Alice falls down the rabbit and races against time in a new Lympsham show.

The Lympsham Amateur Dramatic Society put its own spin on the Lewis Carroll classic, Alice In Wonderland.

Alice In Lympleland takes a bewildered young lady, a happy cat, a larger-than-life queen and an enormous caterpillar and pulls it all together in a whimsical way.

Following the success of Jack in the Breanstalk last year, the group promises to put on another comical show of ‘utter madness’.

The tale will follow the traditional story of the girl who finds herself in a weird and wonderful world, but with a few West Country twists thrown in for good measure.

The fairytale show will be at the Manor House, in Lympsham Road, from tomorrow (Friday) until Saturday.

There will be a show at 7.30pm each evening with a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday.

Tickets, priced £3-5, are available from the village’s post office on 01934 750933 and on the door.
