Alice By Heart follows teenagers Alice Spencer, played by Molly Godron, and her dear friend Alfred, played by Colton Ryan, as they journey down the rabbit hole in an attempt to escape their harsh, violent realities. The new musical explores the poignancy of first love, coming to terms with loss, and what it means to find the courage to move forward.
