After a sold-out run in 2021, as well as seven Dora nominations and two wins (Outstanding Performance by an Individual & the Jon Kaplan Audience Choice Award), Alice in Wonderland will make a spectacular return to Guild Park before touring to theatres across the province.

This production boasts the talents of the Dora-nominated returning ensemble: Cayne Kitagawa, Muhaddisah, and Michael Williamson.

'After a sold-out run and critical acclaim, I'm delighted to bring back Alice in Wonderland and to give even more of our community a chance to see this spectacular show.' -Tyler J. Seguin
When Alice follows a mysterious White Rabbit, she finds herself in Wonderland, a world where the everyday rules are turned upside down. On her journey, she meets strange characters including the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and Tweedledum & Tweedledee, but it's her encounter with the Queen of Hearts whose cries of "Off with her head!" make Alice wonder if she'll ever find her way home again.
This fast-paced production brings Wonderland to life in a swirl of sound, colour and imagination. Whether it's trading riddles with the Mock Turtle or battling the fearsome Jabberwock, this show will leave everyone with a smile on their face and curiosity in their hearts!
'Alice in Wonderland is a production made in Scarborough for a Scarborough audience and I'm so pleased to be bringing it back to Guild Park and also sharing it with other communities this summer.’ -Helen Juvonen, Co-Artistic Director
