Alice’s Wonderland is an original musical commissioned by Malaysian award-winning production group Cempaka Performing Arts Company. Alice enters a magical world through her mirror and follows the White Rabbit into Wonderland, where she meets the strange twins Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, an eccentric Caterpillar, the grinning Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatta.
When Her Majesty of Rock, the Queen of Hearts, learns of Alice’s arrival, she is immediately threatened and plots Alice’s demise in a treacherous plan involving the deadly creature, the Jabberwocky. But Alice finds hope when she encounters the White Queen, who enlightens Alice of the ancient prophecy that she will save Wonderland.
Will the Jabberwocky devour all? Will the Queen of Hearts have their heads? Will the Mad Hatta finally finish his tea and will Alice ever return to London?
