Alice in Weegieland--Tron, Glasgow

Have I gone mad?  I’m afraid so, but let me tell you something, the best people usually are. Read more …

Alice is bored!  All this talk of Brexit, Trump and yet another series of Celebrity Big Brother is beyond depressing.  And then if things weren't bad enough she has her ballet exam today and can't remember the difference between good toes and naughty toes!  

Alice decides to skip the exam and follow a mysterious white rabbit speaking an incomprehensible language (that's the Glesga-banter tae you and me) down a rabbit hole and finds herself awakening in…..

WEEGIELAND: a pantospherical wonderland populated with talking creatures, maniacal power-hungry queens and a fella who can get you a pirate copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Part 6 before its even been written yet.  

Will Alice ever want to leave the pantosphere?  Will the Mad Bad Cat in the Hatter ever find some patter that really matters?  Will the Queen of Hearts ever find something she loves more than another public beheading?

The critical consensus

The Tron panto shows that the most entertaining productions can be realised by a tiny creative team and an equally tiny cast – size really doesn’t matter. Truly terrific at the Tron yet again this year.

The quality of talent is exceptional and the song and dance numbers are worthy of any West End musical. I can't recommend Alice In Weegieland highly enough!

*****Natalie O'Donoghue, Broadway World, 06/12/2017

An enjoyable romp with a fine script and eclectic score.

Alice In Weegieland is a show that sadly loses its panto rhythm, long before it reaches the end of the story.
