One of my absolute favorite childhood tales is Alice in Wonderland, the story is so incredibly beautiful and filled to the brim with rich imagery and imagination it has captivated the hearts and minds of many since its publication, young and old and will continue to do so for many centuries to come I am sure.
So I am so excited to share with all of you that Canal Walk will bringing this magical spectacular musical version of Alice in Wonderland, what child does not enjoy a good story and music right? But this is one I am sure will be thoroughly enjoyed by both you and your child, I know mine have thoroughly enjoyed a few of Canal Walks previous shows and I just know that this one will be no different.
Lewis Carroll’s much-loved classic, Alice in Wonderland, returns in a spectacular original musical by award winning duo, Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer, who have  presented to critical and public acclaim on stages across Europe, America and in South Africa. 

Alice in Wonderland is a celebration of fantasy and adventure. Audiences will be enchanted by a Garden of Singing Flowers; learn lessons from a Caterpillar; have a mad-cap tea-party with the Mad Hatter, The March-Hare and The Dormouse and many other unforgettable characters like Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum, The White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts. This winter, families can escape for an hour into the magical world of enchantment and wonder, and are encouraged to dress up too. 

A talented, star-studded cast, together with breath-taking sets, magnificent costumes and numerous beautiful puppets, will bring Alice in Wonderland to life:

What I love even more is that Canal Walk uses these shows as a platform to create awareness and raise funds for various charities with a percentage of  proceeds from this production going towards the LEAP Science and Maths Schools initiative which I think is just not only a wonderful initiative to support but also a way to encourage the minds of our future and current generations. 

Extra support for this worthy cause will also be generated through the building of a giant mosaic made out of tins of food.  To celebrate Madiba’s legacy, members of the public are encouraged to help transform the Centre Court at Canal Walk Shopping Centre with the building of this artwork on 18 July 2017.  Theater goers and shoppers are invited to donate-a-Rhodes Quality can to the cause, by dropping off one or more tins of food at the Toys R Us store in Canal Walk.
