Important notice to our patrons:

The performance will begin at 7:30pm at the west gate. Park in the Glensheen parking lot and make your way to the west gate using the sidewalk along London Road. Registered patrons will check in with an usher, so no need to pick up your ticket order at will call. No late entries will be accepted, please allow extra time for parking, walking to the gate, and checking in. We recommend arriving no later than 7:15pm.

At the end of the evening, patrons will exit the Glensheen grounds by the ticket house in the lower section of the parking lot.

Please continue to watch your email for any updates or cancellations due to inclement weather.

Alice in Wonderland allows the viewer to experience close-up action with our actors. This is an immersive production on the beautiful grounds of Glensheen Mansion with the backdrop of Lake Superior. 

We want to inform all attendees that our audience members throughout the entire performance will be continually standing, walking on uneven paths, and navigating over stone slab stairs.
We suggest our audience members wear appropriate footwear as would be worn for a walk (no heels or flip-flops), and dress according to the current weather conditions for these evening performances.

Glensheen Mansion is an historic estate and those with limited mobility will experience challenges within this terrain during our Alice in Wonderland outdoor performances. Several scenes are not wheelchair accessible, and there will be no access into the Glensheen Mansion. Visit for accessible parking and outdoor restroom information.

Join Alice and her friends at the Alice in Wonderland cast party on the beach after each performance to enjoy music and yummy s’mores around the campfire (if weather and fire danger levels permit).
