Cue Alice, who along with her mother and Wally the Joker come to the rescue. Featuring a slightly surreal and incredibly funny Mad Hatter’s tea-party, plus hilarious madcap antics curtesy of Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Not to mention the Queen of Hearts who is a cut above.

SCENE ONE
WONDERLAND

Chorus are onstage. Music cue 1: Chorus. After song ends…

Enter Wally [SR]

WALLY: Hiya Folks! I say, I say! What’s big and wobbly and flies in the air? A jellycopter!

Chorus groan.

CHORUS 1: Give it a rest Wally.

WALLY: But it’s my job to get everybody in a happy mood, ready to cheer the Queen of Hearts when she arrives. If she doesn’t get the welcome she expects, she’ll have my head. Couldn’t you at least force a titter?

CHORUS 2: Sorry Wally, but we’ve heard all your jokes before.

CHORUS 3: [indicating audience] Yes, but this lot won’t have.

CHORUS 4: I wouldn’t bet on it.

WALLY: Listen folks, I’m Wally the Joker, and whenever I come on and shout, ‘hiya folks!’ I want you all to shout back, ‘tell us a joke you funny bloke,’ and I’ll tell you one of my brilliant jokes. Let’s have a practice then. [exits and re-enters] Hiya folks! Listen boys and girls, this is a panto so, you can be as loud as you like and nobody will tell you off, okay? Let’s try it again. [repeats business] Hiya folks! I don’t think the mums and dads were joining in, were they boys and girls? We’ll have one more go, and everybody join in this time. [repeats business] Hiya folks! I say, I say! My mum-in-law has just gone to Moscow.

CHORUS 5: Is she Russian?

WALLY: No, she’s taking her time! [laughs]

Chorus groan.

CHORUS 6: If that’s the best you can do Wally, you deserve to lose your head.

Exit Chorus [SL]

WALLY: They obviously don’t have a sense of humour. See you later folks! [exits SL]

Enter Alice, crawling on [SR]

ALICE: Mr Rabbit, where are you? [stands] Thank goodness I can stand again. That rabbit hole was very cramped. [gazes about] What a strange-looking place.

Enter Millie [SL]

MILLIE: There you are Alice!

ALICE: Mum! What are you doing here?

MILLIE: You’re late for your tea again.

SFX: Cartoon style running-whizzing sound.

Enter White Rabbit at a run [USL]

MILLIE: Oh look, it’s the Easter Bunny!

W. RABBIT: [stops and checks his watch] Aaaah! I’m still late for the royal wedding!

MILLIE: Another Royal wedding! Who’s getting married this time?

ALICE: The Princess of Hearts and the Prince of Diamonds.

MILLIE: Never heard of them, they must be minor royals.

W. RABBIT: I’m late! Goodbye! [exits SR]

ALICE: Wait Mr Rabbit! [exits after White Rabbit]

MILLIE: I’ve done chasing after Alice, who cares about a stuffy royal wedding anyway?

Music cue 2: Enter Knave of Spades [SL]

KNAVE: Did somebody mention a royal wedding?

MILLIE: I did, why?

KNAVE: So, who’s getting married then?

MILLIE: The Princess of Hearts and the Prince of Diamonds, apparently.

KNAVE: But I’m supposed to be marrying the Princess!

MILLIE: Are you the vicar then?

KNAVE: No! I should be the groom!

MILLIE: Jilted you did she?

KNAVE: The King of Hearts promised that Princess Ruby would marry me.

MILLIE: And who are you?

KNAVE: I’m the Knave of Spades.

MILLIE: I think you’ve been dealt a bum hand.

KNAVE: Yes, but I always come up trumps.

MILLIE: [wafting] I wondered what that rotten smell was.

Enter Alice [SR]

MILLIE: Did you manage to catch the White Rabbit, Alice?

ALICE: No mum, he was too fast for me.

KNAVE: I too seek the White Rabbit and I will pay a handsome reward to whoever helps me capture him.

MILLIE: He went that-a-way. [points SR]

KNAVE: Thanks! [exits at a run SR]

MILLIE: [shouts] Just make the cheque out to Millie!

ALICE: I wonder why he’s after the White Rabbit?

MILLIE: Who cares, Alice.

ALICE: I didn’t like the look of him mum.

MILLIE: I thought he was an ugly ner-do-well at first, until I noticed his better qualities.

ALICE: And when was that?

MILLIE: The moment he mentioned, ‘handsome reward.’

Music cue 3: Enter Dum and Dee [SL]

MILLIE: Eh-up! It’s the Chuckle Brothers.

DEE: [to Millie] Hello to you.

DUM: [to Alice] Hello to you.

DEE: [to Millie] Hello to you again.

DUM: We’ll introduce ourselves if we may.

DEE: Or if you like, we’ll go away.

DUM: I’m Tweedledum.

DEE: I’m Tweedledee.

DUM/DEE: And Tweedly twins are what we be.

DUM: [to Millie] Now who are you?

DEE: [to Alice] And who are you?

DUM: [to Millie] And who are you again?

MILLIE: [points to herself and Alice in turn] I’m me, that’s her, that’s her, I’m me. But I’m not her and she’s not me, I can be silly too you see.

DEE: And very well you do it too.
