Alice in Wonderland will be brought to life in a new interactive adventure in both English and Gaelic.
Pitlochry Festival Theatre (PFT) have teamed up with Fèis Thatha for the bilingual retelling of the Lewis Carroll classic, which will take place at the theatre’s Explorers’ Garden from July 17 to September 12.
Alice in Wonderland World will take audiences on an interactive journey along the playing card pathway, through the Mad Hatter’s tea party into the Red Queen’s pillared garden, with the White Queen’s palace appearing among the trees as visitors search for the Cheshire Cat.
Visitors will be sent a link to a new app from the theatre to download ahead of the event, which will bring their journey to life as they discover the story hidden within the garden, featuring an English and Gaelic soundtrack.
Amy Liptrott, who wrote the script and directed the sound design, said: “Alice in Wonderland is a brilliant adventure story.
“She is so intrepid and meets such great characters, it has been a lot of fun to work on the script with the actors and sound design team to place Alice in Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s beautiful Explorers’ Garden.
“The chance to work on this piece in Gaelic with Fèis Thatha has been exciting. We are celebrating these languages and their place in the landscape of our Highland Perthshire home.
Fèis Thatha chair, Gill Steele added: “We are delighted to work with PFT on this unique, bilingual arts project.
“For the first time in Perthshire, there is a show specifically for families in both Gaelic and English, where they can adventure into Alice in Wonderland World.
“It’s fantastic that kids will have the opportunity to meet the Cheshire Cat and have tea with the Mad Hatter in both languages.”
