mission overview


DOWN A RABBIT HOLE, THERE'S A WHOLE WORLD TO DISCOVER! 
 

When Ali spots a white rabbit lurking in the trees, they do what any logical person would do. They take a deep breath, remind themself that every great adventure requires a first step, and they follow the rabbit.

And what an adventure they have! After venturing down the rabbit hole, Ali follows the white rabbit through a world which is full of surprises. Meeting talking cats and caterpillars, drinking magic potions, attending tea parties, solving riddles and playing croquet, all in pursuit of this rushing rabbit. But where is it going in such a hurry?

"Down the Rabbit Hole" is a fast-paced, fun-filled re-telling of Lewis Carroll's novels Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Set outside and as you've never seen the story before, the play will be jam-packed with mad imagination and will be a fun introduction to live theatre and teamwork.

The script has been specially created for this age group and for working outdoors. There will be plenty of opportunities to bring the incredibly playful characters to life and the mission will culminate with an exciting matinee performance on the last day in front of a select parent audience. All children taking part will get to perform a speaking role.

"You're mad! You're bonkers! But I'll tell you a secret... all the best people are."

 

A GREAT INTRODUCTION TO THE MAGIC OF STORYTELLING AND OPEN-AIR THEATRE: PLAYFUL, INFORMAL AND RICH IN OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHILDREN TO CHALLENGE THEMSELVES.


Parents: this mission will run at the same time as ‘Makers Lab: Wonderland’, where children will work on the stage production of the play. Each mission is distinct but they will interact at set times throughout the week and will work together on the final 30 minute production.
