Go down the rabbit hole this month, as Irondale Ensemble presents "alice…Alice…ALICE!," an original, environmental excursion performance piece, based on the Lewis Carroll classic, “Alice in Wonderland.”

The audience follows the ensemble down the rabbit hole into Wonderland — the nooks, crannies, recesses and lofts of the Irondale Center and its historic 19th century building. This unique, adventurous performance exploration will be vastly different from other theatrical presentations and the audience is encouraged to wear comfortable clothing. Don’t let the stairs, attics, and over-crofts keep you away.

Get ready to enter a strange and wonderful world that the general public seldom sees with the Irondale company as your guide.alice...Alice...ALICE! appeals to audiences of all ages. The show is a combination of predetermined text and improvisation. The music is original, punctuated by an eclectic mix of existing music used in surprising and thought provoking contexts.

In addition to the main production, the Irondale Ensemble will also present two Saturday matinees, February 6 and 20 at 1 p.m., which will be a collaboration with the Irondale Young Company, a theater ensemble comprised entirely of Brooklyn high school youth. The Young Company will take the lead in this production and present a piece that contains themes highlighting pervasive boredom in today’s fragmented, niche society and the desire to reach out to others and make human connection.

The show runs through February 20, Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8 p.m. at Irondale Center, 85 South Oxford Street.

Tickets are $35; $20 students and working artists, and for everyone on Wednesday and Friday nights; Thursday nights, tickets are $15 and $10 for Saturday Matinees. Saturday night tickets are $50, which includes a post show salon with cast and director and a wine & cheese reception. For more, call 718-488-9233.
