‘You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.’
-The Mad Hatter-
The New York SMASH HIT production of Lewis Carroll’s timeless classic ‘Alice in Wonderland’ comes to life on stage in the most hilarity-filled madcap fun, and it’s hitting the Gold Coast these July school holidays. Tumble down the rabbit hole and join Alice, one of literature’s most beloved heroines, in her adventures through Wonderland.
With the cast being summoned from across the country and led by Queensland’s first lady of theatre in Karen Crone, as the Mad Hatter (in a casting twist similar to that of the Cheshire Cat’s smile), this stage production features incredible costumes and sets and is a must-see for children and adults alike – for everyone who loves one of the world’s most-read stories!
Creating Wonderland is NIDA and WAAPA graduate Georgina Walker (Alice), Mamma Mia star James Shaw (White Rabbit), veteran of stage and screen Simon Burvill-Holmes (Queen of Hearts/Cheshire Cat), Karen Crone (Mad Hatter), Oliver Lacey (March Hare), Matilda-award nominated Jackson McGovern (Dormouse/Caterpillar), Queensland stage star Justine Anderson (Tweedle Dum) and Sarah Whale (Tweedle Dee), together with a handful of brilliant puppeteers, who bring to life over 20 unforgettable characters using their ingenious stagecraft and limitless possibilities of imagination.
The ‘entirely bonkers’ story of Alice in Wonderland has delighted the world for generations & this newest incarnation will continue that tradition – dazzling family members of all ages!
Don’t be late for this particular tea party. Alice in Wonderland hits the HOTA stage on 15 July, with showings at 1.00pm and 4.00pm. Tickets at hota.com.au
