Steve Hewlett and the cast from Alice In Wonderland

It’s panto time! No, you haven’t misread. Easter panto is the latest thing. A spectacular all-star show for all the family to enjoy. It’s a wonder no-one has thought of it before.

It made its début at The Grove Theatre, Dunstable, last year and delighted young audiences.

Producers, Magic Beans, who stage the venue’s dazzling Christmas shows, are back with another great panto.

Prepare yourself for magic, music and mischief in Alice in Wonderland from next Friday, April 18, to April 21.

The classic children’s story of Alice in Wonderland focuses on a young girl, Alice, who accidentally falls down a rabbit hole one day and enters a strange world full of mysterious creatures.

As Alice makes her way through this peculiar realm, she meets a host of wonderful characters including a Cheshire cat with a huge grin, a mesmerising caterpillar and a mad hatter!

Not everyone in this world is inviting and Alice soon runs into a spot of bother with the ruthless Queen of Hearts. Will she be able to escape?

Alice in Wonderland is a fantastic blend of pantomime and fairytale, magic and illusion, enchanting sets and costumes – and all the laughs you’d expect from panto.

The show features the amazing ventriloquist, Steve Hewlett, as Tweedledee along with his sidekick, Arthur Lager, as Tweedledum.

Steve shot to fame on ITV1’s Britain’s Got Talent with his puppet versions of Simon Cowell and Sinita.

Legendary magician, Paul Daniels, along with his lovely wife, Debbie McGee, will bring his unique style of comedy and magic to the show.

The double act will be playing the King of Hearts and the White Rabbit.

Jasette Amos and Leon Craig return to the Grove Theatre after having wowed audiences over Christmas, playing Fairy Bowbells and Sarah the Cook in Dick Whittington.

They will be playing the Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts!

Expect more wacky wigs, crazy outfits from Leon and infectious laughter from Jasette.

The show continues to tour after Dunstable. For more information go to
