For the holidays, Children's Musical Theater San Jose runs Lewis Carroll through the Disney magic machine to create 'Alice in Wonderland Jr.,' which adds such tunes as "I'm Late" and "The Un-birthday Song" to the familiar story. The play runs Nov. 20–23 at the Montgomery Theater in San Jose. (Picture are, from left, Charlie Ibsen, Noah Lerner, Mandy McDonell and Nora Vellis.)
