I love Christmas. Shopping for gifts, visiting Santa, meeting up with family and friends, and buying cheesy festive jumpers. But my favourite part is going to the theatre to see a show with my family. For the past few years, we normally see the Christmas show at the Rose Theatre Kingston. This year, I am so excited about Alice in Winterland.
Written by Lewis Carroll, and adapted and directed by Ciaran McConville, Alice in Winterland looks like it will be another family favourite. Watch as the White Rabbit visit Alice and begs her to help him save Winterland (a frozen world of mad hatters and a terrible Jabberwock). The very brave Alice goes on a magical adventure. Expect puppetry, projections and a delightful cast of 30.
I know you’re intrigued, so along with some of the photos from the rehearsals, I’ve included the trailer. Have a look and a watch. Alice in Winterland is showing at the Rose Theatre from the 7th December 2017 until the 7th January 2018. The show runs for two hours, including an interval, and is suitable for children five and over.
The lovely folks from the Rose Theatre are offering my readers the chance to win a family ticket to see Alice in Winterland on Thursday, 7 December at 6pm. Please note that the ticket is only for this date, so please don’t enter if you are not free on the 7th. The giveaway closes at midnight on the 3rd December. Enter below, and good luck!!
