The Australian Shakespeare Company is performing Alice in Wonderland at the Capitol Theatre from 24 December 2023 to 21 January 2024. Tickets for a family of four will cost you about $110.

The Capital Theatre (owned by RMIT) was renovated in 2014 with a grand reopening in 2019. It is a gorgeous theatre with lecture-style seating and a captivating ceiling created by 33,000 plaster crystals lit by thousands of coloured lights. The ceiling was a great source of reflection and wonder as we waited for the show to begin.

The show was high-energy and very interactive. The actors were constantly getting the children to call out answers and point them in the direction. I wasn't expecting a pantomime-style show and found it quite cringy, to begin with, but in the end, decided to embrace the cringe and enjoy the show. Our children (aged 5 and 7) enjoyed it for the most part and definitely got into the excitement of the show as it went on. They loved shouting out answers and found some of the dialogue very funny. The show went on for about an hour and a half, which was definitely long enough as it was very loud, as the actors were shouting most of their lines.

The White Rabbit and Alice were firm favourites with our family.

I would recommend it as a fun outgoing for families, but children over the age of eight would probably not enjoy it as much as younger ones.
