On a summer day in 1862, ten-year old Alice and her two sisters were told a story about a little girl, a white rabbit and a trip down a hole into an astonishing world.

Delight in the stunning visuals and theatrical magic as we meet the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the Mock Turtle and the Queen of Hearts and watch Alice try to make sense of this world of grown-up nonsense.
A magical, musical experience for adults and children alike!
