This years CBeebies panto has finally been revealed! It’s none other than Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland!
Cat Sandion (CBeebies presenter) will play Alice and Justin Fletcher (Many kids’ TV shows including Something Special and Shaun the Sheep) will play the Queen of Hearts. The Welsh choir Only Kids Allowed will also play a part in it.
We have a short synopsis:
The classic novel by Lewis Carroll has been specially adapted for the CBeebies audience, with high adventure, aerial acrobatics, laugh-out-loud moments and catchy songs featuring throughout.
Alice’s story starts at a riverside family picnic where she is encouraged to use her imagination by her family. The result is a playful journey through Wonderland, where Alice meets a colourful succession of characters and learns how to make believe.
