Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

This colourful, vibrant performance of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was well received by children and adults alike. With a mixed cast of humans and puppets it was a brief but fun show perfect for young families.

The staging was brilliantly creative; minimalist but effective.

The show was only 45 minutes long but the performers packed a lot into the time, keeping the story moving at a good pace. It started with Alice falling down the rabbit hole and landing in Wonderland. From there the excitement started as she met different characters, all the old favourites such as The Mad Hatter, The Cheshire Cat, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee and many more. Each character got their own scene with Alice, making it easy for the young audience to understand what was happening at all times. The puppets themselves were very effective and you almost forgot they weren’t alive due to the clever puppetry skills of the actors. The actions and voices made each character unique and true to the original Alice in Wonderland.

The staging was brilliantly creative; minimalist but effective. All the props and scenery unfolded from one, very clever box, transforming the black stage into a forest, castle gardens or a house as Alice made her way through wonderland. With no specialist lighting, sounds or effects there was potential for some of the more bizarre situations to be confusing for the children but the acting techniques of the performers made each twist and turn fully comprehensible.

The story was as whacky as you would expect using situations from the original and adapting them into the shorter time frame. There were humorous points that received laughs from the parents as well as the children, making it a great show for the whole family. Everyone left with a smile on their face having thoroughly enjoyed the trip through Wonderland.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
