Alice in Wonderland West End show coming to Dubai

Fancy a trip to a wacky land filled with the Cheshire Cat, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and many more? It's time to head to the QE2.

Alice in Wonderland is coming to the Theatre by QE2 between Tuesday April 9 and Thursday April 18, offering a West End show that will transform the theatre into a wonderland the whole family can enjoy.

The story follows a seven-year-old Alice sitting with her sister, bored. She then notices a white rabbit with a pocket watch run past, which she follows only to end up in a corridor filled with doors. She opens the door and finds herself in a garden. Better known in this instance as the QE2 stage.

Expect all of the cast to make a grand appearance, including the crazy Mad Hatter, the nasty Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and many more.

Don’t worry, you won’t be late for the very important dates, as tickets are on sale on Monday (Friday 11). The show costs Dhs150 for adults, and Dhs120 for kids aged 12 and below.

If you’ve always wondered if you could keep up a conversation with The Mad Hatter himself, guests will also have the chance to join him and his friends in one of his crazy tea parties, before or after the show.

The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party will feature “Eat Me” and “Drink Me” bites along with quirky interactions, all for Dhs130 for adults and Dhs65 for kids 12 and below.

Miss the party? Not to worry, as further down the line on Friday April 19, The QE2 will be throwing a Alice’s Easter Wonderland Brunch, filled with a line-up for egg-themed activities.

Little ones can expect Easter egg hunts, egg and spoon races, egg painting and an entire Easter-themed buffet dedicated to them.

On the other hand, adults can look forward to a selection of free-flowing beverages, spit-roasted spring lamb with all the trimmings, to a load of chocolate delights.

Better yet, for more tea-time antics, the Queen’s Grill will be hosting the Queen of Hearts After-noon Tea, from Thursday April 18 until Sunday April 21.

The special tea will feature a selection of “Eat Me” finger sandwiches, melt-in-the-mouth scones, Queen of Hearts Tarts, “Drink Me” fresh fruit shooters, pastries, cakes and much more.

Alice’s wonderland seems to be taking over Dubai, as Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE will be transforming its venue into the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party this weekend (Saturday February 9).

The themed-brunch fun doesn’t stop there, as Atlantis The Palm’s Cirque de Cuisine is coming up at the end of February, and this time its bringing a South American carnival to town.

It's time to fiesta.
