Temecula Presents Arts Education


The City of Temecula is pleased to offer the fifth session of Temecula Presents’ Student-Led Arts Education Internship Programallowing students to gain experience in the theater industry.  This free program provides local youth access to three months of mentorship from professional artists and expert advisors and encourages dynamic, innovative community building and learning through youth-focused arts and cultural projects. 

This year, we present Alice in Wonderland with book, music, and lyrics by Janet Yates and Mark Friedman based on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. This brand new musical version of the timeless classic takes you down the rabbit hole with the ever-curious Alice to a land of zany adventures where nothing is as it seems. The White Rabbit, Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar, the Mock Turtle, the mysterious Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts, and all of your favorites from Lewis Carroll's beloved books make this a magical, tuneful, and over-the-top entertaining musical for the whole family!

Auditions and interviews for both performance roles and stage and production experiences behind the curtain will begin in the fall of 2022 at no charge to the selected participants. When registering, please select if you would like to Audition for the Cast or be part of the Production Team.
