Wonderland Escapades – A Musical Dream


Wonderland Escapades – A Musical Dream by Maria Russell

Wonderland Escapades will enchant children of all ages based on Lewis Carroll’s story about a little girl, Alice, who enters a imaginary world of a fantastic fantasy. Journey through a Musical Dream with hilarious capers of characters full of fun, folly and surprises entertained with songs and dance madness. Alice’s curiosity chased a White Rabbit into a rabbit hole where strange and unusual things began to happen in a fascinating adventurous Enchanted Forest of a nonsensical wonderland.

I received a copy of Wonderland Escapes to review and I have really enjoyed this CD.  My girls love it and I am completely enchanted with the music and singers, Shelley Martinsen and Dan Frank.  Shelley Martinson’s voice is just gorgeous!

A little more information from Maria Russell –

“My newest CD, ‘Wonderland Escapades,’ blends together many different musical styles. I wanted to make the arrangements fit how I envisioned each character. The mischievous Cheshire Cat, for example, I portrayed with a jazzy blues style, and the brothers, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, as being more characteristic with a hip-hop style. There’s also a tango, a tap number, waltzes, pop and the high-energy ‘Wacky Hot Wheels’ as the Mad Hatter’s wild entrance. The CD is broken into three acts with several scenes and songs with guest vocals by Shelley Martinsen and Dan Frank bringing Alice and the various characters to life. ‘Wonderland Escapades’ creates a journey through a musical dream with hilarious capers of characters full of fun, folly and surprises entertained with songs and dance madness in a nonsensical wonderland.”

Alyce is my dancer and she loves to twirl and dance when this CD is on.  The music is perfect for a little ballerina, in fact, I could totally see this on a stage, either as a Broadway show or a ballet.  I think I’d almost prefer a ballet, the music would be wonderful set to dance!

Since we have enjoyed this so much, I asked if I might be able to give away a copy to you!  Maria was so sweet to actually autograph a copy of Wonderland Escapades – A Musical Dream for one of my readers!
