More Great Comments...
ArtReach's 'Alice in Christmas Land' is hilarious musical fun for kids, schools and families! Alice in Christmas Land is easy for you to direct and your young cast to rehearse and perform. Teachers, this School Play Version of Alice in Christmas Land is written just for you and your students. Six Alices make it possible more girls (and boys!) to play the lead role. No crying about who gets to be the "star". Tweedlesum and Tweedledee are a delight as they lead Alice on a flight above Christmas Land, where they see the Christmas Story come to life. ArtReach's School Play Version, of Alice in Wonderland requires no professional experience in theatre. It is written in simple terms with lots of practical suggestions.
