From the 9th to the 28th of January, 2018 , Lewis Carroll’s classic story, 'Alice in Wonderland', comes to life in the beautiful surrounds of Rippon Lea House and Gardens. Returning to this heritage listed “other worldly” location in 2017, there really is no better pairing of production and placement for this much lauded Australian Shakespeare Company Summer season.

ASC Artistic Director, Glenn Elston - best known for his productions of Shakespeare Under the Stars and The Wind in the Willows - once again cleverly adapts a much loved classic tale into a dynamic and highly enjoyable production that entertains all ages.

Full of fanciful characters, 'Alice in Wonderland' follows Alice as she tumbles down the rabbit hole into a wonderland, encountering talking Rabbits, Caterpillars, Cats, and the larger than life Queen of Hearts. She gets taller and smaller, dances with the Dodo, talks with a Caterpillar, sneezes with the Duchess, has tea with the Mad Hatter, and works to keep her head from the Queen of Hearts.

This captivating promenade-style children's production from the ASC finally returns this year to enthral and delight the whole family. With acrobatics, singing, dancing, and riddles and rhymes, there’s lots of fun participation for children. Even adults have to turn into cards and march behind the Queen of Hearts...or suffer the consequences.

Young and old alike are invited to join Alice as she goes down the rabbit hole into the magical world of Wonderland in another of the much loved Summer productions by the Australian Shakespeare Company.
