The show will start at 3 p.m. at the Lincoln Theater with opening numbers by the All Valley School of Dance. This event is sponsored by WesBanco.

OI’s Youth Ballet Company Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a novel written by author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known under the pseudonym “Lewis Carroll.” It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar characters and creatures.

Alice is bored of sitting on the riverbank with her older sister, who is reading a book. Suddenly she sees a white rabbit run past. The rabbit, wearing a coat and carrying a watch, says to himself that he is going to be late. She follows it down a rabbit hole. And the adventure begins.
