”Hold on tight! When you dash through a rabbit hole into a strange new world, 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 everybody is a suspect! 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. This fun-filled musical, full of pantomime features, will entertain the whole family with laughter, adventure and song. Excitement you could only find with a little girl named Alice! And only in a place called Wonderland!”  Don Macrae
