    Contact: Gail Stokes   401-781-6116   gstokes@cranstonlibrary.org
   

Auburn hosts Hampstead Stage Company's production of Lewis Carroll's immortal classic, Alice in Wonderland, a wonderful tale of a young girl whose boredom takes her on a journey of imagination. Through Alice's travels, everyday things become extraordinary. The words on the page come alive as she recites The Jabberwocky and learns how to overcome her own fears. Through this story, we hope to encourage children to enjoy using their imagination, triumph over their fears, and find magical things right in their own backyard.
