Yocum Institute to Present Mad Hatter Tea Party at Gring’s Mill
June 25 @ 6:00 pm
– Bring out the whole family and a blanket to enjoy live theater in a beautiful
setting. The Yocum Institute for Arts Education will present two performances of The Mad Tea Party
by Brian D. Taylor at Gring’s Mill Amphitheater on Saturday, June 25. Performances will be held at
10 am and 6pm. Tickets and parking are FREE.
Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland characters are brought together in an original story with the same wit
and whimsy as the classic tales. Mad Hatter, Dormouse, and March Hare meet for a tea party to
honor Time, who has forgiven the Hatter and set time right once again. When the Jabberwock
comes and wreaks havoc, the tea party guests — including the Caterpillar, the Duchess, the Frog
Footman, and Tweedledee and Tweedledum — decide that something must be done. Time
suggests they travel back through time to the moment when the Jabberwock arrives so that they
might catch him. They travel back several times, but White Rabbit’s watch is fast, Hatter’s is slow,
and they just can’t catch the Jabberwock. Finally, Hare realizes they must fix the nick in Time…
Time’s cloak, that is, to save them from the Jabberwock! After all, a stitch in Time saves nine!
Gring’s Mill Amphitheater is located at 2083 Tulpehocken Road, Wyomissing. These programs are
presented by the Berks County Parks & Recreation Department in conjunction with the Yocum
Institute for Arts Education. For more information visit www.countyofberks.com/parks or
