THE MUMBLE : Hi Kerry, so you’re just about to take Wonderland on tour around Britain, how are rehearsals going and are you looking forward to opening night?

KERRY : Its always a little crazy with a new show because we are all discovering the show for the first time. The music is really incredible and sounds magical, I think people will go home singing a tune !

THE MUMBLE : How are you finding producer Neil Eckersley’s take on this classic
story.

KERRY : Its the first time I have worked with Neil and Im so grateful to have been cast to create the role of Alice in a brand new show.

THE MUMBLE :  Which are your favorite musical numbers from the show?

KERRY : There are so many!! Though I do have a moment with Dave Willetts who sings a very inspirational song which is very special… we worked together on a show many years ago when I was 19 so its nice to share a moment on stage.

THE MUMBLE :  What are the audience members to expect from this particular adaption.

KERRY : They will be bopping along for sure and hopefully leave with a smile, its a great family fun show.
