Travel down the rabbit hole and join Alice, one of literature’s most beloved heroines, in her madcap adventures, here on the Central Coast for 10 shows, commencing on Tuesday January 14.

The Gosford Music Society production will feature updated songs from Disney’s thrilling animated motion picture, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland Jr. is a fast-paced take on the classic tale.

The ever-curious Alice’s journey begins innocently enough as she chases the White Rabbit. Her adventures become increasingly more strange as she races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game!

Roles are plentiful, including three Cheshire Cats and dozens of other wonderfully wacky characters, providing plentiful opportunities to showcase students of all different musical skill levels. A chorus of kids playing in the park, rock lobsters, talking fish, royal cardsmen, unbirthday partiers, as well as a group of mean-girl flowers, allows for a highly expandable cast size.

There is a Meet & Greet with the cast after every matinee performance. Come on down and say How Dye Do.

The productions will be held at Laycock Street Theatre in North Gosford. Tickets are reportedly selling fast and are available via the GMS website or at Laycock Street Theatre directly.

Gosford Music Society (GMS) was established in 1947 as a volunteer organisation focused on the development and promotion of all forms of Musical Theatre across the Central Coast Community. Details about GMS and their upcoming education and theatre productions can be found at their website here.
