The Rose is delighted to announce full casting for its Christmas show, Alice in Winterland, based on Lewis Carroll’s timeless books Alice Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
Following the success of last year’s enchanting adaptation of The Wind in the Willows and 2015’s festive hit A Christmas Carol, Ciaran McConville returns to direct a cast of local young actors from the Rose Youth Theatre led by a team of professional actors including Daniel Goode (Father/Mad Hatter), Amanda Gordon (Cheshire Cat/Mother), Jonathan Andrew Hume (Blue Caterpillar/Knave), Tony Timberlake (White Knight/Isumbras) and Susannah van den Berg (Aunt Margaret/Queen of Hearts). The production opens on the Fri 15 Dec, with previews from Thu 7 Dec, and runs until Sun 7 Jan.
Alice has been brought up to believe in wonder, but life takes an unexpected turn when her wounded father returns home from the Great War. Confronted with losing her home, she is visited by a White Rabbit who propels her on a quest to save Winterland, a world of ice and imagination, of mad hatters and cruel queens, curious cats and strong-minded dodos, a frozen world inhabited by the mysterious Bandersnatch and the terrible Jabberwock, where only the most intrepid of girls can make the impossible seem possible…
Featuring magically evocative music and strikingly imaginative designs, puppetry and projections, this spectacular new stage production of Lewis Carroll's timeless books takes the audience into a fairy-tale land of wonder and adventure.
Alice In Winterland will be at the Rose Thu 7 Dec to Sun 7 Jan 2018. To book tickets click here.
