adapted by Lindsay Price from Lewis Carroll

A one-act adaptation of the famous novel by Lewis Carroll.

Alice follows the white rabbit down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where she meets a cornucopia of strange creatures.

A caterpillar gives advice, the Mad Hatter and March Hare are always at tea time, and the Queen of Hearts continually cries, "Off with her head!"

The Cheshire Cat says everyone in Wonderland is mad, and therefore Alice must be too. Has Alice lost her head? Only the Cheshire Cat knows for sure.

Praise for Alice

Dana Nickel
Westmount Junior High School
This was the second time my school has presented Alice. I love the variety and number of roles in the script. It ensures that all students who would like to be a part of the drama production (no matter their skill) can have a part! It is also great that you can go with either a minimalist set or an extravagant one based on the resources your troupe has.

We LOVED Alice. This interpretation allows for a lot of simple creativity. We enjoyed figuring out the visuals and transitions from one scene to the next. The opening chase through the ensemble was particularly fun to stage and became a favorite scene among the cast. There are great character parts with plenty of ensemble roles so that everyone has their moment. Our audience loved it. Clever script!

If you want to be able to do Alice in Wonderland with a less experienced group of younger kiddos, this is the perfect adaptation!!! The chorus provides so many opportunities for those that are new to the stage or just shy being on stage. There is no heavy set requirement - you can be as elaborate or simple as you want. The scenes are not terribly long. Great show for beginners.
