Cast announced for this year's Lancaster 'Play in the Park' Alice in Wonderland

The cast has been announced for this year's outdoor walkabout 'Play in the Park' Alice in Wonderland.

'Alice in Wonderland' will be The Dukes' production in Williamson Park in Lancaster this summer.

The cast, announced on Tuesday, will include Eve Pereira (A Little Princess; Theatre By The Lake) as Alice, Helen Longworth (The Archers, Doctors; BBC, Coronation Street, Emmerdale; ITV) who returns to the Dukes' park show after starring as Baloo in 2022’s Jungle Book, as the Queen of Hearts; Katie Ball (Sing! On Tour; Universal Studios Japan) as the Hatter, Ross Telfer (A Midsummer Night’s Dream; Everyman Theatre Company, The Ugly Duckling, A Christmas Carol; Everyman Cheltenham) as the Caterpillar, Kira Hayes (Old Firm Friends; Seven Dials Playhouse) as the Hare and Rebecca Phythian (Aladdin, Jack and the Beanstalk, Sleeping Beauty; Salford Arts Theatre) as the White Rabbit.

The show will invite audiences of all ages to immerse themselves in the fantastical world of Lewis Carroll's timeless classic. 

Join Alice as she navigates through a topsy-turvy wonderland filled with curious characters, nonsensical riddles, and enchanting landscapes. From the mischievous Cheshire Cat to the tyrannical Queen of Hearts, every moment is a delightful dance with the extraordinary.

"I'm delighted to announce the return of our outdoor play in the park, Alice In Wonderland," said Chris Lawson, new CEO at The Dukes.

"We have a fantastic creative team working on this production and we're excited to present what will be a show full of fantastic family fun. As the new CEO at the Dukes, this will be my first time working with the Dukes' team on the Play in the Park, but I'm excited to see what we create.

"The team here are full of enthusiasm and excitement as we start the journey on creating another adventure in the beautiful Williamson Park this summer. These shows always sell fast with the popular weekend dates always going first so grab your tickets quick!"

Alice in Wonderland runs on Tuesdays to Sundays from July 19 to August 25 at 7.15pm.

Tickets must be booked in advance. Group bookings negotiable, please contact The Dukes Box Office on 01524 598500 or email tickets@dukeslancaster.org
