|ALICE IN WONDERLAND||A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM||MICHAEL'S STORY||SITE MAP|
Inspired by Lewis Carroll's original dream adventure, this is a theatrical production with song and incidental music that brings to life the surrealistic characterizations and fantasical atmosphere of this universally beloved story. This musical adaptation of Alice was written for performances by a children's theater group, but the play can be performed for "kids of all ages" by adults as well and is available for licensing by your preforming organization. The score, which ranges in style from pop to opera (without operatic vocal requirements) expresses all the humor, drama and emotional power of this remarkable tale. For more information and musical examples, go here:
"... it was the music that gave the Ft. Collins Children's Theater production of "Alice in Wonderland" its most unique flavor. Sirotta can be credited with composing music that straddles the fence between theater and concert. It was unusually textured instrumentally, considering the lyrics had a particular story to tell. This felt like an upgrade in the quality of music over other kids' productions in memory."
— Tim Van Schmidt, Publisher and independent columnist,fortcollinslife-times.com
Michael Sirotta has prepared a new production package which includes an abridged version of Shakespeare's comedy plus an original musical score, including songs, incidental music and sound effects that will provide companies that wish to stage the play with the added magical dimension of a sound track.

"...Just wanted to thank you again for your beautiful arrangements--we got them all worked into our script and they are perfect--especially the fairy lullaby. That keeps getting stuck in my head! ... Gorgeous!"
— Lynn Brant, Director, Z Center Stage, Zillow, WA
