Chapterhouse Theatre Company presents Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Chapterhouse Theatre Company presents Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – July 2018

The Walled Garden at Powerscourt Estate and Gardens was the beautiful setting for the return of Chapterhouse Theatre to Ireland this weekend, for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon of Mad Hatter madness with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

The atmosphere was wonderful with families of all generations spread out on picnic blankets, smiling and laughing, with the odd shower of rain that no one minded. This new telling of an old classic, with songs and puppetry, is a trademark of Chapterhouse Theatre and its brilliant cast of young actors. The show itself was very funny and engaging and watching Alice and her adventure in such a beautiful setting made it impossible to not be taken away and drawn into the story telling. Kids were enthralled to be invited to the Mad Hatters Tea Party and roared with laughter at some of characters.

The interval allows time for a visit to Avoca to buy snacks, drinks or ice creams. Its an incredibly relaxing setting and I would highly recommend outside theatre productions as an introduction to any new theatre goers. The Walled Garden is an intimate, safe and welcoming environment and included in the ticket price is free entry to the world class Powerscourt Gardens.

Make sure you come and see them next summer – a really lovely afternoon going down the rabbithole with Alice.
