Chautauqua Playhouse:

“A Glimpse into a Theatrical World”



December 2-

January 15


Jones, Hope and Wooten


Under a full moon on this unpredictable night of romance, these four rollicking tales take you on an around-the-globe journey of unexpected and hilarious twists and turns!  A slick, successful used-car-selling Romeo in Texas is set up by three fed up “Juliets”, a group of fun-loving gals from Georgia, accidentally crash a Hawaiian honeymoon in progress, two strangers start to connect in a rooftop London Bistro only to be thwarted by an oddball tourist and an ancient, sousaphone playing waitress and finally a man tries to battle his way out of a mid-life crisis with every possible comic distraction! Love conquers all and your sides will ache from laughter!

A new holiday play written especially for Chautauqua’s Audience!

Based on characters by Lewis Carroll.


Advance purchase of tickets is strongly recommended.


Alice finds a mysterious invitation while decorating the Christmas Tree.  She has been invited to the Mad Hatter’s Christmas Party.  She must travel back to Wonderland to see her friends, but can’t be late, or the Queen of Hearts will have her head.


Along the way, she is reunited with Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, the White Queen, the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts and a new character, Beatrice Thesaurus, the Pathkeeper to Wonderland.


Songs and riddles and some stolen tarts keep this fast paced story a delight for the Holiday Season!
