InBocca Performance is pleased to announce its winter theatre production of ALICE, a dance theatre retelling of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Ten years after Alice’s childhood excursion to Wonderland, her elder sister has her committed to an asylum to be treated for hallucinations. Under the rule of a wicked Doctor, Alice must decide if Wonderland is worth surrendering her freedom—and her sanity.

ALICE will run Wednesday, January 18th through Saturday, January 21st. All performances are at 7:30 P.M. at The Mockbee (2260 Central Parkway, Cincinnati, OH 45214). Tickets are $11 for students and seniors and $16 for adults, and the show is appropriate for most ages. To order tickets, please visit or

InBocca Performance utilizes experimental theatre methods to create devised works, which build actors’ craft and produce a unique experience for the audience. Actors construct their own scenes, choreograph dance segments, and work with diverse musical genres, all under general direction from producer Caroline Stine and director Mandie Reiber.

History of the Company
InBocca Performance humbly began as the Cliffview Players in a basement in Ft. Thomas, KY in 1997. It then moved to a backyard in 1999, and became a main stage company in 2008. Notable past performances for the Ft. Thomas Community Theatre at Highlands High School were Peter Pan in 2008 and Into the Woods in 2010.

Artistic Director Caroline Stine began working with young actors to devise theatrical pieces in the summer of 2011 at The Village Players in Ft. Thomas, KY. In 2012, they created The Maid of Orleans, an emotionally charged production about Joan of Arc. In the summer of 2013, they created Romeo y Margarita, a story that combined the lyricism of Shakespearean verse with the romance of the Spanish language.

Since 2013, they have expanded to create art within the greater Cincinnati area. This includes a sellout production of Swan Lake: A Waking Dream at the Southgate House Revival in 2015. That summer, My Twisted Face performed in Cincinnati Fringe Festival, addressing the concept of rape as a part of our society. In 2016, InBocca performed at Cincy Fringe again with Charlie’s Girls, which built a script almost entirely from testimonies from the trials of the Charles Manson murders.

Ms. Caroline Stine (producer and artistic director) is a graduate of Highlands High School, and received her Bachelor degree from Butler University and her Masters in Contemporary Performance from Naropa University in Boulder, CO. She received theatrical training in Italy and Russia and participated in the Crisis Arts Festival in Arezzo, Italy. She is currently teaching at Northern Kentucky University and Notre Dame Academy.
