What the Press Said:

“Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer’s Alice in Wonderland musical is a triumph…visually spectacular with puppetry, witty costumes and knock-out performances by the cast who are renowned musical theatre artists. This Canal Walk/Abrahamse-Meyer is the best that I have seen. Each year, it gets better. Marcel’s musical adaptation and Fred’s book adaptation – pack a ton into one hour” THE CAPE ROBYN

“Whether costumes make or break a production could well be a subject for an Arts Phd thesis. Certainly, Marcel Meyer’s whacky costumes add magic to this delightful Alice in Wonderland. These together with Fred Abrahamse’s practical, picture book, garden sets of outsized toadstool, fancy flowers and flats, skilfully manoeuvred into place for scene changes, took a packed audience right into Alice’s wonderland” STAGE AND SCREEN
