ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Medium Cast Version)
The story is just as you remember it... Here is Alice meeting the White Rabbit and our clever storytellers keeping the action moving.
RABBIT: Who are you?
ALICE: That's not a very polite way of introducing yourself, you know. (Stands and curtseys.) My name is Alice. How do you do?
RABBIT: Humph! Whatever are you doing in my rabbit hole? I suppose you're going to say you fell from the sky.
ALICE: Well no, as a matter of fact I remember chasing a rabbit... he was running so fast and saying...
RABBIT: Oh, my ears and whiskers!
ALICE: Yes, exactly like that. And he ran into his rabbit hole and I followed him. It was the most extraordinary rabbit hole. Why, I was afraid I might fall right through the earth!
RABBIT: Must have been a very remarkable rabbit.
ALICE: Oh no, there was nothing so very remarkable about him except that he had a...
(RABBIT takes out his watch.)
...watch in his waistcoat pocket!
RABBIT: Like this one?
STORYTELLERS: Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock.
ALICE: Yes. And he kept saying...
RABBIT: Oh dear, oh dear, I shall be too too late!
RABBIT: Well, good-bye.
ALICE: I'm sure you mean, hello. I only just got here.
RABBIT: Good-bye, hello, good-bye, hello, good-bye, hello.
ALICE: I wish you'd make up your mind.
RABBIT: No time. No time for that. Oh, my ears and whiskers, how late it's getting!
ALICE: Late for what?
RABBIT: Difficult to say. Very very difficult to say.
ALICE: But if you don't know what it is you are late for...
RABBIT: No time for that now. Hello!
(Waves to her as HE exits behind screen.)
ALICE: But wait!
(SHE follows behind the banner and emerges on the other side, walking backwards, looking where HE went.)
He's gone. How very strange.
STORYTELLER #2: Alice found herself in a long low hall...
STORYTELLER #3: Which was lit up by a row of lamps hanging from the roof.
STORYTELLER #1: And along one wall she found...
(ALICE knocks on one. STORYTELLERS make "knock, knock" sound.)
I guess nobody's home. I'll just open one of them and...
(Turns knob, it is locked.)
Locked. Oh, well, surely this one will lead me to...
Maybe this one...
(Runs around frantically trying to open the locked doors.)
Oh, dear, I must have fallen miles and miles! I must be somewhere near the center of the earth. And now all these doors. How will I ever get back home? Dinah will be wanting her saucer of milk just now.
STORYTELLER #2: (Places stool as table while speaking.) Suddenly she came upon a little three legged table, all made of glass.
STORYTELLER #3: (Placing key.) There was nothing on it but a tiny golden...
