- "The play was great fun! I liked the music additions and the range of parts."
- Review by Tom Ostheimer, Children's Theatre Company, Williamstown, Mass.
- "This is the best Alice play I've ever seen. We have produced it twice now (10 years apart), the first one was my favorite performance until the second one blew it out of the water! Great for character development and multiple spotlights. Everybody has a chance for a best performance!"
- Review by Peg Ginsberg, Mt. Horeb High School, Mt. Horeb, Wis.
- "I chose Alice in Wonderland as the very first play at our school so that any student who wanted to be involved could be. It was easy to expand for extra actors. It is a show that students can add their own touches to."
- Review by Christine Hopper, Frances Harper Junior High, Davis, Calif.
- "Fast moving, crisp dialogue, colorful characters, workable set Ñ an excellent production. We will do it again and again!"
- Review by Anne Stumhofer, Family Theatre, Columbus, Ga.

- Review by Cristin Lenters, Chicago Christian High, Palos Heights, Ill.

- Review by Mari Adams, Catholic High School, Huntsville, Ala.

- Review by Kathy Bridge, Home School, Delafield, Wis.
- "This was one of our most successful productions in 35 years of doing children's theater. The audience loved the show and the cast enjoyed performing it. The running time was just right."
- Review by David Eggebrecht, Concordia University, Mequon, Wis.
- "It was a great privilege to do this version of the literary classic. This play was really commodious for our young acting students and well written. The show allowed many students to participate, making the production a total success."
- Review by Keith L. Davis, Grover C. Fields Middle School, New Bern, N.C.
- "Incredible! I read five different Alice scripts, and this one was by far the most meaningful. Chorpenning artfully weaves the events together with a deeper meaning, making the show enjoyable for all ages!"
- Review by Carrie Gerrard, Lake Stevens High School, Lake Stevens, Wash.
- "Alice was marvelous! This is the perfect show for junior high performers. They can indulge their inner "silly" side from Alice. "We're all crazy around here," says the Frog. As a director, I didn't have to chide performers to act as adults. This was not a stretch acting-wise and it was amazing how much fun it was on the setÑfor both students and director. We got fabulous feedback from our audiences!"
- Review by Maureen Ghiossi, The King's Academy, Sunnyvale, Calif.
- "The closest version to what I desired, after reading many very true to Carroll, but unique in its own creative ways. A novel combination of both books into one witty play."
- Review by Christina McAllister, St. Thomas Aquinas High School, North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
