Information for Queen of Hearts (2010)

Queen of Hearts, was a Pantomime directed by Amy Clarke & Robert Painter. The Queen of Hearts is based on the nursery rhyme of the same name, involving the fearsome Queen, her henpacked husband, an evil prime minister, Alice and princes and fair young ladies in abundance. There are also of course fairies and demons and many familiar characters from Wonderland - the Mad Hatter, Walrus, the Duchess and many others.

It is a traditional panto, with the Queen as the dame and the familiar panto fun - lots of singing, dancing, jokes and plenty of slapstick!
