The White Rabbit comes to Hale Park and Beaulieu with West End actor Toby Baddeley
AN open-air adventure featuring Alice’s White Rabbit will be performed this Easter at Hale Park near Fordingbridge and at Beaulieu Woodland.
The show has been created for primary school children and their families, and is billed as a musical version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland told from the point of view of the White Rabbit.
Starring West End actor Toby Baddeley as the rabbit and a local performer in the role of Alice, the audience
will follow the duo as they embark on their magical adventure.
The White Rabbit show has been created by the London Touring Players who have previously appeared at Beaulieu Abbey with A Christmas Carol and at Furzey Gardens with The Importance of Being Earnest.
London Touring Players spokesperson Abbey Wright said: “Hale Park isn’t open to the public very often and so it’s a special opportunity to see the magnificent gardens of this quintessential country house.
“The Beaulieu Woodland is stunning ancient woodland and it’s great fun watching the white rabbit disappear and reappear between the trees. So you can choose which spectacular setting you would like to watch the show in.”
“The show is packed with live music, songs, comedy and delights for the whole family.
“It runs just under an hour and you are on your feet following the White Rabbit on his adventure through the spectacular natural setting.
“The show is suitable for pushchairs and is open air all the time so is Covid secure.”
Hale will host The White Rabbit from 15th to 19th April with daily times 11am, 1.30pm, 2.45pm and 4pm.
The dates for Beaulieu are 20th-24th April, with the same times.
Tickets are £16 for adult and £12 for children, with family tickets available for £54.
