“The vivid, cartoonish set provides an eye-catching backdrop for the parade of eccentric, vibrantly costumed characters. Singable songs, live music and simple audience participation punctuate the physical action and help keep the children attentive.” The Herald Sun
“It was endearing, nostalgic and charming: as grown-ups, in a setting as seemingly faraway and majestic as Rippon Lea, we were whisked away to a child’s world – that place we lived in decades ago – and through Alice, we were thrown back into that fantasy land where imagination ruled.” Laneway Magazine
“Enchanting …the audience loved every minute of it” The Age
“Marvellous entertainment for adults and children. A great holiday treat. The sets and costumes are excellent.” The Australian
