As the curtain rises, Alice slides into view at the end of her long fall down the rabbit-hole. It is a more delightful place for the audience than for Alice, who is trying desperately to get back home. She tries to get help from the Mad Hatter, the Rabbit, and from the very nice Cheshire Cat. Long enough to contain the most delightful incidents, it is short enough to keep audience attention.

- Review by Cori Veverka, Limelight Theatre Company, Oswego, Ill.
- "Written very cleverly, Alice is a great show for high-school actors. It allows them to play very colorful characters in a production that has an "edginess" to it! It's off-the-wall, creative and very different. My actors enjoyed it, and I enjoyed the challenge of directing it!"
- Review by Ralph Lawson, Union High School, Union, S.C.
- "I wanted a script with all the classic characters and this is itÑeveryone is present! It also has very simple staging ideas."
- Review by Laura Budde, Marquardt Middle School, Glendale Heights, Ill.
- "This was an entertaining play that was easily adaptable to a large cast."
- Review by Bryan Halperin, The Winni Playhouse Youth Ensemble, Laconia, N.H.
- "This script of Alice in Wonderland ws fantasticÑso true to the actual Lewis Carroll story. All the main characters are present and given significant stage time. Lots of secondary parts for extra performers. Alice portrayed as sweet, with a little bit of feistiness. Script avoids some of the early scenes that would be technical nightmaresÑi.e. shrinking/growing Alice. Well received by all attendees, lots of fun for cast and crew."

Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "Use a lot of color. Experiment with scale of scenery, making things larger than normal. Using casters helps roll from scene to scene. About 100 students were involved in our cast and crew!"
- Tip by Nathan Bramstedt, Metea Valley High School, Aurora, Ill.
- "Keep the set simple and spend your money on making the props and costumes really luxurious and fanciful. Emphasize the character's humor and uniqueness of the actor."
- Tip by Carol-Ann Black, Showbiz Kidz/Showbiz Starz, Allen Park, Mich.
- "We completed the play Alice in Wonderland with approximately 40 kids in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. We had a very simple set with a door that moved around the stage."
- Tip by Diane Deering, Powell Middle School, Littleton Colo.
- "The bigger, the better! With elaborate costumes and set, the actors come alive making this production something the audience will never forget."
- Tip by Peter Taylor, Holy Redeemer Catholic Junior/Senior High School, Edson, Alberta, Canada
- "Use the floor in front of stage as suggested in the Production Notes at the back of the script. It makes setting up props and sets a breeze."
- Tip by C. Mangan/G. Rhodenizer, Kelly Road Secondary School, Prince George, British Columbia, Canada
- "We flew in the trees for the gardener scene instead of propping up trees."
- Tip by Beth Lund, Oskaloosa Middle School, Oskaloosa, Iowa
- "I agree with comments in the playbook and on the website: the costumes are the most important, non-actor item."
- Tip by George Pfeffer, Covenant Classical School, Concord, N.C.
