Alice in Wonderland
Goldsmith's compact version of the Lewis Carrol masterpiece has been delighting audiences for years at Columbus Children's Theatre, Ohio, where he serves as artistic director and playwright. Alice's plummet down the rabbit hole introduces her to a host of outlandish characters, ingeniously played by four actors.
