Show 2011: Alice the Panto (Jan. 2011)

The production was loosely based on the classic Lewis Carroll "Alice in Wonderland". It had all of the usual characters, Alice, White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts, Cheshire Cat and the Duchess. This was our first production after moving to Saintes from Jonzac and was a great box office success, with a good response from a new audience, who joined in with the usual responses: "Oh no it isn't, Oh yes it is" etc. The plot was simple, Alice chases the White Rabbit and falls down his burrow into "Wonderland". She then meets the Cheshire Cat and the Duchess, eventually getting to the Mad Hatters Tea Party. If this was not enough, she then has to play the Queen of Hearts at croquet, whose favourite line is "Off with their heads". With the appearance of a Scottish Fairy Godmother and a few other extra characters, it was a great show.
