Wakehurst // Alice in Wonderland – Alice in Wonderland – TheatreOnKew

This summer join Alice on her amazing journey through Wonderland and experience an adventure like no other.

Lewis Carroll’s classic story is cleverly lifted from the page and beautifully brought to life in Glenn Elston’s highly acclaimed production.

Life is suddenly turned up-side down for Alice, so join her as she tumbles down the rabbit hole and lands in the magical world of “Wonderland”. It’s a roller-coaster of a story as she bravely bounces from one unexpected and amazing situation to the next.
