Coming Soon – Alice in Wonderland!

We’ll all have the chance to follow Alice down the rabbit hole – this school year, the Palo Alto Children’s Theatre returns to Palo Verde to work with our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to stage the play “Alice in Wonderland.” Any 3rd through 5th grader who wants to participate as cast or crew will be able to participate. PACT will accommodate whatever number of students express interest and commit to the rehearsal and performance schedule. More information will be coming soon, but key dates to put on your calendar include auditions on Tuesday, 10/11, and Thursday, 10/13, with performances on Thursday, 12/8, Friday, 12/9, and Saturday, 12/10. A parent meeting will be held prior to the auditions to cover key details and answer questions. Whether your child participates in the production or enjoys being part of the audience, everyone at Palo Verde is sure to love the fantastical world of Alice in Wonderland!
