We are very excited to be using some of Hawkes Bay’s most prominent and well known actors in our production, plus local talent. From Drama teachers, to Director/Actors, to professionals, tertiary students of theatre/film, and younger students talent as well.
You will love the Centennial Gardens, which is well suited to The Real Theatre Company’s production. Do check it out as it’s a pure delight.

What is the Difference Between Promenade and Walkabout Theatre?
What is the difference between Promenade and Walkabout Theater? Well the difference is that in Promenade theater the audience walks around the spectacle or the action of the play. In Walkabout Theatre the audience can either be standing or walking, but the action moves with them. So the characters move alongside with the audience.
With this particular production of Alice in Wonderland, the audience does both. Firstly they will begin with Alice talking to her sister and all of a sudden they spot the White Rabbit who’s in an awful hurry. The audience will walk to the next scene with Alice through the gardens and they will come upon the Cheshire Cat. There, Alice will interact with characters from that scene.
Other wonderful characters the audience will meet the Queen and her husband the King, and also the cards. Alice will also strike the loud Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, and they will also come across the antics of the Mad Hatter, March Hare and the Doormouse.
Of course not forgetting other wonderful characters such as the mornful Mock Turtle and the ever so intruiging Caterpillar.
Promenade Theater is a wonderful genre because it allows the audience to have a visceral and tangible experience with the action of the play.

We do hope you can get along to see the show, 18,19,20 and 21 of February 2021.
