On Saturday May 21st, commencing at 13:00 SLT, members of Seanchai Library will perform a complete reading of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
“We begin at the beginning, and go on till we come to the end, then we stop, “quoted Caledonia Skytower, when announcing the event – the official title of which is The Big Read, and which takes place at Seanchai’s Crazy Eights region.
The presentation will begin with “Down the Rabbit Hole” at 13:00 SLT, and will conclude with “Alice’s Evidence” shortly after 16:00 SLT. It will include the voice talents of Corwyn Allen, Hana Hoo, John Morland, Kayden Oconnell, Dubhna Rhiadra, Trolley Trollop, and Caledonia Skytower.
Readings will begin with pairs of voices, crescendo to a cacophony involving the entire cast, in a script arranged by Kayden Oconnell which includes all the words from the original, with no adaptation.
When asked what more we should know, Caledonia replied, “The stage is set: the tea is poured, the cards are dealt. All that remains is you!”
So there you have it! Guests are invited to enjoy all or any part of the performance, although those wishing to hear everything from the beginning should check their pocket watches and ensure that they most assuredly are not late for this very important date! Headgear is entirely optional – but I have little doubt hats may well be most welcome!
