Written by Lewis Carroll
Book by Josh Heaysman
Directed By: Natalie Hockley
Aussie Kelpie Arts retells Lewis Carroll's timeless classic, Alice in Wonderland, like you have never heard before. Featuring parodies of songs by popular artists, such as: The Who, Wiz Khalifa, Guns N' Roses and many more, it's a musical that puts a fresh new twist on a beloved tale.
With a mix of contemporary humour for all audiences and Carroll's quirky characters that everybody grew up with, it's Alice in Wonderland...but not as you know it.
Alice (f): A young, naïve girl. Endearing and curious
White Rabbit: Always in a rush and in a constant state of anxiety-induced panic.
Door / Dormouse: Puppets.* The Door is sassy and has a keen knowledge of things going on around him/her (4th wall breaks). The Dormouse is more often asleep than awake.
Mad Hatter: Irish accent. Fast talking and absolutely mad.
March Hare: Mad Hatter’s Partner-in-crime. Fast talking and absolutely mad.
Cheshire Cat (m): Straight, to the point and full of confidence. Is always right, even when wrong. Quite clearly a man in a cat costume (i.e. Wilfred)
Caterpillar: A stoner. Chilled out with a deep philosophy about the universe.
Flower 1 (m): Overtly masculine despite being a literal pansy. Is as harsh as granite.
Flower 2 (f): Kind hearted and comforting. Direct opposite of Flower 1
Queen of Hearts (f): Aggressive and self-centred. Loves to win and is cruel to any opposition.
King of Hearts (m): Timid and good hearted. Direct opposite of the Queen.
Gryphon: An old soul. Too engrossed in his/her own tale to take notice of surroundings and always willing to give advice whether it is needed or not.
Mock Turtle: Kind but with a meek constitution. Will burst into tears over the slightest inconvenience. No self-esteem.
Jabberwocky: Thick Southern US accent. A powerful presence with a light sense of humour and old fashion values.
Father (m): Critical of Alice. Demanding and his word is the law in his household. Played by Jabberwocky
Mother (f): Plays the victim in order to manipulate Alice. Played by March Hare
Sibling: Uses own success as the bar to judge all others against. Played by Mad Hatter.
+ A chorus of the King’s Guards
