Press release from Recycled Youth:
The teen theatre company, Recycled Youth, presents their new original show, Down the Rabbit Hole, at the Mateel Community Center on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Dec 3, 4, 5 at 8pm and Sunday Dec 6 at 2pm. The show is a modern take on Alice in Wonderland, but with a twist. Alice lives a simple life in the hills of Humboldt, but when she falls through the rabbit hole, she finds herself at a Police Brutality trial presided over by the Queen of Hearts, a “Tea Party” that is an absurd presidential debate, a Mock Turtle who sobs over the Transpacific Partnership, a caterpillar who explains the dangers of BHO Hash oil and much more. The show features comedy, drama, spoken word, dance, aerial arts, maskwork, songs and acrobatics.
Please support this vital youth program by coming out to see the show, we guarantee you will be entertained. The show has full production values such as costumes, makeup, lights, sound and beautiful sets thanks to the help of many community members.

Doors open 7:30 for evening shows, 1:30 for matinee. Tickets available at the door, $12-15 suggested donation. $5 under 19. There is mature content.
