Reviews from Past Producers

Practical and economical solutions to all aspects of the story.

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.

Customer Feedback

Just wanted to let you know that my drama school S.W.A.T.S. (The Shaun Winterflood Academy of Theatrical Studies) performed ALICE last Saturday afternoon as the culmination of their Summer School.

All 46 children really loved working on the script during the week and the performance was enjoyed by the entire audience and pupils alike.

Thank you for a wonderful script which suited the age group concerned of 5 - 14 year olds.

Shaun Winterflood ASTSD
Principal of S.W.A.T.S.

The play was a great success, so thank you for producing a well-written and easy to perform work. The kids loved it, and it went over well with our public performance!
