Escapade Theatre presents Alice in Wonderland, The Musical, at the (Teatre Gaudí, Barcelona). This is perhaps our most ambitious project to date and, as you can imagine, follows the adventures of little Alice Liddell as she falls down the rabbit hole into Wonderland. But this is no ordinary Alice: this is a Steam Punk Musical; a mix between Punk and Victoriana, which requires very elaborate costumes and props for the 11 strong cast, as well as original music, choreography and design.
Why do we need your pledge?
To be able to produce this show, apart from the huge amounts of talent, hard work, imagination and enthusiasm we already have, we are going to need a little injection of funds towards the extra expenses of props, costume, mics and online promotion-(Bums on seats and all that!)
We need to make costumes for 28, very extravagant, characters and supply them with the elements needed to help Alice shrink, grow, eat and drink, among other things!
The money we are hoping to raise is solely for costume (1.431€), props (800€), mics (1.000€) and promotion (725€).
Just reading this far deserves a prize but if on top of that you become a patron we will build a monument to you! And with that philosophy in mind we’ve thought hard about how to reward your generosity. We want the rewards to be useful as well as being a nice memento.
So, you will get tickets for the show, MP3 players, mugs, books and other souvenirs from the play that are really useful. We will be looking forward to present you with your rewards when you come to see the show.
Here is a short description of each reward:
The poster is a mosaic made up of tiny reproductions of all the images taken from the oficial photo session and “making of” sessions. A beautiful way to see the whole creation process in one image.
The playing card bottle opener: the same size as a playing card, very resistant and practical. Cheers!
The Pen Drive contains all the exclusive images and videos of the production and can be put to personal use after. Images to treasure!
Everything started with the McMillan original Alice publication, so here is your own personal copy of the original story by Lewis Carroll in English. How original!
As in all Escapade shows the soundtrack is bespoke. What better souvenir than the beautiful original soundtrack, all yours in this pocket size MP3 player with 2Gb memory SD.
Gorgeous Heart shaped tea mug with the show's image printed on the side. Perfect for your own Mad Tea Party!
What's Alice in Wonderland without a pack of cards? These are your special gold covered pack of playing cards...thanks for shining through!
Your own personal T-Shirt with the play's image printed on the front. Got the T-Shirt!
Amazing original Steampunk theme painting by Albert Penado of Alice in Wonderland. One of it's kind!
The show is on from 12th -29th May. Below you can see links for the company and the theatre.
Escapade Theatre was founded by Sue Flack and Caspar in 1997, in Barcelona. Our aim is to produce top quality, professional theatre, which entertains, provokes and at the same time lays bare the pitiful state of the human condition, all with a dose of the satire and dark humour so customary of the British.
Reviews of Escapade’s previous productions
Dinner For One
“A fantastic comedy”
GUIA DEL OCIO
¡Marvellous! A great way to spend an evening, unusual, fun, tender and evocative. The actors are sublime”
“Interpretation qualities rarely found in this neck of the woods”
“Comparable to the great Peter Sellers. Don’t miss it.”
SALIR SALIR MADRID
“Wonderful overtones of white humour... an overdose of laughter”
Decadence (Grec 98, Festival del Sur 99 y Nau Ivanow 2014
“A splendid text but it is, without doubt, one of those plays where not understanding English is only a relative obstacle because the performances of Caspar and Sue Flack, also director of the piece, are so extraordinarily funny, so perfectly English, with facial mime that is so understandable and so comic, that it deserves to be seen just for that.”
“They manage to fill the stage with objects, music and silences, with authentic theatrical magic…An elegant production of remarkable simplicity and rivetting performances. A rare pearl that is worth cultivating.”
Metamorphosis (Grec Festival, 99)
“With few elements, Escapade Theatre Company have treated us, yet again, to an unusual opportunity for jaw ache. Don’t miss it. This is serious theatre to laugh yourself silly to.”
“The most seen show in Grec 99 in the first ten days (93% attendance).”
L´Inspector (The Government Inspector) (Teatre Tantarantana, 2001)
“Sue Flack is a director with very clear ideas…It’s the best show that can be seen in Barcelona at this moment.”
“A feast of observation, a splendid representation, an excellent treatment of the text, the absurd is served up here for your enjoyment.”
