4TH JULY – 2ND SEPTEMBER 2000
MAGDALEN COLLEGE SCHOOL GROUNDS
A charming and timeless children’s classic was brought to life with ‘an irreverent mix of slapstick humour and surreal wit’. Audience members left their seats to follow Alice’s journey into the curiouser and curiouser dreamlike world of Lewis Carroll’s tale.
“One thing is for sure – the acting is exemplary.”
“In a stunning new production of Alice Through the Looking Glass the Creation Theatre has managed brilliantly to re-create the magic in a show that was enjoyed by children and adults alike with an irreverent mix of slapstick humour and surreal wit.
…This was a production not bounded by limitations of scene, time or space – but flitting from scene to scene in a ‘curiouser and curiouser’ fashion, just like a dream. The cast throughout was first-class. Alice, played with child-like wonder by Katie Foster-Barnes, was top-notch as was Michael Everest as the White Knight.
…This was a truly magical production which captured the essence of dreams and awoke a sense of memory and feeling forever linked with childhood. This was not a show for children, but one where we became children.”
