Come see local youth actors from Cabarrus and Surrounding Counties in this production by Actors of Tomorrow.  

Dorothy in Wonderland will open Friday June 16th at 7:30pm at the Harrisburg Presbyterian Church.  The show will run for two weekends, June 16, 17, 23 & 24 at 7:30pm and June 18 & 25 on Sunday at 2:30 pm. If you have children and need something to do one day this weekend or next weekend consider bringing them to see a cast of 30 kids perform live on stage. Tickets are on sale now through

The worlds of Oz and Wonderland collide in this fantastically fun romp, cleverly and carefully adapted from the works of L. Frank Baum and Lewis Carroll.  Dorothy Gale has made her way to the end of the Yellow Brick Road, and the wonderful Wizard of Oz is just about to help her get back home to Kansas.  But before she can hop into the wizard’s balloon, another whirlwind appears over the Emerald City, sweeping Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion away to Wonderland.  Equipped with their new assets — brains, heart and courage — Dorothy’s friends try to help her find her way home, meeting many other interesting characters along the way, including Alice, the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, March Hare, the Cheshire Cat and many more.  They also must face a dangerous new foe — the Queen of Hearts!  Dorothy and Alice team up to defeat the queen at croquet, but will that be enough to return Wonderland to normal?  And how will they ever get back home to Kansas and to London?
