Step into Alice's wonderful world; REVIEWS.

Byline: Marion McMullen

ALICE IN WONDERLAND - Co-operative Theatre, Wyken, Coventry, until Saturday. Running time 1hr 15min.

THE White Rabbit hops through the audience and opens the curtains on the world of Alice In Wonderland.

The Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts make themselves at home in Coventry as members of the youth section of the Wheatsheaf Players transform themselves into the storybook favourites.

Helen Finnegan is a pert little Alice with Charlene Blackshaw-Bennett giving a right royal performance as the White Queen.

Daniel Rye and Anthony Wilkes also make a cute double act as Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

The off-beat world of Lewis Carroll is an ambitious project.

As the youngsters relax and start to enjoy themselves their enthusiasm more than makes up for any forgotten or mumbled lines.
