The fantastical world of Alice in Wonderland is being brought to stage by talented young ballet, tap and modern dancers courtesy of Ashtead Ballet School.

The huge production had 130 local children rehearsing hard from September to put on the spectacle this weekend.

Maxine said: “It’s a fun story, lots of children can be involved because there’s lots of different characters, they don’t all have to be part of one group.

“We’ve got plenty of colourful costumes and props, visually it really works, and we’ll have great lighting effects too.”

The ballet is completely original, Maxine choreographed the dancing along with teachers Faye Bailey and Ashleigh Pitts.

Tickets are available from the Epsom Playhouse box office on 01372 742555 or direct from the school on 07919 883673.
