Upended Productions Presents 'Alice'


Cultivate will become one of the many stages for Upended Production’s Alice – an immersive theatrical experience traveling the Main-Dempster Mile. Follow the rabbit Saturdays & Sundays starting with preview performances on September 16th and running September 22nd-Oct 21st.


Alice is an ambulatory, multi-disciplinary theatrical experience. The audience, traveling in groups of 15, follows a white rabbit to various locations throughout the Main-Dempster Mile in Evanston. Ducking into storerooms and back patios, traipsing through stores and taverns and galleries, the audience IS Alice and the Main-Dempster Mile shopping district becomes a wonderland. Chapters of the book are divided amongst Evanston and Chicago theater companies, visual artists, and filmmakers, and performed in the various locations throughout the neighborhood.

With original work by The Factory TheaterMudlark Theater CompanyThe Fleetwood-Jourdain TheaterShowParty!Naomi Ashley, Laura McKenzie, David Kodeski, Corrbette PaskoEmmy BeanJosh Zagoren, Dina Walters, Logan Kibens, John Randle and many more.

This show takes place both indoors and out and will commence rain or shine.  There are no refunds unless the show is officially cancelled—because Alice isn’t scared of a little water.

This performance of Alice is supported in part by the Evanston Arts Council and lots of generous help from the Main-Dempster Mile SSA.
