Dream Child
“Dream Child,” an original play written and performed by Roxanne Fay, will be presented Thursday and Friday, May 26-27, 7 p.m., at The Studio@620, 620 First Ave. S., St. Petersburg.

“Dream Child: The Trial of Alice in Wonderland” journeys through the surreal worlds of memory, sin and absolution within the mind of Alice Liddell, Lewis Carroll’s original muse and inspiration for his timeless stories.

It is 1932 and the very grown up Alice is having a new adventure; she is coming to America. Though on the surface her trip is to attend the centennial celebrations surrounding Carroll’s 100th birthday, her true purpose is much more personal, more frightening and more visceral. Is she merely entertaining old memories? Is she seeking absolution for the past? And from whom?

Roxanne Fay is a 2015 Hawthornden Writing Fellow and has presented numerous original works at The Studio@620 and the Dali Museum.

General admission tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors.

For information, visit www.studio620.org or call 727-895-6620.

A hilarious comedy that takes you in front and behind the scenes ...

The Tampa Ballet Theatre is closing its season with “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” with two shows at Ruth Eckerd Hall.

Watch these three stories intertwine in the most hilarious and bizarre ways. Magic, action, love and humor are the ingredients for this unforgettable story.
