The Lyceum Christmas Show 2016 will be Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh presents

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

By Lewis Carroll

26 November - 31 December 2016

The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh is delighted to announce Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll as its Christmas show this winter.  This much-loved, magical family tale continues The Lyceum’s recent Christmas literary tradition following record-breaking performances of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

“Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

When Alice sees a snappily dressed white rabbit holding a pocket watch, she knows today is not going to be like any other – an adventure is beginning!   Follow Alice down the rabbit hole and tumble into Wonderland - a place where everyone and everything seems to be stark raving mad and things keep getting ‘curiouser and curiouser’.

There are drinks to make you shrink smaller and cakes which make you grow taller. You’ll meet a mad March Hare, see a cat disappear, take advice from a caterpillar, and that’s just the animals! Will Alice ever be able to solve the Mad Hatter’s riddles or will it be ‘Off with her head!’ at the Queen of Hearts’ command?

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has been the best loved of all children’s stories for over 150 years. This Christmas The Lyceum will bring Lewis Carroll’s classic to life with a magical new production in a magnificent Victorian setting.

Full creative and casting announcements to follow.
