Alice in Wonderland by Don Macrae and Ted Blackbourn
Hold on tight! When you fall a thousand miles down a rabbit hole, you have to expect the unexpected - from the wicked Queen of Hearts to the dizzy Mad Hatter. You see, someone has stolen the Queen's tarts and guess who the prime suspect is? It's a matter of survival for Alice and her lovable cat, Dinah. And all those familiar characters – plus some delightful new ones – aren't helping very much. Get set for more strange surprises than you could wish for in a lifetime! This fun-filled musical, featuring lots of audience participation, will thrill the whole family with songs and riddles, laughter and adventure. Excitement you could only find with a little girl named Alice! And only in a place called Wonderland!
