Wyldwood Theatre Company was founded in July 2014 with the aim of producing a performance of a professional standard from a group of young amateur actors. The group has continued to produce and perform 7 shows, with the cast changing and evolving as members leave to go to university or find other adventures. These have included two original plays of The Blood Between Us and The Dream Child, inspired respectively by the poetry and works of Christina Rossetti and Lewis Carroll, an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and a performance most recently of 'Throne': an original play inspired by the classical Greek and Roman Gods. All have been very successful, with the audience and cast greatly enjoying the work of the company.{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Freact-text%20%2D%2D%3E

Coming on the 1st and 2nd September 2018...

Wyldwood Theatre Company will return to the stage this September for their eighth production, 'Alice In Wonderland'. The 17-strong local cast with ages ranging from 14 to 28 have produced, directed and designed this adaptation of Lewis Carroll's loved story. Colour will rush onto the Kirkgate Centre stage on the 1st and 2nd of September with original costumes, set and music that will appeal to all, but especially the mad.

Bored of her stuffy sister Lorina who embodies the Victorian ideals of childhood, the young Alice is more than excited by the appearance of an anxious white rabbit who exclaims that he is late. After falling down a rabbit hole after the worrisome creature, Alice is transported to a Wonderland of tyrannical monarchs, fantastical creatures and talking flowers. Throughout the play Alice struggles to keep her sanity whilst shrinking and growing around strangers who challenge her logic and threaten to chop off her head.

 This will be the second time that the company has explored Lewis Carroll and his work. 'The Dream Child', an original play performed in March 2016, followed the life of Lewis Carroll, also known as Charles Lutwidge Dodgson , and the close relationship between his life and his fiction.

Performances are on the 1st and 2nd September at the Kirkgate Centre Cockermouth. Contact the Kirkgate Centre Box Office at 01900 826448 and www.thekirkgate.com, tickets £7, £5 concessions. Tickets can be purchased on the door both nights, and both performances start at 7:30pm.
