Alice in Football Land – plays for children

ALICE IN FOOTBALL LAND – PLAYS FOR CHILDREN

 children's plays

This fast paced retelling of the classic Alice in Wonderland is updated to modern times and set in a football stadium, where the Riverdale Rabbits are facing their rivals, the Duncan Dormice.

Alice, cheerleader for the Riverdale Rabbits, falls from the top of the pyramid and finds herself lost in the stadium desperately seeking Tod (the star quarterback) her ‘true love’. Along the way she encounters a strange group of characters; a coach who can’t control his players, a band leader whose band plays animals as musical instrument, the water boy who only serves water at his tea party, the referees who can’t decide what penalty to call, and the Cheshire Brand Hot Dog vendor who gives her cryptic and confusing clues. As Alice finds what she searches for, she realizes that she was chasing after the wrong things the whole time.

Alice in Football was performed at the Parkside Playhouse, Vicksburg, MS, June 24-26, 2010. Read more about playwright Richard Van Den Akker. Other children’s plays by Richard.

Off The Wall Plays – Online Play Publishers since 2010

[ad name=”Tweet”]

Off The Wall Plays is a  young, online publishing house whose aim is to attract quality playwrights with fresh, new ideas as opposed to our larger competitors.  We accept your plays free of charge. Off The Wall Plays will publish your play and get it out there for you. If your play sells, you will get 80% of the Royalties of each sale from the beginning.

Because Off The Wall Plays is a smaller publishing house, we have the resources and time it needs to get your play out there. We put a synopsis and sample of your your play on the front page of the website, when your play goes live, so it gets seen and not just filed into a genre with thousands of other plays. It stays in our top ten new plays for the next few months.We place a sample of your script on the website, not the full play so no one will be able to illegally use your work.

If your play sells well, we will add it to our “Best Sellers” list, automatically ranking it higher than ordinary plays, the price increases, and so do your Royalties. Plays bought to be used for a run or a season will also have license fees that will be paid by the organization that purchased the play, and 50% of those will go to the authors as well.

Once your play has been submitted, your play will be reviewed by our editor, who will contact you. Please have a look at our guidelines for submitting your play – by following these guidelines it will help your play sell.  We don’t mind correcting the odd typo, but plays with many spelling mistakes, missing punctuation marks and poor grammar will be sent back to the authors for correction before they can be considered for publishing, so please make sure yours is 100% first before you send it! We also try to get back to authors within a few days at most so they will know almost immediately that their script has been received and whether or not it will be published.

When the Princess Dandelion is kidnapped by the evil sorcerer Jeff and his two sidekicks Cotton and Candy, King Monty (who lives in a hall, not a castle because it sounds better) sends his servant Max to rescue her. Max is aided by a wandering bard, named Pip, who helps Max rescue the headstrong Princess (who gets kidnapped once a month, usually) using a magical necklace and the power of a sneeze to defeat him in this children’s fairytale play.
