IN the words of a certain White Rabbit don't be "late for an important date" for the UK Tour of Alice in Wonderland completes it's Southampton run at the Mayflower Theatre on Saturday ( April 22).
A stellar cast has come together on the Mayflower stage to present this magical production of Lewis Carroll's classic tale with Rachael Wooding guest starring as Alice.
Rachael is one of musical theatre’s most impressive talents. Last May she wowed the nation on Britain’s Got Talent with Simon Cowell proclaiming her rendition of ‘With You’ from Ghost as “the most beautiful version of the song” he had ever heard. Rachael went on to the live finals and her acclaimed audition has been viewed almost 9 million times on YouTube to date.
Rachael has played numerous lead parts, including the title role in the UK tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita and her West End credits include We Will Rock You, Hairspray and Jersey Boys.
Coronation Street and West End star Wendi Peters, much loved for her acclaimed portrayal of Cilla Battersby-Brown on the cobbles, plays Queen of Hearts and musical theatre favourite Dave Willetts, who rose to fame for playing the title role in the Phantom of the Opera, is White Rabbit.
Hailed by the New York Times as “inspirational”, Wonderland is an enchanting musical adaption of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, with a huge heart, a medley of magic and a whole lot of wonder. It is a timely and touching story of love in all its forms, an adventurous exploration of who we are, who we want to be and the power of everyday magic in our lives.
