FERNDALE, Mich. (AP) - A Detroit-based immersive theater group is launching its take on Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”

The group called nerve debuts “ALICE” on Friday evening at the Drayton Avenue Presbyterian Church in the suburb of Ferndale. The name combines “Alice” and “alive,” with the “C” in the title replaced by the symbol for less-than.

Director Kathe Koja says her company’s version is a “dark” update of Carroll’s classic, and nerve encourages audience interaction as the production moves through the church’s meeting spaces and classrooms.

Opening night sold out but tickets are available for other performances during weekends throughout October.

Immersive theater is a popular way to attract theatergoers seeking nontraditional shows and venues. Other companies operate in New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Pittsburgh and elsewhere.
