Alice in Winterland
Alice has always been brought up to believe in wonder but her life takes an unexpected turn when she is sent to live with her stern auntie… until she is visited by a White Rabbit and propelled on a quest to save Winterland!
Follow Alice to the magically curious world of Winterland, a world of ice and imagination, of mad hatters and cruel queens, strong-minded dodos and friendly knights. A world inhabited by the mysterious Bandersnatch and the terrible Jabberwock, a world that lies in the riffle of a pack of cards or in the lines across a chess board, where the impossible becomes possible…
This dazzling festive new stage production is based on Lewis Carroll’s timeless books, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Step through the Looking Glass with Alice this Christmas and join her on this glorious adventure.
The production features professional actors alongside members of the Rose Youth Theatre.

The Railway Children
If ever there was a “timeless” classic tale, this is surely it. There have been many stage adaptations of Edith Nesbit’s The Railway Children and we have chosen for our Christmas production Mike Kenny’s version, which was used for the now famous presentation at Waterloo Station and later at Kings Cross. This is the version with adults playing the children, but do not let this deter you, since all theatre needs is imagination and, as Bobbie says in the very opening: “Do you remember? We were the Railway Children”.
Come and enjoy this charming and exquisite piece of our literary heritage.
