Adventures In Wonderland" started its life as a simple story
thought up by Charles Ludwig Dodgson, a young Oxford professor,
to amuse the three daughters of the Dean of Christchurch College as
they drifted and rowed their way down the Isis to a picnic. From
this humble beginning, Lewis Carroll, as his pen-name became, took
this story and its follow-up, "Alice Through The Looking Glass" to be published, and become probably the most famous children's
story in the English Language.
adventures were first published in 1865 but scarcely a week passes
by without some reference being made to its contents, either in
editorial, newspaper, courtroom, or novel. Many adaptations have
been made over the course of time, perhaps the most famous being
the version by Walt Disney which mixed elements of both books.
new adaptation is a modern musical which tries to use all the best elements
of the original book and including other pieces to add to the story
en route. It began its life in 1987 as a piece to pass the time,
and has been worked on and modified into its present form with 14
original songs, which it is hoped will add to the show's enjoyment.
sit back and relax. You'll be taken on an unforgettable journey
with Alice down a rabbit hole, following the White Rabbit who is
late for a date with the Queen Of Hearts to play croquet. On the
way Alice changes size many times and meets a whole host of characters
including a Mouse, a Caterpillar, a Duchess, and a Cheshire Cat.
She has tea with The Mad Hatter and March Hare, and gets advice
from a Mock Turtle. Then onto a very far-fetched trial over"Who
Stole The Tarts?"
