We’re Looking Forward to : ALICE’S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND
As big fans of immersive theatre it’s fair to say we’re very much looking forward to the new event at the Vaults at Waterloo – an amazing retelling of Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland which had such a hit run last year they’re back for more.
Here’s a bit of info on what the guys behind the event have got planned!
The Olivier nominated smash hit “ALICE’S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND” returns to The Vaults from 15 April to 23 September 2017. Tickets are available to under 26’s for just £25 each for the 5.45pm performance on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 25 April 2017.
“ALICE’S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND” was originally conceived as a celebration of the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel of the same name. This unmissable show had over 100,000 visitors in 2015, culminating in a 2016 Olivier Award nomination for Best Entertainment and Family Show.
With even more twists and turns for 2017, “ALICE’S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND” invites you deep into The Vaults, hidden beneath Waterloo station, to lose yourself in a land far removed from our own.
Writer and Director Oliver Lansley said: “It’s very rare you get the opportunity to revisit a piece like this. Alice 2.0 is bigger, bolder and even more ambitious. New characters, effects, huge new set pieces, and exciting new layers added to the script. You really will be at the heart of the adventure, and this year if you’re under 26 its just £25 each! Whilst such an offer is unusual outside the subsidised sector we felt it was important because under 26s were such a large part of the show’s success last time.”
Tumble down the rabbit hole and experience immersion like never before in this interactive, puppetry-packed, fusion of storytelling, music, circus and spectacle…but this isn’t Alice’s adventure, it’s yours…
Make a series of choices; Eat or drink? Grow or Shrink? And find yourself at the centre of the story as you wander through Wonderland, piecing together the puzzle as to what has happened to Alice who is lost in the looking glass. Be careful as your choice leads you down a completely different path into Wonderland; you might grow to enormous proportions and become one of Wonderland’s elite rubbing shoulders with the highest of playing card suits; or you might shrink to be so small that even border control can’t detect you; take tea at the biggest un-birthday party with the maddest of Hatters; let the Cheshire Cat take you hither or thither or you could even find yourself playing a key part in an underground resistance movement to rise against the fearsome Queen.
“ALICE’S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND” is written by Oliver Lansley and Anthony Spargo and directed by Oliver Lansley and James Seager; and produced by Les Enfants Terribles and ebp in association with Creature of London. Les Enfants Terribles and ebp have recently be nominated for an Innovation Award in The Stage Awards 2017 and also featured on The Stage 100 Theatre Power List.
