Puppet theatre for ages 4 and over/ families
Join Alice on her magical adventure as she chases the White rabbit back in time on a fantastic spiralling journey into Wonderland.
Watch her change in size in this dream-like shadow adaptation of the famous tale of Lewis Carroll. On her journey she meets the Cheshire Cat, a two-legged dragon and the March Hare at the mediaeval Mad Hatter’s Tea party. But beware the Queen of Hearts or you might just lose your head!
Alice and The White Rabbit celebrates different shadow techniques and is inspired by the gothic architecture and mediaeval times of the original white rabbit statue found in St. Mary’s Church, Beverley, East Yorkshire.
“Anna Ingleby voices the characters with flair, while Haviel Perdana provides the music. Ingleby spends the majority of her time behind a screen and projects the characters brilliantly by voice alone. She’s a great storyteller, and pulls off all the voices expertly, whether she is the softly-spoken Alice, the permanently in-a-rush Rabbit or the haughty Red Queen herself. Perdana’s music hits all the right notes (pardon the pun) at the right times, nothing ever feeling out of place.”
