Alice in Wonderland – The Australian Shakespeare Company

Alice in Wonderland 1

As you know, we really enjoy the Australian Shakespeare Company‘s productions. We think they are a great way to introduce children to the world of live theatre! We had never seen the Australian Shakespeare Company’s version of Alice in wonderland (based on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll’s classic story) so we knew we had to change that!

We grabbed our picnic blanket, our chairs and a picnic and headed off to Rippon Lea Estate (the gardens are amazing to explore after the show) and joined Alice as she follows the White Rabbit into the fun and magical world of Wonderland.

Alice in Wonderland 4

Of course, the production is funny and there’s plenty of audience participation. We would expect nothing less of an Australian Shakespeare Company’s production! You can expect to see a hoard of little caterpillars are encouraged to crawl away as fast as they can before the Queen shouts “off with their heads” and they are all cheered on by a large deck of playing cards!

Alice in Wonderland 6.jpg

Top Tip: Don’t put your kids in clothes that you don’t want grass stains on the knees!

Alice in Wonderland 2

All of your favourite characters are there! Alice dances with the Dodo, is surprised by the Cheshire Cat, sings with Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, talks with a Caterpillar, sneezes with the Duchess, has tea with the Mad Hatter and keeps her head from the Queen of Hearts.

Alice in Wonderland 5

Photography during the performance is not allowed, but there are plenty of photo opportunities after the show.

Alice In Wonderland 3.jpg

Alice in Wonderland is a fun, fast-paced journey into fantasy and the kids will love it!
