Panto Alicia in Wonderland

Dates & Times

Panto Alicia in Wonderland

Written by TEATRX

Directed by Benito Vasquez
and Marissa Castillo

Supported by The Buttons Brigade

December 1-December 31

Sterling Stage



Stages’ panto tradition gives the classic fairy tale a fresh new Houston spin! As her quinceañera approaches, Alice (not Alicia) questions the tradition and pushes away her culture. But once she falls down the rabbit hole, the magical world around her celebrates all that makes her Alicia. Created by Houston’s own TEATRX—and studded with parodies of Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, and more—Panto Alicia in Wonderland topples headfirst into wonder and fun.
