An outdoor theatre production that is fantastic for school aged children and their families.

With summer holidays in full swing, there’s an abundance of outdoor shows on offer across Perth at the moment.

Master B (aged 5) and I enjoyed a lovely 'date night' in Kings Park for Prompt Corner’s production of Alice in Wonderland meets Peter Rabbit. Outdoor theatre is a great introduction to the arts for young kids because the set up is pretty casual and kids are not restricted by theatre seating. This show was presented in the Saw Avenue Amphitheatre, which is a beautiful large grassed space with stepped seating areas. The large audience - who ranged in age from babies to seniors - brought blankets, low back chairs and picnics to enjoy in the late afternoon sunshine.

The show was a blend of music, theatre and dance, with a good dash of humour thrown in. Prompt Corner produce their popular ballets and children’s theatre performances during the school holidays at a number of venues around Perth. The costumes were excellent and the performance certainly captured the attention of Master B for the whole hour of the show.



Alice in wonderland
The scenery and costumes were superb


We began by meeting the Mad Hatter, who also acted as the narrator, and then Alice and her sister danced onto the stage. The captivating character of Peter Rabbit bounced into the show and entertained us with his wacky antics. We also met many of Lewis Carroll’s popular characters including the Cheshire Cat, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee.

Master B especially enjoyed the scene where The Queen played croquet with a flamingo and a hedgehog! To conclude the performance, a dozen young volunteers from the audience were called up to act as a jury in The Queen’s Court before Alice led them all in a wild chase to close the show.

The audience enjoyed getting photos with the cast after the show


The large crowd clearly enjoyed the performance, and the cast happily posed for photos at the end of the show. We will certainly be keeping a lookout for other Prompt Corner shows in the future.
