Alice in Wonderland

Yesterday I went to see Alice in Wonderland at the Botanical Gardens. My favourite character was the chesire cat (pictured) not because he was the best actor really but because he acted like a cat.
I also liked Robert Jarman's 'white rabbit' and 'mad hatter' - white rabbit is pictured.
It was a larger than life musical pantomime and there were lots of young children in the audience. It was nice to see the children laughing and joining in when they could. But it meant we, as childless adults, were reminded that we didn't have them.
Alice really looked the part and I liked the scene where she was about to be beheaded by the queen and stomped her feet in anger. A couple of times, though, she got a bit overexcited and screamed out her lines incomprehensibly.
Overall, however, it was a great production. High energy and lots of fun.
God Bless you all
