Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland has been given a festive twist this Christmas as families are invited to Lincoln’s LPAC venue’s annual show.
The Lincoln Company is performing Alice’s Adventures in Winter Wonderland between Friday, December 12 and Wednesday, December 24.
The show, which is recommended to all aged six and over, follows the success of last year’s The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe.
Annually, the LPAC puts on a seasonal alternative to pantomimes and the venue, based on University of Lincoln campus, produces dynamic theatre performances all year round.
Alice’s Adventures in Winter Wonderland is a newly-written production of a classic tale.
The show is set on Christmas Eve and a very curious Alice tumbles into a strange world caught in the clutches of the cruel Jack Frost.
With the help of her newfound friends, including the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat, Alice embarks on a madcap adventure full of talking animals, magical potions and tea parties in order to find the white rabbit, defeat Jack Frost and get back home in time for Christmas.
Director Dominic Symonds said: “One of the reasons we decided to write a home-grown show this year was to make the most of the tremendous talent we have in-house in design, puppetry, video work and music.
“Anyone who saw last year’s sell-out show, The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, will know that we really invested in the production, so it is great to be able to write a show ourselves into which we can weave as much technical wizardry, fantastic frocks and rousing music as possible.”
Producer Craig Morrow added: “We’ll be turning the space into an in-the-round theatre, which adds to the intimacy of the performance and places you right at the heart of the action.
“Without giving too much away, we’ll be using the whole theatre for the performance, and I mean the whole space, right the way up to the ceiling!”
