In anticipation of our opening weekend, we wanted to introduce the folks who are putting together Alice with a short n' sweet interview. Caitlin Savage is up next!
Would you rather grow as large as a house or shrink to the size of a mouse?
Shrink! I like to scurry under the radar.
What are you most looking forward to in this production of Alice?
I was a part of the 2004 production, and it was as weird and wonderful as the book is. I loved every minute of it. I was sad to miss the second run. I was having a baby. I guess it was worth it. Anyway, I can't wait to see how this version comes together! Plus, I really love wearing bunny ears.
What character from Alice in Wonderland do you most identify with?
I have a soft spot for Bill the lizard. One minute, you're minding your own business, just trying to do your job, and the next minute, you're kicked up a chimney like a reptilian Santa Claus in reverse. Who can't relate to that? If I'm being honest, though, these days I probably most identify with the insouciant old Father William. I am indeed old, but as a children's librarian I spend much of my time shake, shake, shaking my sillies out, much to the chagrin of my eye-rolling elder child. It's mortifying. He's mortified. Moooooooooooom. Like Father William, I, as the kids say, DNGAF.
Where is your Wonderland?
The thrift store! I've been an avid thrifter for overt 20 years. The sounds! The smells! Another man's treasure! Could there be a place more wondrous? On my last trip I found a lovely antique lasagna pan, and a real classy ceramic unicorn lamp. Wonderland.
