Alice in Wonderland

19 OCTOBER – 7 NOVEMBER 2015

Essential Surrey

Surrey Advertiser

Our second Autumn Season celebrated the 150th Anniversary of the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll.

In so many ways Alice really embodies everything that GSC stands for: a unique adventure; seeing the world with a new perspective; challenging expectations and of course having enormous, inventive fun.

To raise awareness of the connection between Guildford and Lewis Carroll, we created a multi-venue immersive experience that took audiences from St Mary’s Church (where Carroll preached) to the Museum (next to his family home The Chestnuts) and finally to the Castle Keep.

2668 people, young and old, fell down the rabbit hole during our 3 week run. The 55 performances met with a 97% sell-out rate which was a terrific way to round off what had been GSC’s most popular year to date.

 

‘The production is inventive and interactive. We are drawn into Alice’s world and for 90 minutes I re-discovered my inner child.’

‘Oh my goodness – have just got back from Wonderland and I am totally exhausted!! What an amazing, fast paced, interactive, overwhelming brilliant adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic. I still haven’t recovered from the March Hare appearing from under the table at my feet!’

‘ [GSC] They have become the town’s treasure – the jewel in the Guildfordian crown.’ Essential Surrey
