Kids love ‘Alice’ 

“Alice in Wonderland,” the Arkansas Arts Center’s Children’s Theatre holiday musical, opens Thursday, Dec. 2, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 19. Lewis Carroll’s classic fantasy is directed by Alan Keith Smith and stars Sarah Clagett as Alice, along with a cast of unusual characters. Individual tickets are $14 and may be reserved at 372-4000. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. The AAC is at Ninth Street in MacArthur Park. The mirth and irreverent holiday humor of the local sketch comedy troupe Red Octopus is on display for “Pagans on Bobsleds XIII,” running from Monday, Dec. 6, through Saturday, Dec. 11, at Vino’s Brewpub, Seventh and Chester streets. This year’s show features the debut of a new form of rap, dubbed “Flip Flop”; an alien invasion of Sherwood; Fox News’ report from the Clinton Presidential Center opening, and more targets for Red Octopus’ barbs. Of course at holiday season, they give much more than they get. And there’s always an appearance by drunk, belligerent Santa. The cast features Sandy Baskin, Geoffery Bryant, Jason Gregory, Michael Henderson, Donavan Suitt, Patricia Stiffler, Jason Thompson and Liz Van Dalsem with a cameo by Steve Ross. Showtimes are 8 p.m. (doors at 7:30) each night. Admission at the door is $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. The Public Theatre, which is under new management, is running a pair of holiday shows leading up to Christmas. “The Santaland Diaries” and “Seasons Greetings” will be performed at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 2-4. Admission is $10. Next week, the troupe reprises “Holiday Choir” and “Christmas Memory” Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. Admission is $10. Call 374-7529 for more information.

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
