Olivier nominated Alice returns

First Published 6 April 2016, Last Updated 6 April 2016

One of this year’s Olivier Award nominated productions, Alice’s Adventures Underground, has announced it will return next spring for a limited five month run.

Guests will once again be invited down the rabbit hole for the immersive experience from April 2017 at Waterloo venue The Vaults.

Also returning alongside the Best Entertainment & Family Olivier Award nominated show is its children’s companion piece, Adventures In Wonderland for audiences aged five to 11-years-old.

Talking about the critically acclaimed hit’s return, Emma Brünjes, who produced the show alongside theatre company Les Enfants Terribles, said: “In 2015 we welcomed over 100,000 visitors to our hugely successful underground wonderland, proving that challenging traditional perceptions of theatre pays off. Our aim was to create an experience that combined storytelling with sensory immersion and could be enjoyed by all, and our Olivier nomination is testament to us having achieved that.

“We couldn’t be more excited about bringing these two shows back next year for those who missed out first time around, and for those who want to return for a second dose of madness.”

 The shows were originally programmed to mark the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel, with adult audiences in Alice’s Adventures Underground given the choice of choosing either a EAT ME or DRINK ME journey through a show packed with storytelling, live music and circus, while children were given the chance to interact with the story’s famous characters in Adventures In Wonderland.

Alice’s Adventures Underground, which was beaten to an Olivier Award this weekend by Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, received an outpour of critical acclaim when it premiered last summer, with the Observer describing it as “perfect for adults who have forgotten what it is to play”.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
