In 2018, the team of “Bon-Bon Music” received a license for the English musical – “Alice Through the Looking Glass”. A world classic, realized for the first time on Bulgarian stage, and with children in the main roles!
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
Book & Lyrics by Chris Blackwood
Music by Piers Chater Robinson
Adapted from the novel by Lewis Carroll
The musical features about 50 children from “Bon-Bon” (between 4 and 15 years old) who sing, dance and are the main actors in the show.
Following the storyline of the musical, solving the riddles in each square of the chessboard on the way home, Alice and the small cast of “Bon-Bon” captivate the audience with an amazing game. The alternating paintings – masterfully designed by the creative team of the show, the brilliant choreography and vocal skills, the unique costumes, leave the audience breathless, puzzled how it is possible for children to act so professionally without the presence of a single big actor on stage.
The musical – combining dialogues, vocal and dance performances, educates young and old in a charming way. Putting them in certain life situations happening “live” in front of them, it reveals the immense possibilities of art – to provoke children to think, to ask questions and seek answers themselves, to feel and experience the world in a deep and nuanced way.
