Wyldwood Theatre Company will return to the stage this September for their eighth production, ‘Alice In Wonderland’. The 17-strong local cast with ages ranging from 14 to 28 have produced, directed and designed this adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s loved story. Colour will rush on to the Kirkgate Centre stage on the 1st and 2nd of September, with original costumes, set and music that will appeal to all but especially the mad.


Bored of her stuffy sister Lorina who embodies the Victorian ideals of childhood, the young Alice is more than excited by the appearance of an anxious white rabbit who exclaims that he is late. After falling down a rabbit hole after the worrisome creature, Alice is transported to a Wonderland of tyrannical monarchs, fantastical creatures and talking flowers. Throughout the play, Alice struggles to keep her sanity, whilst shrinking and growing around strangers who challenge her logic and threaten to chop off her head.


The company was founded in 2014, with the aim of producing performances of a professional standard from a group of young amateur actors. They have continued to produce and perform seven shows, with the cast changing and evolving over the four years. This will be the second time that the company has explored Lewis Carroll and his work. ‘The Dream Child’,

an original play performed in March 2016, followed the life of Lewis Carroll, also known


as Charles Lutwidge Dodgson and the close relationship between his life and his fiction. The company has produced four other original plays: ‘The Blood Between Us’ being inspired by the poetry of Christina Rossetti, ‘Ivenway’ by the poem ‘The White Horse’ by Frances Grant, ‘Revolution’ by Charles Dicken’s novel ‘The Old Curiosity Shop’ and ‘Throne’ by the classical Greek and Roman Gods. The company has also adapted Jane Austen’s novel ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and William Shakespeare’s play ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’.


The performances will feature the music of Owen Evans, a former cast member whose scores have brilliantly captured the atmosphere of the company’s previous plays. Costumes for ‘Alice In Wonderland’ are also currently being designed and made by a talented team of young dressmakers amongst the cast.


Performances are on the 1st and 2nd September at the Kirkgate Centre Cockermouth.
