Falace in Wonderland: Grand Daddy’s Cheeky New Dinner Theatre

Things to do this weekend: Falace in Wonderland at Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel

Intimate 50-seater restaurant, ALICE, brings a whimsical story to life with a modern twist: Falace in Wonderland. Set within the popular, luxe Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel, the restaurant transforms into a theatre every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.

This new tongue-in-cheek musical delves into the adventures of Alice’s journey through the perilous, let playful, adventures of today’s online dating. An adults-only spectacle of sing-alongs, burlesque and naughty humour, paired with an innovative dining experience, offers an evening audiences are unlikely to forget.

Written and narrated by Tessa Denton, Falace in Wonderland is a coming-of-age story centred around Alice’s online dating pursuits on the ‘wonderland’ dating site. The show is accompanied by favourite noughties hits, some seriously sexy dance numbers, and some unexpected twists and turns. Denton’s credentials include over 25 years in the performing arts industry, including numerous TV and theatre acting roles (Generations, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and others) and a slew of important crew and production roles.

Cape-Town-born singer Elaine Fourie stars as ‘Alice’, lending impressive vocal abilities and extensive experience to the Falace in Wonderland stage. She’s joined by Caelee Vercueil, who boasts a recording contract with Sony BMG Music Entertainment and a 7-year run at the Barnyard Theatre, and Fleur du Cap nominee Zolani Shanase, known for his roles in ‘The Lion King’, ‘The Colour Purple’, and many more.
