JUNIOR thespians will take to the stage in Burnham next weekend for a special production.

Musical theatre group BEES will perform Disney’s Alice in Wonderland Jr at The Princess Theatre, with performances at 7pm on Saturday (27) and 3pm the following day.

The production will be BEES’ first time back on stage in two years due to Covid restrictions.

"We are excited to bring you a zany but shortened musical, adapted specially for junior performers, based on the 1951 Disney film and the novels by Lewis Carroll," said a spokesperson.

"Follow Alice as she navigates the curious world of Wonderland on her journey of self-discovery, encountering the ever-tardy White Rabbit, the grinning Cheshire Cat, a cool Caterpillar, a Mad Hatter, a Queen with quite a temper, and many more of literature’s beloved Wonderland characters.

"This musical includes favourites from the Disney cannon such as I’m Late, The Unbirthday Song and Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah in a charming, updated retelling of the Lewis Carroll classic.

"Whether this is your first experience with Alice or your hundredth, you’ll lose your head (and your heart) for Alice in Wonderland Jr."

The group thanked Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council and Sedgemoor District Council, 'because without their valued funding assistance this year’s production would not be possible'.
