we did this for our year 6 play!

By Jadey

we did this 10 years ago now for our year 6 production, and my brother then did it 3 years later at a different school. These songs have a special place in my heart. I was the Mock Turtle and he was a playing card. ❤


By E.G.C

Best play ever my 4 favorite songs are who stole the tarts mad as a hatter caucus race.And mouses tale

One of the best end of year shows I have been involved in

By Headteacher - Wirral

This is the perfect end of year show for a quirky class. The characters, songs and storyline capture the imagination of every child (and audience member). The work the children produced alongside rehearsing and performing this show was of the highest quality. This is one of the best end of year shows I have been involved in.

Best play ever

By Alex_b_

This year we picked this play for our year 6 leavers play. I would really love to be Alice. We have only listened to a few songs so far but they all sound amazing. We have been told that there are going to be 2 Alice's and 2 Lewis Carrol's because they have so many lines and stage time. Overall this is an amazing play and I am so excited to find out what our parts are in 1 week!!!

I got the part I wanted!

By Ben

I left a review about a month ago and today we found out our parts!! I am the Mad Hatter! I don't have that many lines but I have a very big song to sing. I am so excited but nervous!

Looks good

By Ben

We are doing this as our p7 leavers concert. We listened to 3 songs today and I'm liking it so far. I want to be mad hatter! Only 4 stars because we have not started yet



This is a brilliant play we are doing this for Year 6 leavers but we have had to change the script around a bit because we thought there was a Tweedle-Dum and Dee we also skipped some songs and bits of script but it is a extremely good play.


By dormouse

i love the play ive got four more days till thousands of people starts crouding in aahhh my aunt is doing make up and she is so good she did me as dormouse and she made me look the best with mad hatter and march hare the songs are amazing i love the caucause race and the alice solos are good and especilley act two its my favourite act


By molly

I got the white rabbit and I luv my part its soooooooooooo cool and I get too sing a really fast song. thank you to mrs jhonson mr tingey miss lawn and steven yallo[p


By Ellie McNelis

As we only have 27 children doing our play this year some people have to play multiple parts which is quite good and the songs are pretty easy to learn. I couldn't recommend a better play to do for our year six production!!


By Kian

This Musical is the best I've done providing I'm in Year 6 and yes my favourite is Down Down Down Also the script isn't a wreck so this Musical I would Kindly recommend it to anyone who wants to do a Leavers Consert or for any use. I also listen to my favorites on a bus or in a car. So 10/10

What a great production

By Mock turtle-Emily Clays

I love alice the musical! It's good there are so many songs as I love singing and it's fun playing the mock turtle because he is a humerous part with lots of lines and two solo songs! I can't wait for our performance in July and I wish my colleagues (cast!) the best of luck!


By king

I cannot wait to start doing this play! I so want to be the mad hatter!!!!

I was white rabbit

By Flynn

i did this play i was white rabbit and sang im late its great


By Mrs A

I thoroughly enjoyed being musical director for the Year 5s and 6s production. The children really enjoyed the songs - and younger children in school have also been heard singing the Croquet Song and Beautiful Soup! Caucus Race was terrific - parents loved it. A great mix of songs altogether and lots of scope for creative parents to make great costumes & backdrops.


By Jane

We are doing the musical and I am Alice and so far it GREAT! In capitals

So Awesome

By Chesirekitty

We are doing this production at our school and I really like it! I am the Cheshire Cat but why am I not on the character list? The songs are really good and I especially like pig and pepper! Our performance is on may 29 and I am so excited!


By Daniella

am doing it for or yr 6 leavers concert the 2 year 6 classes have to split the part and i am alice in act one and this other girl is alice in act two


By Caitlyn

We are doing Alice the musical for our Year 6 leavers play and so far it is absolutley AMAZING!! I play Alice as well. We decided to have 3 Alices and im the last one but because im the one who wanted the most singing parts I have most of the songs I love the Mad Hatter song the best. Overall 5 stars

BEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Fingers

This production/musical is the best ever! The songs are so good but so easy to learn! The script is amazing and doesnt need any changes. nHowever, there are a few things that let this play down. The script was very hard to understand, even when you have made changes. Also, parts in the play, like the doormouse (the part that I have), have very little lines. I found this very upsetting to think that Lewis Carrol and Alice have so many lines, where I only got two lines!nOverall, I reckon that this play would be suitable for year 6 leavers (like myself) and would recommed it.


By Nicole at Christ the King

I am a year 6 and we are doing this this year and it so AWESOME!!! :)

cool crazy

By Alice 2

this play is mad ! (in a good way ) i would recommend having 2 alices as there are sooooo many lines and alot of people might want this part. Unfortunately alice in the second half doesnt have as many songs or lines though.


By Annie

I auditioned for the white rabbit but i didn't get it, still, i'm the doormouse, who doesn't have many lines. My teacher might give me a solo and add some lines for me and the boy who's playing the cook. nOn the whole, quite a good play! There had to be 6 Lewis Carrolls and three Alice's because they had so many lines! nI think this is a good play for year six leavers, like me.

The best production I have ever seen!

By Kiki

I did this muscial with my year 6 class as our end of year leavers' production. It was amazing. The children absolutely loved it. I would thoroughly recommend it, particularly for this age group. The songs are infectious, the script easy to learn and very funny. The suggestions for scenes and props really, really helpful. The incredible comments from the audience were along the lines of "the best production I have ever seen" and "an absolutely stunning performance!" Buy it now!!! You won't regret it!!

Excellent fun

By Rhiannon

This is a fantastic version, I watched it this evening at my son's school and my 4 year old daughter loved it especially the White Rabbit and Mad Hatter's songs. It's got all the humour and wackiness you'd expect, brilliant! The songs are so catchy, you'll be singing them for weeks to come...


By Fais99

Im the mad hatter and i absoloutley LOVED this!


By Lisa

My son was in this last week as part of the chorus line and I have to say how absolutely fantastic this play was. I have to take my hat off to the young lady (year 6) who played Alice and also the lad who was mad hatter! If ever there has been such a funny play which even the youngest audience could appreciate. Well done to the production team and a wonderful cast.


By Mark

By alice

By Observer

After attending a Work Placement, as part of my decision to attend a Teacher Training course, I found that this Musical was a perfect end to the school year. I would recommend this to anybody who wants to perform Alice as part of either a class or choir assembly or performance.nnWell done.

By cool cat

By Jackarias

I recently enjoyed my job as Musical Director of a primary school's adaptation of 'Alice the Musical'. I found that the piano accompaniments were very pliable and that where more appropriate, the backing tracks were very fitting. Absolutely wonderful and original songs and script kept the audience upbeat and entertained throughout! Well done again 'Out of the Ark'.

so cool

By angel
