Mercury Theatre today announces the full cast for their summer production of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, reimagined by Olivier award-winning playwright Mike Kenny with music by Ivan Stott.
Emma Earle directs Ruby Ablett as Alice, Miiya Alexandra (Dora/Doormouse), Hannah Azuonye (Carol-Louise/ Caterpillar/Cheshire Cat), Rosalind Ford (Mum/Duchess), Natasha Karp (Queen of Hearts/Ms Head), Tom Moores (White Rabbit/Mr Buck), Jamie Noar (Tweedledee/King of Hearts), Mike Slader (Harry/Mad Hatter) and Loris Scarpa (Tweedledum/March Hare).
The production opens on Wednesday 3 August at the Mercury Theatre and runs until Sunday 14 August, with previews from Friday 29 July.
Creative Director Ryan McBryde said today: “We can’t wait to jump down the rabbit hole into the fantastical world of Wonderland this summer. Director Emma Earle has a fantastic track record with her award-winning, female-led theatre company Pins and Needles, who are best known for their bold and imaginative adaptations of children’s books including Raymond Briggs’ classics Father Christmas and The Bear. We’re delighted to welcome a multi-talented cast of actor-musicians including the wonderful Mike Slader and Rosalind Ford last seen in the Mercury’s The Comedy of Errors.”
