For a great family adventure take a few minutes from Holiday Shopping in Tampa Bay and spend a night or afternoon finding Wonderland! 

Since it is too cold to visit Tampa Bay Area Beaches and who wants to brave the cold for Buccaneers Football the perfect Tampa Bay activity is experiencing Wonderland: Alice's New Musical Adventure; produced locally by Tampa Bay's very own David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts.  

With excellent music and awe-inspiring special effects the entire family will never forget following Alice, a children’s book writer, through Manhattan while she suffers through a creative block, estrangement from her husband and alienation from her daughter.

In this world premiere of a new musical by lyricist Jack Murphy, book writers Jack Murphy and Gregory Boyd and acclaimed composer Frank Wildhorn, you follow Alice to a strange-yet-familiar Wonderland for her to regain her life’s balance and again find the love and everyday magic that reside in us all – if we know how to look. 

Wildhorn’s score taps into numerous pop styles, and Murphy’s lyrics provide both wit and wisdom.  Jekyll and Hide with score by Wildhorn tops my list of favorite musicals of all time.  He does not disappoint with Wonderland.  You will find yourself singing certain songs as you leave the theatre and head back out to finish Holiday Shopping in Tampa Bay with a much better attitude!
