After a string of curtain calls, director Catherine Lomax paid tribute to the hard-working cast who had put together the show on a tight rehearsal schedule, and served up a delightful family show.

And members of the cast and crew mingled with fans and invited guests at a tea party to toast the continuing success of the production, with fingers crossed that it could be picked up by other venues for future performance.

Alice In Wonderland, based on the children’s classic by Lewis Carroll, continues over the holiday weekend with two performances at 1.30pm and 4.30pm today, Sunday, and tomorrow.

With book, music and lyrics by Catherine Lomax, choreographer Khiley Williams and musical director Phil Dennis, the show gives its audience the chance to chase the White Rabbit and join Alice as she explores a delightful world full of curious characters.
