HOW would you like to be one of three winners of four tickets to attend the 7pm performance on Friday, December 6, of the new KickstArt panto, Alice in Wonderland, at Durban’s Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre?

For details on how to win this great prize see the end of this story.

Alice in Wonderland, a spectacular and inventive panto written and directed by Steven Stead, runs in Durban from November 29 to January 5. It offers a glorious array of zany, topsy-turvy characters, including colourful puppets; as well as magical scenery, vibrant costumes, topical jokes and toe-tapping songs.

Designed by Greg King, the show stars Georgina Mabbett as Alice, with Liesl Coppin as the Queen of Hearts, Belinda Henwood as the White Queen, Mthokozisi Zulu as the White Rabbit, Blessing Xaba as Nurse Nora Knowalot, Lyle Buxton as the Mad Hatter, Roland Perold as the Knave of Hearts, and Iain (Ewok) Robinson and James Cuningham as Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee.

The story was originally a novel written in 1865 by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll). It is about the adventures of a young girl, Alice, who accidentally falls down a rabbit hole into a mystical fantasy world of quirky characters and bizarre animals.

The tale is full of riddles and conundrums accessible to both adult and children readers and is one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre of its time.

An array of quotes from Alice have become absorbed into popular parlance. Some of the best loved ones include: “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast”; “Curiouser and curiouser!” and “We’re all mad here”.

Prices for the pantomime range in price from R150 to R250 for adults. Prices for children, students and pensioners range in price from R120 to R200. Tickets for preview performances cost R140 throughout. Booking is at Computicket.
