between us

Alice is everywhere. Images from Wonderland permeate our culture at every turn, whether it be the iconic animated Alice dressed in blue with a white pinafore or Johnny Depp’s charismatic Hatter. Lewis Carroll phrases like “mad as a hatter” or “down the rabbit hole” creep into everyday conversations. So, fueled with the appeal of all these impressions, we set out to create a middle-school Alice in Wonderland. On the most obvious level, anyone in the midst of, or sustaining memories of their middle-school experience can vouch for a certain degree of madness when one is caught between the world of child and adult — yeah, that’s a crazy place. As we explored the concept of our Alice experiencing a new middle school for the very first time, the inhabitants of Wonderland took on the blended identities of characters from the book and actual middle-school students. And ultimately, in at least one important way, our middle-school wonderland varies greatly from Carroll’s. Unlike his Alice’s encounters with volatile characters and unresolved circumstances, our Alice explores friendships of all kinds in Landwunder Middle School and, despite the madness around her, recognizes what is authentic. It took a village to create Alice’s middle-school wonderland. So thank you Neeley and Steve, all those smart Alliance staffers, each and every Alliance Alice Between camper and, of course, the creative and whimsical cast, crew and design team. I’d like to close this letter with a bit of lovely lyric created by a group of campers. It is written from the perspective of Alice’s Wonderland friends, Cheshire, Hatter and Caty (Caterpillar). Explain it all so she won’t fall We’ll get her through the day ’Cause we can tell this won’t go well She must be new, yes we can tell This won’t go well, she must be new. May every rabbit hole in which you fall lead you to rich adventures and authentic friendships. Blessings, Rosemary Newcott Sally G. Tomlinson Artistic Director of Theatre for Youth & Families ALLIANCETHEATRE.ORG

Growing Pains With plenty of inspiration from Lewis Carroll, Alliance Theatre zeroes in on those dicey middle-school years. Story by Julie Bookman | Photos by K athleen Covington

I

n Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the 1865 classic by Lewis Carroll, the main character falls down a rabbit hole. Then it’s just one nonsensical thing after another. Kind of like middle school. Alice Between, a new play for family audiences commissioned by the Alliance Theatre, mashes up Carroll’s fantasy tale in clever and entertaining ways to address the angst and stings of middle school today. As the play opens, a girl named Alice is late — of course, she’s late — for her very important first day as a new student at Landwunder Middle School. She’s also lost, and no one at 8 ENCOREATLANTA.COM

this ginormous school will tell her how to find the “700 hallway.” Everybody knows that middle school can be crazy. Also cruel. In this heavy-duty, growingpains chapter of life, kids are full of insecurities. As loyalties come and go, friendship trauma is a constant. Plenty of kids feel burdened by what others could be thinking or saying about them. So they’re forever fretful of embarrassing themselves. Then there’s that whole social status “chart” thing that plagues many, if not all, kids in grades sixth through eighth — from who’s most popular (this week), to who’s just trying to stay

afloat in the murky middle waters, to those unfairly labeled as loner oddballs or, worse, “losers.” All of this middle-school stuff abides in Alice Between. At one point, Alice (Ashley Anderson), spats with former friend Tory (Lauren Boyd). A student named Hatter (Anthony Campbell) overhears and comments: “Wow, I’m starting to miss the part where they were trying to kill each other with a dodgeball, instead of with words.” (Tory, by the way, is short for Victoria, a nod to royalty, as in that seething Queen of Hearts from Carroll’s original story).

Playwrights Neeley Gossett and Steve Coulter have set the fast-paced play in a middle school in the present day. Their script was conceptualized with significant input from metro middle-school students. All current sixth-graders in Atlanta Public Schools (about 3,000 students), are among 17,000 slated to see the show. Thousands more will see it at their schools. There also are a handful of public performances at the Woodruff Arts Center’s Rich Theatre. For more about Alice Between, we spoke with Christopher Moses, the Dan Reardon Director of Education and Associate Artistic ALLIANCETHEATRE.ORG

Alice director Rosemary Newcott (left, with Alliance artistic director Susan V. Booth) came up with the idea of resetting the peculiarities of Alice in Wonderland in a modern-day middle school.

Director for the Alliance. He oversees outreach and productions for youth and family audiences. Question: How did Alice Between get rolling? Christopher Moses: Rosemary Newcott, who directs this Alice, had the initial idea of wanting to use Alice in Wonderland as a metaphor for the middle-school experience. Q: Why does a fresh take on Carroll’s 152-year-old novel work well for today’s 11to 14-year-olds?

CM: Absolutely. There’s so much questioning and discovery in the formative years of middle school (along with) humor and absurdity that seem to be a hallmark of this period in our lives.

CM: A girl falls down a rabbit hole and into an illogical world. She experiences this madness, this world that follows a set of rules that are completely indecipherable to her. We’ve worked with, and heard from, so many middle-school students who revealed that that’s exactly how it is for them. Their struggles and anxieties are very real. They almost feel as if school rules and regulations sometimes work against them.

Q: Please tell us more about your work with Atlanta middle-school students.

Q: When reading the play, it almost seems like Alice in Wonderland meets Mean Girls. Because there’s also humor that bites, right?

We could not do this without their deep investment in its content and delivery. Then, once the play is in formal rehearsals, the

Every show at the Alliance (and elsewhere) begins with introductions, the sharing of costume, set and lighting designs with the actors, and a table read to see how the script sounds out loud.

professional cast and creative team continue to mine the story for its truth. Middle-school students deserve nothing less. Q: With last year’s Slur, which sprung from a junior-high classroom at the Paideia School, adults played the youngsters in the Alliance staging. Is Alice doing the same? CM: Yes. We hire professional actors who have the ability, insights and experience to dive into a new script and new story, and deliver the material. Also, it’s a practical matter, considering we tour the show to schools in the daytime. Q: There are only five actors in Alice Between. How to best convey that its story 12 ENCOREATLANTA.COM

unfolds in a school with tons of students? CM: One way to solve the problem: The audience becomes part of the school population. It’s a fun conceit to implicate the crowd into the school. Q: Talk about the characters here —all with direct links to Alice in Wonderland. For example, Cheshire, who lurks about with a distinct grin but doesn’t speak? CM: The characters are delightful. Cheshire is a physical role, even gymnastic. It was written with Joseph Pendergrast in mind because he has a very unique skill set — and can put on a disarming and very charming smile.

discover us. discover you. discover us. discover you. Alice Between lets the audience take a look at middle-school life and all of its drama through the main character of Alice in Wonderland. The symbolism is not missed on middle-school students and teachers as every day in middle school is a journey down the rabbit hole with surprises at every turn, characters that evolve and situations that explode and implode. The audience walks away with a new compassion for these volatile years and struggles while always rooting for Alice to find her way to friendship and acceptance. 

— Carol Gibby Eighth-grade ELA, Flat Rock Middle School Tyrone, Ga.

synopsis Alice is starting her first day at Landwunder Middle School. It’s an enormous school with peculiar rules — such peculiar rules they may verge on nonsense. Alice tries to find her footing by seeking out her (summer) best friend Tory. But Tory has turned into Victoria and Alice doesn’t recognize the profound changes middle school has wrought on her friend.

about the alliance theatre The Alliance Theatre is Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds onstage and off. Founded in 1968, the Alliance Theatre is the leading producing theater in the Southeast, reaching more than 165,000 patrons annually. The Alliance delivers powerful programming that challenges adult and youth audiences to think critically and care deeply. Under the leadership of Susan V. Booth, the Jennings Hertz Artistic Director, the Alliance Theatre received the Regional Theatre Tony Award® in recognition of sustained excellence in programming, education and community engagement. Known for its exemplary artistic standards and national role in creating significant theatrical works, the Alliance has premiered more than 100 original productions, professionally launching important American musicals with a strong track record of Broadway, touring and subsequent productions, including the Tony Award winners The Color Purple, based on the Alice Walker novel; Aida by Elton John and Tim Rice; and Alfred Uhry’s The Last Night of Ballyhoo. Recent musical premieres include Sister Act: The Musical, Twyla Tharp’s Come Fly Away, Bring It On: The Musical, Stephen King and John Mellencamp’s Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, Tuck Everlasting, Born for This: The BeBe Winans Story, The Prom and, most recently, Janece Shaffer and Kristian Bush’s Troubadour. The Alliance also creates and nurtures the careers of emerging writers through the Alliance/ Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, producing the world premiere for the competition winner as part of the regular season. The Alliance is deeply committed to Atlanta artists, showcasing locally based artists on a nationally watched stage, and sustaining Atlanta’s artistic community through the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab, providing developmental support and production resources for an annual roster of locally sourced performance projects. The Alliance’s dedication to providing access to the arts is reflected in its commitment to creating new work for all ages, and to bringing that work into classrooms and communities across Atlanta and throughout the region. More than 80,000 students each year experience age-specific professional performances and participate in acting classes, drama camps and in-school initiatives through the Alliance Theatre Acting Program and Education Department. The Alliance’s groundbreaking Kathy and Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young performances offer professionally produced, fully interactive theater for infants and toddlers; the Palefsky Collision Project invites high school artists to create and perform new civic-minded theater based on a classic text; and community acting classes and skill-building workshops engage professional artists, young actors, business leaders and curious learners of all ages. Twice recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for leadership in arts education, the Alliance Theatre Institute equips classroom teachers with theatrical techniques that link directly to school curriculum and have been empirically proven to improve student learning. MISSION Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds on stage and off. VISION The Alliance is a beacon of leadership for the national field, while remaining deeply rooted in and reflective of our local Atlanta community. VALUES We believe that acknowledging and embracing differences in identity is essential to a dynamic cultural conversation. This is why we are committed to equity, diversity and inclusion in all areas of our organization and programming.
