ve heard the story of the duchess and her pig/child?” asks a press release. “This dance theater production will bring you back to the book where it all started, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” The production runs at BeBe Theatre, Fridays and Saturdays, May 23 & 24 and 30 & 31, at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays, May 25 and June 1, at 3 p.m. $15 advance/$17 at the door; $10/$12 for students and seniors.
