A funked-up remix of Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice in Wonderland, adapted by Stockroom, opens at Liverpool Playhouse July 4–22 before transferring to Theatre Royal Plymouth August 1–5.
It features new music inspired by the best of British pop by Olivier Award-winner Vikki Stone and stars multi-talented actor-musicians including Olivier, Critics Circle and WhatsOnStage.com award winner Leanne Jones as The Queen of Charts and Merseyside actor Paislie Reid in the title role.
Joining them are Daniel Carter-Hope, Natasha Lewis, Jerome Lincoln, Zweyla Mitchell Dos Santos, Tomi Ogbaro, John Pfumojena and Steve Simmonds.
When tech-savvy teen Alice tries to repair her dear Dad’s much-loved old stereo, a slip of the screwdriver hurtles her into a strange new world. As the tape unravels, she meets a host of unlikely new friends and meets her musical match against the infamous Queen of Charts.
