What: Tumbleweeds Theatre offers a new twist on an old classic. We take you down the rabbit hole from the Victorian era to the 1960s. Their story takes a mad turn as Alice starts her day in Victorian England reading with her cat Dinah, follows a white rabbit down a rather large hole, and lands in the politically turbulent world of 1960s America. Mirroring  the world today, their ‘Alice’ is a timely tale.

When: 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Cost: Get your tickets here!

VicGOREia, an improvised murder mystery

What: Join them as they follow the lives of eight townsfolk over the space of three theatrical nights and days where on of them meets their maker each night… by who? We won’t know until the end when the remaining members meet to figure it out!
None of the improvisers know who the murderer is (besides the murderer….), and neither do they know who will be the victim each night
