“Time will stand still as you are swept away” Weekend Notes

“In need of some lively outdoor entertainment for children? Look no further....” Herald Sun

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll’s classic story, is coming to life in the beautiful gardens of Rippon Lea House and Gardens  for the summer holidays. All the crazy characters will be there!

Join Alice as she goes down the rabbit hole and follows the White Rabbit into the fun and magical world of Wonderland. She will get taller and smaller, dance with the Dodo, talk with a Caterpillar, sneeze with the Duchess, have tea with the Mad Hatter and keep her head from the Queen of Hearts.

This captivating promenade children’s production will keep the whole family enthralled and entertained with acrobatics, shouting, singing, dancing and riddles and rhymes. There’s lots of fun participation for the kids and even the adults have to turn into cards and march behind the Queen of Hearts – or it’s off with their heads!

Glenn Elston, best known for his productions of Shakespeare Under the Stars and “The Wind in the Willows”, has adapted the book into a dynamic and highly enjoyable production that entertains all ages.
