Alice in Wonderland - don't be late for this important date!

Prepare to fall down the rabbit hole this Christmas in a charming stage show that is perfect for little ones and families looking for a special event to enjoy together over the festive break.
My sister-in-law is a HUGE fan of Lewis Carroll's classic tale, Alice in Wonderland, and when I was invited to the press preview the weekend before last, but couldn't personally attend, I knew the perfect person to fill my shoes.

The afternoon involved afternoon tea, arts and crafts and meeting the cast before seeing the show before it launches to the public. What better way to spend the afternoon, for an Alice fan?!
This modern adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale follows Alice on her journey through the enchanted and extraordinary Wonderland, meeting many peculiar characters along the way. From intriguing white rabbits, bizarre riddles, mad tea parties and dangerous encounters with the Queen of Hearts, will Alice ever find her way home? 

Here's what Erin has to say about the show:

"It was very true to the cartoon that younger ones might be familiar with and therefore it was ideal for young children.

"It was a really interactive performance. The songs had repetition and children were encouraged to join in, which gives it a pantomime feel with Alice asking for advice on where the bunny had gone and which door to choose throughout the show.

"The White Rabbit first appeared in the audience which gave the children a real buzz and he posed for photos before the performance too.

"All the seats were taken and it was really popular with the little ones on the day. Lots of fun for the family, particularly if you have young children to keep entertained over Christmas!"

You can follow the white rabbit and join the journey this Christmas but remember don’t be late for a very important date! 

Alice in Wonderland is on at The Old Rep now until 30th December on selected dates, with tickets prices £13.80 for children and concessions and £16.50 for adults - visit the website for more information and to book your tickets. 

* I received press tickets to the preview but the review is my own.
