Adventures in Wonderland Review

Imagine being led into a magic maze by a White Rabbit,
who then asks you to drink a potion
and follow him to to meet a crazy Queen
and a disappearing Cheshire Cat...

Adventures in Wonderland, the critically acclaimed, 
multi-sensory experience, from the award-winning 
children's theatre company Les Petits, 
returns from 13 May 2017 to 3 September 2017 
and it is an experience not to be missed. 

Set inside the mysterious tunnels underneath Waterloo station,
a magical and weird maze transports children and adults
to the crazy underground world of Alice.

Aimed at children from 5 to 10 years old,
this is a theatrical experience not to be missed,
as I'm sure the Kid would tell you
after attending the press morning.

Do not expect to find seats or 'Please be quiet' signs; 
this is immersive, interactive thespian art 
where the spectators follow the story's journey  
and enrich it by participating in it. 

The journey begins in an antique-filled room, 
where Alice invites us to find her in the Wonderland. 

On entering this magic world, a choice has to be made: 
the White Rabbit invites the audience to choose 
between 'Eat Me' or 'Drink Me', 
a choice that will determine one's unique path into the maze.

The maze is an immense multi-room set, 
decorated with exquisite details in such an imaginative way 
that the Kid kept asking me if we were near the centre of the Earth {!}

But what really steals the show 
and makes this one of the best theatrical experiences for children 
are the performances by the very talented actors 
{our favourite was the capricious Queen 
and her wicked sense of humour}. 

In a nutshell: an unforgettable experience
for children and adults alike
{and, hurry up, tickets are flying fast}.
