Go Mad As A Hatter For Alice In Wonderland Themed Show
It's one of the hottest new musicals to hit the stage and now Wonderland makes its UK debut on a national tour that stops off at cities including Birmingham, Manchester and Blackpool.

The show is a musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

Wonderland the musical makes its UK debut in a 2017 UK tour

It follows Alice when she is estranged from her husband, alienated from her daughter and in danger of losing her career. Amidst this backdrop, Alice finds herself in Wonderland where she encounters strange though familiar characters that help her rediscover the wonder in her life while searching for her daughter.

Wonderland is being promoted as "a timely and touching story of love in all its forms, ian adventurous exploration of who we are, who we want to be and the power of everyday magic in our lives".

The musical has been nominated for Grammy, Tony and Drama Desk Awards and sold out its seasons in Tampa, Texas and Tokyo.

A brand new British production of Frank Wildhorn's Wonderland will premiere at the Edinburgh Playhouse from January 20 to 28, 2017. It then continues on the first half of its tour until April to cities including Sunderland, Birmingham, Southend, Oxford, Grimsby, York, Bromley, Derry, Belfast, Woking, Blackpool, Southampton and Manchester. The second half of the tour will be announced in May.

Wonderland is directed by Lotte Wakeham (Associate Director of Matilda).
