Alice in Winterland

  • Thu 07 Dec - Sun 07 Jan

Written by Lewis Carroll | Adapted and directed by Ciaran McConville | Music & lyrics by Eamonn O'Dwyer

Follow Alice down the rabbit hole and discover a magical world of wonders in this spectacular new stage adaptation of Lewis Carroll's timeless books, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Featuring gorgeous music and strikingly imaginative designs, puppetry and projections, Alice in Winterland is brought to life on the Rose stage by a talented cast of over 30 actors.

Alice has been brought up to believe in wonder, but life takes an unexpected turn when she is sent to live with her stern auntie… until she is visited by a White Rabbit who propels her on a quest to save Winterland, a magical world of ice and imagination, of mad hatters and cruel queens. A frozen world inhabited by the mysterious Bandersnatch and the terrible Jabberwock, where only the bravest of girls can make the impossible seem possible…

The production features professional actors alongside members of the Rose Youth Theatre.
