Event Details

Easter School 2020 – Alice in Wonderland (7-17yrs)

South Hill Park’s hugely popular Easter School is back, and falling down the rabbit hole, with a colourful and hilarious musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic children’s tale – Alice in Wonderland.

It doesn’t matter if you’re taking to the stage for the first time or if you’re a seasoned performer, Easter School is a fantastic holiday experience for any young person with a passion for drama.

In just five days, the Easter School performers will learn all of the ensemble numbers from the show. They will then join up with the adult cast to create one seamless production which is presented in the Wilde Theatre.

A crew of professional artists and technicians will work with a community cast, and the Easter School performers, to create a professional-quality production and bring Alice in Wonderland to life. This is truly a once in a lifetime experience.

Excellent course and highly recommended. My daughter built her confidence immensely and the staff and other actors were amazing! PARENT, 2018

Rehearsal dates: Mon 6 – Fri 10 April 9am–5pm (drop-off opens at 8.40am)

Technical rehearsal: Sat 11 & Sun 12 April 10am–6pm (drop-off opens at 9.40am)

Dress rehearsals: Mon 13 or Tue 14 April (according to group allocation)

We are always on the lookout for parent chaperones for rehearsals and performances, so if you have a child involved in the show, hold a chaperone licence and would be willing to help out on the performance days, we would love to hear from you.

The team will work with the entire company to get the up to speed in their ensemble roles whatever their age or experience. No auditions. No worries. No pressure.

Does SHP accept childcare vouchers ?


Dear Claire. Unfortunately, South Hill Park is not set up at this time to accept childcare vouchers for courses. I will however forward your question to our Finance team so they are aware of this request. Kind regards



I can see from the information provided that drop off is open from 8.40 on Rehearsal days – what time is collection open until? I work in Bracknell and finish at 5pm and I just need to know how long after 5pm is allowed for collection please.

Many thanks



Hi Sally. I have contacted the course organiser, Mark Hooper, who should be in contact with you about this shortly.

Is participation open for international students? We’ll like to enrol some students from our school on the program. Kindly inform if possible and what are the prerequisites and provisions.

Hi Akin. Thanks for your enquiry. Yes we do accept international students onto this course. It might be best to contact the course organiser, Mark Hooper at to get more information and to see if anything extra needs to be put in place. Then you can call our Box Office on 01344 484123 to book the students on the course itself. Hope this helps.


Hi Andi, thanks for your response. I have sent a mail to Mark Hooper but I am yet to get a response from him. A kind follow up will be appreciated.


Hi Akin. He has just sent you an email in response this morning.


Yes Andi, we have been in constant communication but there seems to be a break again in the flow. Is there a telephone number I can reach him on, to make our communication prompt. Regards


Hi Akin. Yes, you can call Mark on 01344 416 260.
