Through the Looking Glass

Alice is at home playing chess when suddenly she is drawn through the mirror into a strange world where her chess figures come to life. Terrorised by the Red Queen, protected by the White Knight and hunted by the Jabberwock, she goes on a thrilling quest through the Forgotten Forest, meeting Humpty Dumpty, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, and the Lion and the Unicorn along the way. Join her on her adventure, packed full of songs, dancing and some crazy nonsense characters – this colourful production of Lewis Carroll’s famous tale is the perfect Christmas show for all ages.
