Join Alice this summer as she tumbles down the rabbit hole and lands in the magical world of ‘Wonderland’ on stage in The Australian Shakespeare Company’s “Alice in Wonderland”.
From Tuesday 7th January to Sunday 26th January, Lewis Carroll’s classic story will be cleverly lifted from the page and brought to life at Rippon Lea House and Gardens in Glenn Elston’s highly acclaimed production that was awarded “Best Stage Play” by London’s Entertainment Views in 2018.
As Alice bravely bounces from one unexpected situation to the next, she meets a wildly curious assortment of characters including the skittish, constantly late White Rabbit, the Dodo and other birds in the Caucaus race, and the pepper obsessed Duchess and her extremely crazy cook.
Children and adults alike will be left with a grin from ear to ear as the Cheshire Cat cheekily guides Alice through Wonderland, and audiences can’t miss Humpty Dumpty on his way to meet Tweedledum and Tweedledee as they tell the tale of the Walrus and the Carpenter. What might seem slightly silly becomes downright absurd as the Mad Hatter arrives with the March Hare and the Dormouse to have a grand time with Alice at the tea party, before the Queen of Hearts enters for a magnificent finale where every audience member can join in the fun.
Families can pack a picnic (or tea party!), get dressed up as their favourite Alice in Wonderland characters and immerse themselves in the interactive games and catchy songs. Alice in Wonderland is the perfect school holiday adventure to enjoy with the entire family and friends this summer.
