‘Very Merry Un-Tea Party’

Portico Dans Theatre will host the sort of unusual happening that might occur in a place found by passing “Through the Looking Glass.”

“A Very Merry Un-Tea Party” will have an “Alice in Wonderland” theme in recognition of the 10th anniversary of the company’s first major creation, “Project Alice,” which put a contemporary dance spin on Lewis Carroll’s famed creations.

The evening will feature a scavenger hunt, silent auction, performances by Portico Dans Theatre, small bites and wine (in place of tea), and a contest for the most creative — or should that be “Mad?” — hat.

Proceeds will go to fund the company’s upcoming production of “Project Alice,” which will open Sept. 20 at the Tulsa PAC.

Event details: 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 13, at Southwood Landscape & Garden Center, 9025 S. Lewis Ave.

Attire: Festive cocktail (creative headwear is a plus)

Tickets: $25-$50
