ROCKINGHAM — Every adventure requires a first step — and that first step will begin Friday when the Richmond Community Theatre’s Young People’s Theatre will present Alice in Wonderland.

There will four 45-minute shows featuring 24 youth participating beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday and continuing that evening at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 1 and 4 p.m.

Director Shelly Walker said the 5 p.m. and 4 p.m. shows will feature half the cast while the rest will act in the other two productions.

Tickets for the shows are $3 for adults and $1.50 for kids and can be purchased at the theatre’s box office.

With teaching two dozen young people a play of this magnitude in two weeks, Walker said, “We must be crazy.”

But as the Cheshire Cat would say, “I’m not crazy. My reality is just different than yours.”
