Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland

Ocean Octopus entertainment

This show, (based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland) intends to turn any event area into a magical Wonderland by presenting scenes adapted from the book.

Most of the scenes are interactive walkabout performances that passers-by and shops can get involved in, giving them the experience of being on their own adventure in Wonderland.  There is also a high level of physical skill, strong costumes and slapstick humour to keep people entertained.  Come and meet some of the characters, in a scene-by-scene show.

Alice Chasing the Rabbit

Both on stilts, roller skates or on foot – a walkabout sketch that often involves a crowd of children being enlisted by Alice to help find the White Rabbit – a  big game of hide and seek.  30 mins runabout.  This will involve visiting local shops in the area of the search and involving retailers.

The Caterpillar

The Caterpillar (on a mushroom on stilts) installs himself in some suitable location and waxes lyrical to all and sundry (including Alice).  30 mins static.

The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

This scene is part walkabout and part static show.  The Tea-Party crew (Mad Hatter, March Hare, Dormouse and Walking Table) start several tea parties (tea party not included) each one interrupted by the Table who gets bored and runs off.  Eventually, they meet Alice and a scene ensues.

This event should include local retailers who can add to the occasion.  The day could also be advertised as a ‘Mad Hatter’s Picnic’ to encourage members of the public to make more of the day.

Two Card and Rose Bush Slapstick

Two cards from the pack and a rise bush perform slapstick acrobalance and marching routines.  The language of card games is used (cut/snap/shuffle/split etc).  30 mins walkabout.

The Queen of Hearts Croquet Match

This scene can be performed in many different ways.  A favourite currently involves the audience being roped into being ‘hoops’ and ‘hedgehogs’ by the Queen who competes with Alice to score the most points.  The Queen cheats horribly and ALWAYS wins – “Who’s Queen?”  The artistes know they have done well when they get boo’ed off!

This show works very well as a street performance and involves local retailers and outlets in town and city centres.  The artistes are so familiar with the material that they have become extremely flexible with the structure of the scenes and can adapt to most locations and situations and can work to brief at a client’s request.  Examples of previous adaptations include putting various characters on aerial equipment, working around a maze and making a whole hour-long staged version to name but a few.
