Steampunk Alice in Wonderland coming to Bristol

Rehearsals are gathering pace for a production of Alice in Wonderland... with a twist!

The young actors at ITV WEST Television Workshop are bringing a steampunk-themed family version of the classic tale to Bristol next week.

The show will be performed by a cast of more than 30 actors aged from 9 to 59.

It is suitable for all ages.

Alice is bored. Sitting on the riverbank with her Sister who has her head stuck in a book. Again.

Nothing exciting ever happens to Alice. Ever.

That is, until a sarcastic and frenetic White Rabbit appears with a waistcoat and a pocket watch, obsessing over how late he is. I mean, have you seen a rabbit with a watch before? Alice hasn't!

Then he rudely disappears down a rabbit hole...

Should Alice stay on the riverbank, bored out of her mind? Or follow him down into a utopia of Steampunk madness - with grinning cats, chaotic twins, mad tea parties and a crazy Queen who's lost some tarts?

Boredom loses. Curiosity wins. Welcome to Wonderland.
