Flora and Jess might have a century between them, but with a bit of time bending and a magical world lying just beyond the mirror, they can be brought back together for a sensational adventure. Jabberwocky promises plenty of laughs, and a whole host of creatures from Carroll’s dark and delightful imagination, all encased within high-quality new musical theatre.
Susannah Pearse (The Stationmaster, The 45th Marvelous Chatterley Village Fete, Wonderland) writes the book and lyrics, teaming up with award-winning composer Rebecca Applin (Bully Boy with Sandi Toksvig, Much Ado About Nothing, Wind in the Willows), who creates the music.
The production is directed by Luke Sheppard, whose extensive credits include The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Age 13 3/4 at Leicester Curve, Next Fall at Southwark Playhouse and In the Heights at Southwark Playhouse and King's Cross Theatre. Jabberwocky features choreography by Heather Douglas and musical direction by Tom Turner.
With a cast of YMT performers taking to the stage, Jabberwocky is the exciting new musical that brings larger-than-life characters to the stage – but, beware the Jabberwock my son! The production runs at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace for a limited season from 7 April to 14 April 2018.
Running time: TBC
Age recommendation: No under 5's
