What do you get when you mash-up two beloved children’s classics and throw in slapstick humor, corny jokes, and silly song parodies? ALICE in PANTO-LAND! This original twist on Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan will delight kids and adults alike. Cheering for the heroes and booing for the baddies is strongly encouraged in this family-friendly holiday treat!
