Teatro Vivo bring Adventures in Wonderland to The Story Museum. 25 June 2013.

Thursday 27th June

Adventures in Wonderland, Teatro Vivo’s imaginative and interactive promenade performance of Lewis Carroll’s Alice books, will be in Oxford from 3-7 July.

A sell-out success at the 2012 Greenwich Children’s Festival, this curiouser and curiouser interactive journey comes to life in the atmospheric spaces of The Story Museum. There is no Alice in the production – the audience themselves are the ones to fall down the rabbit hole. They will follow the cast around the building to discover scenes, riddles and installations relating to Alice’s adventure.

Everyone is invited to become a part of the Wonderland resistance, run your own Caucus Race, and help Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum prepare for the battle of their lives. Explore the darker world of Lewis Carroll’s imagination, and encounter some of his less well-known characters: meet the oyster who gets eaten by the walrus – and you might end up being eaten for dinner yourself…

Victors can participate as much or as little as they like, and tea will be served.

This is a rare opportunity to step inside Oxford’s new centre of story in the making, and to become part of a unique and exciting show.
