What is the difference between the School Play Version and the Medium Cast Version? The School Play Version has a cast of 20 or more; Medium Cast Version has a smaller cast of about 14. Speeches are longer and more action is given to the Storytellers. Large roles such as Alice and Queen of Hearts are played by one actor. Many of the famous scenes such as the Mad Tea Party and Cheshire Cat's appearance use Carroll's original dialogue.
Alice in Wonderland has three versions:
