Alice In Wonderland The Musical will be presented by young people aged six to 18 years.

The production company was founded by Lucie Featherstone, who trained at the prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in London. Lucie worked as an actress and performer for many years before running a successful pre-school dance franchise and eventually launching Poppet and Pearl Productions.

Lucie said: “Our mission at Poppet and Pearl Productions is to inspire, encourage and empower young performers to discover their true potential. We have secured representation with top casting agencies for some of the children we teach, and many have gone onto be successful gaining roles in television and professional theatre.”
