Aw, ur welcome :) It was fun to do

As far as characterisation goes - the book says that the Caterpillar talks "in a languid, sleepy voice"

I think he's quite superior - so he finds everything and everyone else rather boring and not really worth bothering with.

During his conversation with Alice, he addresses her "sternly", "contemptuously" and "decidedly"

So I think he's very confident - he knows he's right which means that other people are probably wrong.

But he isn't mean or unkind - he helps Alice and is interested in her problems - I think he's like a rather stiff headmaster or school principle - Above everything else, but will help the lesser people if he can.

I think the Tiger Lily should sway some. Carroll refers to her as, "waving gracefully about in the wind," so I imagine a gentle, fluid movment as she is blown by the breeze.

She seems to be the boss of the flowers (or to think she is.) She is the first to speak and she tells the others off when they annoy her. She is also quite critical. So she's a bit like a teacher too, but where the Caterpillar is languid and sleepy, the Tiger Lily is more passionate. (In fact, Carroll was originally going to make her a passion-flower, but decided not to because it turned out not to mean what he thought it did.)

Perhaps she's like a prima ballerina - graceful, passionate, feminine and a little bit of a diva

The cook seems like the exact opposite of this - solid, down to earth and bad tempered. I imagine her always scowling, elbows bent, shoulders hunched, with a determined, unstoppable air as though she'd gladly punch you in the face if you got in her way. Rather gruff perhaps.


It all sounds like lots of fun. Hope you enjoy doing it :)

definetely. It's great! and yeah, I looked at the costume ideas, I'll look again but I think they might've not had the thingies I was looking for but maybe I didn't notice. :-)

okay, we're almost done filming. I can't post it here because it's apparently some kind of illegal-ness in some way. What I wore: for the caterpillar, I wore a blue sleeping bag (with a yellow inside) and a blue headband. And my cook outfit was an oversized powder-blue mens shirt under an apron, with normal sweatpants rolled up to show my rainbow-striped socks. was that TMI??? anyway, the play epically failed a little in many ways, but thats only oblidged if you want me to. so, yeah! i think the bloopers are longer than the actual thing! DIS:-O

I'm curious to hear how it "epically failed". I'm sure it wasn't as bad as you say.

well, school ended and I'm probably never gonna see it again, so I don't really remember how it was, but i know when the mad hatter tried to rush into the court scene, she smacked into the wall, and in the caterpillar scene i smacked myself with the script.

---so yeah... DIS:-/

Oh gosh. Well, it's just a school production. It's not a big deal.

DIS:-) Fun is all that matters. I would love to be a part of an Alice play even if it was a failure.
