Alice through the Looking Glass comes to Skipton Town Hall

Quantum Theatre presents a brand new adaptation of Lewis Carroll's timeless classic, Through the Looking Glass, for summer 2017.


With live music and the full array of Carroll's fantastical characters, this lively new adaptation follows Alice's adventures in the looking-glass world she enters through the mirror above her drawing-room fireplace.

Adapted and directed by Michael Whitmore, the play charts the enchanting, fabulous and wonderful world created by Lewis Carroll, retaining all its quirky British charm, classic characters and comedic poems in a true theatrical treat for all the family.

 The performance takes place in the Concert Hall in Skipton Town Hall on Friday July 18 at 2.30pm and will make use of the Town Hall's new raked seating.

The story follows her weird and wonderful adventures across the board until she is finally crowned a queen and along the way she encounters some of Carroll's most memorable and enduring characters, among them Tweedledum and Tweedledee, The Lion and the Unicorn and the Red and the White Queen.

The piece is filled with many of Carroll's finest nonsense poems, the best-known being the Walrus and the Carpenter and the Jabberwock which are still much quoted today.

Tickets are £7.50 each and are available from the Tourist Information Centre at Skipton Town Hall, on Skipton High Street, which is open from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday. Phone orders are also welcome - call 01756 792 809.
