Melbourne City Ballet return to the Potato Shed 7pm Friday 31 May with their interpretation of the classic Lewis Carroll tale, Alice In Wonderland.
With two of Australia’s leading choreographers, Melbourne City Ballet’s Michael Pappalardo (Artistic Director) and Brendan Bradshaw (Artistic Associate), this magical portrayal pays homage to Lewis Carroll and the work of composer Tchaikovsky in a show that is perfect for all ages.
You’ll witness all of Alice’s adventures, from drinking potions and avoiding the wrath of the Queen of Hearts, befriending the Knave and taking tea with the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Dormouse, to meeting the Cheshire Cat upon a giant mushroom and attempting to make sense of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.
That’s not all though.
A few nights earlier will see the Melbourne Theatre Company’s production of The Violent Outburst that Drew Me To You, 7pm Tuesday 28 May take over the Potato Shed.
This is a smart, sweet and fiery tale about two off-kilter kids who, at war with the world and themselves, find a moment’s piece with each other. Tackling the ticking-time bomb that is adolescence, it is a reminder of the impulse within us all to kick and scream at the Universe and the equally impatient need to lie in the woods, planning for the future.
Written by multi-award winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer, the afternoon session of The Violent Outburst that Drew Me To You has already sold out.
Make sure you head to the Potato Shed box office, call 5251 1998 or visit any City of Geelong Customer Service Centre and book your tickets now for either (or both!) shows.
