Alice in Wonderland Live on Stage at HOTA Gold Coast! Giveaway!


The New York SMASH HIT production of Lewis Carroll’s timeless classic, Alice in Wonderland comes to life on stage at the Gold Coast Home of the Arts (HOTA) this Sunday 15 July.
Tumble down the rabbit hole and join Alice, one of literature’s most beloved heroines, in her adventures through Wonderland.





With the cast being summoned from across the country and led by Queensland’s first lady of theatre in Karen Crone, as the Mad Hatter (in a casting twist similar to that of the Cheshire Cat’s smile), this stage production features incredible costumes and sets and is a must-see for children and adults alike – for everyone who loves one of the world’s most-read stories!
'You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.'
-The Mad Hatter-

Creating Wonderland is NIDA and WAAPA graduate Georgina Walker (Alice), Mamma Mia star James Shaw (White Rabbit), veteran of stage and screen Simon Burvill-Holmes (Queen of Hearts/Cheshire Cat), Karen Crone (Mad Hatter), Oliver Lacey (March Hare), Matilda-award nominated Jackson McGovern (Dormouse/Caterpillar), Queensland stage star Justine Anderson (Tweedle Dum) and Sarah Whale (Tweedle Dee), together with a handful of brilliant puppeteers, who bring to life over 20 unforgettable characters using their ingenious stagecraft and limitless possibilities of imagination.


Australian Producer, Ethan Walker, began this production at the Brisbane Powerhouse in early 2016 and it has since enjoyed sold-out runs all over the world, including in New York & Los Angeles, where it became the highest-grossing show at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood for the last five years. He said it was one of the most universal of all stage stories.
 “We tell this extraordinary story through actors and puppets. There is something magical about seeing a life size puppet come to life. You truly believe it’s the White Rabbit and forget there’s a Puppeteer controlling him. Wonderland is a very enchanting place, and that enchantment should not be lost when transitioned onto the stage.” 



“We have massive mushroom props that the Actors use throughout the performance to tell the story. In one scene the Caterpillar is sitting on a large mushroom, and in the next scene that same mushroom turns into a tree trunk table for the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. It’s truly magical to watch. We also have a highly respected Australian Actress, Karen Crone who plays the Mad Hatter."

"I’ve never heard of a production before who has cast a female into the role of the Hatter. There would be no point in producing a show that was a cookie cutter of every other Alice in Wonderland production. We needed to think outside the box to ensure that this production would be extra special, while at the same time staying true to the essence of Lewis Carroll’s work.”


The ‘entirely bonkers’ story of Alice in Wonderland has delighted the world for generations & this newest incarnation will continue that tradition – dazzling family members of all ages!
