Quincy University’s Theatre Department will be performing the play “Alice in Wonderland” on May 2 in MacHugh Theatre.
The version being performed was written by director Connie Phillips. It was previously performed at the Quincy Community Theatre over 15 years ago with a cast of all children.
The show features the storyline of a little girl, Alice, who ends up lost in a mystical land and meets a wide array of unique characters. The show will feature original dialogue and music written by Phillips. The part of Alice will be played by Ann Schuhriemen.
This show is considered to be an extremely special one to the department as it will be Connie Phillips’ final show at Quincy University. She will be retiring from her teaching position at the school after serving as the Theatre Department’s director for 15 years.
“It was a really hard decision for me, but it feels like the right time,” Phillips said.
