The news about Wonderland just keeps getting better and better. And it’s nearly time to see it in Derry.
West End rising star and Wicked leading lady, Michelle Pentecost has been confirmed to play Alice at the Millennium Forum in Derry on the UK tour of WONDERLAND, as well as Alternate Alice / Mad Hatter at other venues. Essex-born Michelle has recently appeared as Eva Péron in Evita as well as Elphaba in Wicked in the West End and in the UK tour of Annie.
Hailed by UK critics as ‘fabulous, fast paced, colourful and lively with a superb original musical score and a simply outstanding cast’, WONDERLAND is delighting audiences in the UK aged 8-80. It’s an enchanting musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, with a huge heart, a medley of magic and a whole lot of wonder. It is a timely and touching story of love and an adventurous exploration of who we are, who we want to be and the power of everyday magic in our lives.
The stellar cast also includes West End star, accomplished actress and acclaimed singer Wendi Peters, who is well known for her portrayal of Cilla Battersby-Brown in Coronation Street, as the Queen of Hearts, and musical theatre star Dave Willetts, well known for playing the title role in Phantom of the Opera, as the White Rabbit.
Wonderland performs at the Millennium Forum from Tues 21st to Sat 25th March. Tickets are now available from the Box Office. Telephone 71 264455 or visit www.millenniumforum.co.uk for bookings.
