Copious Love’s all-original musical spectacular was voted back to the stage as the audience favorite to open Season 3! 

Alice’s Anthem will take you on a different adventure than you might be expecting. We have used choice characters, plot points and themes from Lewis Carroll’s text to inspire OUR original story and music. Our Alice is a troubled, and somewhat psychotic, teen who is running away from home, her boring life and her abusive mother. Upon meeting a jovial eccentric who calls himself Mad Max, she finds herself at a Magic Mushroom Tea Party; and as she begins to hallucinate and trip the people around her start to change into some familiar characters and her journey toward enlightenment and self-discovery rapidly takes a detour.

Have you ever wanted to jump down the rabbit hole and escape the normalcy of everyday life? Join Copious Love as we do just that, starting this Friday night! Alice’s Anthem is a highly interactive psychedelic experience and much different from other adaptations inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic tale.

Dark, independent, and ferociously adolescent our Alice is a troubled and somewhat psychotic teenage arsonist. When we meet her she is off her medication and desperately trying to escape her home, her boring life and her mother. While running, Alice meets the town eccentric and follows him to a Tea Party unlike any other. As she begins to hallucinate and trip the people around her start to change into some familiar characters and her journey toward enlightenment and self-discovery rapidly takes a detour.
