Alice in Zombieland was performed at Mapleton Jr. High this past Halloween.  In it, Alice took her friend, Dinah, through Wonderland as they encounter one big problem, Zombies!  They interact with many different characters as they try to solve the zombie infestation.   The show was done in neon costumes under black lights.
