Make the world more wonderful with Alice!

Choose a door and discover what's beyond...perhaps you'll be dancing with turtles or investigating the suspicious theft of the best Royal Jam Tarts.

Wonderland is a new exciting multi-sensory, interactive and intergenerational show for 2019.

Featuring original music, playful characters, plenty of opportunities to join in and the chance to experience the smells and even the tastes of Wonderland!

Wonderland has been developed for an intergenerational audience where some of the members of the audience may be are living with dementia. 

The show has been devised to work in the context of a care-home, community centre or school setting as well as for family festivals and events, as well as conventional theatre spaces. The show works in both indoor and outdoor locations.

The show was made at Creative Workspace in March 2019, and it's first tour , a mixture of community and theatre venues, runs from April to July 2019. Full details below.

Wonderland is kindly supported by Arts Council England, Bristol Ageing Better,  Quartet Community Foundation, Wells Theatre Festival, That Creative Thingy Wotsit CIC and BID Clifton Village.
