The “Wonderland Rock Opera” play manipulates the nonsensical genre from the Lewis Carroll stories  “Alice and Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” to address real social tragedies affecting society. The musical brings to light the troubles and tribulations of pill abuse, be it pain medication, mood altering supplements, toxic herbal remedies made with contaminated processing water overseas or any pharmaceuticals, which produce negative physical and emotional side effects, damaging or ending relationships with family and, or friends. In the play, Alice is the victim who loses some of her intellect, spirit and soul as a side effect of the drugs and, or toxins. Romeo represents a friend or family member who loses his love. The dream occurs in Romeo’s head and is applied to remember his lost love and warn others of possible perils.

Type of Play

The play is a musical driven by the songs performed by each different character. When dialogue is applied, it is brief, rhythmic and in rhyme, similar or akin to the streamlined Shakespearean format. This musical is suitable for Broadway production, off Broadway or a street performance. Grand costumes and sets can be replaced with minimal character references, design and production.

The Set

The Broadway set utilizes the classical reference of a conflict, demonstrated during the historical period of WWII. This set grounds the theme as a tragedy. What was colorful, bright and magical in the Lewis Carroll story is now dark, burned and bombed. The stage consists of a two story adjoined tenement row house, partial bomb from the events of WWII. The second story represents the real world and the street is employed as the dream world of Wonderland. The top rooms of the tenement buildings have lost their roofs and are open to the night’s sky and susceptible to the will of the gods and nature. Alice sleeps in one room upstairs and Romeo attempts to sleep in his opposing tenement room, prospectively left and right. The Wonderland dream characters occupy the street level and are aware to the presence of Alice and Romeo.

The dream characters break the established fifth wall between the real world and the dream world by acknowledging the existence of both Alice and Romeo. Often the fairy tale creatures look up, toward Alice and Romeo, to verify that they continue to sleep, the dream remains alive, and Wonderland still lives. When the characters upstairs turn on a nightlight, the Wonderland spirits run and hide. Sleeping Romeo does not acknowledge the Wonderland characters because they only reside in his imagination. Alice on the other hand turns into a dream character when she leaves her room and enters the dream world, to interact with the magical creatures.

When Alice lies down to sleep, her primary associative dream characters (Cards 1-2, the Cat, Tweedledee and Tweedledum and the knight) sneak out of the door below her upstairs room. And, run back in the door when sleeping Alice wakes and turns on a light. Likewise, when the Romeo falls asleep his primary dream characters (Turtle Frog, White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, Blue Caterpillar, Egg Man and the Rat Mouse), slip through the door under his room to perform song and drunken dream dance on the Wonderland Street. The dream characters, slip, sneak and fall out onto the Wonderland Street to perform their act, dialog and sing the songs listed below.

Music

The music is simple and reminiscent of common street performers with their basic instruments. A primary band that wears costumes of soldiers can be implemented. Other instruments such as drums can be picked up and played by the Wonderland characters during the performance of songs. The guitar chords listed below have a capo at the 3rd fret, unless otherwise stated, altering the D major Ionian scale into a F scale.

Instruments

Acoustic guitars; stand up bass, tuba, marching band bass drum with shoulder straps, marching snare drum, marching band cymbals, tambourine, bells and a complete rock drum set are the required instruments. Sitar, and other instruments can be utilized for sound effects.

Characters

The Characters are real life people wearing worn out depression era clothes. Face paint and some character features mark them as based on Carroll’s traditional fanciful work. In a sense, this musical takes the magical gods of Carroll and brings them down to the dirty Wonderland Street as representations of earthly prophets. Traditionalist stuck in magical colorful pinwheel Wonderland will detest the play on these grounds alone but not all stories can be beautiful. It is also very debatable if Carroll’s work can is considered all that wonderful, since it is full of trickery and loaded with codes and hidden meanings. The end of “Through the Looking Glass”, is rather disturbing and describes a scene of violent animal cruelty. This book ends on this note. In nature, the most colorful creatures, flowers, mushrooms, snakes and spiders are always the most poisonous.

In Wonderland Rock Opera the characters will dance in a song, but it is not to project beauty, grace or strength and looks more or less like an attempt at removing sand from ones pants. The play is essentially song and dance, so the ability to not perform graceful dance or sing to perfect key and harmony are required.

Alice / Queen – Alice discovers she is the Queen of Wonderland. This is her transformation in the tragedy. She tends to walk into obliteration, even though warned by all the characters to stay away. In Carroll’s version Alice is tricked over and over to move onward into the next square. Here WonderlandRock Opera creatures attempt to warn Alice. When Alice enters Wonderland she is given a large pill the size of a car tire to paddle around. This is the labor of Sisyphus forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this action forever. Now Alice is forced to push her pill and she excepts this without question.

Sleeping Romeo – No name given always trying to sleep so he can dream of his lost Alice.

Turtle Frog – Romeo in Wonderland, lost his shell and now looks like a frog. Wears a green body suit, no shell. Stands where a house use to be, before it was bombed.  Some bricks and an old foundation are present. In place of the house there is a 50-gallon drum, which a fan is placed in at the bottom. Red and yellow paper flutters from to top to resemble a warming fire. The Turtle is always gathers objects to burn in his fire and occasionally throws a handful of confetti at the fan during dramatic moments.

Rabbit – Romeo in Wonderland, not white since he is so dirty. More or less a dirty rabbit but wears the most elaborate costume of all the creatures. Carries a shovel, which he has learned is much easier to make holes with.

Mad Hatter – Romeo in Wonderland, wears an anarchy shirt and sells tea from a street hot dog cart.

Blue Caterpillar – Romeo in Wonderland, sells cigarettes and newspapers off a news cart, which read nothing but war.

Rat Mouse – Steals objects and caries a sack, which he drops brown crumpled lunch bags out of to resemble mouse droppings. Everyone steps on these and gets pissed. Sometimes characters sweep these bags up, other times the droppings are picked up and thrown at the character Cross. When the rat is around, some stand on chairs, or shoo him away with a broom. He is a vector of disease and dreams.

Cross the Evil Tree Spirit – He is the gate, to the world or abode of dreams. Cross is a wooden tree, who holds out extended in each hand a represented fence, but comically looks rather more like two Christian cross. Everyone hates him, because he not only keeps real life people out, but also keeps the world of dreams in. If you wake up and do not remember your dream, this is the labor of Cross. On the other side of the tracks, Cross keep’s fantasy creatures trapped into a selective classical Carroll interpretation.

Chestire Cat – A large flat painted heart shaped circle for a head, carried by an actor who wears a black business suit and mask. One side of the face shows a happy face the other sad. The Cat is a persona of Alice in Wonderland but also represents the hot and cold polarized emotions of someone under the influence of pills or toxins. The face of the cat is turned to show a sad, or happy face in a scene, or in response to a joke.  For example, when the turtle is called a frog since he has no shell, the caty, cat thinks this is funny and turns his giant smiling face slowly to the crowed. The Cat likes to sit on things and lay in strange positions with her back feet up, similar to a real life cat.

The Dog – Intro Song to set the mood, tone and tragedy. Dogs are the first to greet you, which is why he is used to open the show.

Card One and Two– Alice in Wonderland. Card one wears a shoulder strapped protest sign with the number one. Alice in Wonderland. These two figures represent in a larger sense, a two party political system and also the bond between pill users/drug addicts. Similar to Tweedledee and Tweedledum they are best of friends and often hold hands.

Blue Butterfly – Alice in Wonderland, her escape hatch from everything. She can always live in peace, since her sole is a beautiful butterfly. This never changes even when she becomes the mean Queen and comes under attack by her nemesis the all-powerful Egg Man.

Sphinx – Black face with a human body and head of a dog. Afraid of only one thing, balloons. Wonderland creatures torture the sphinx with balloons. The guard of the Dream world. Not a persona of Alice or Romeo and is based on traditional Greek myth and Pyramid Science. The Sphinx, similar to Cerberus keeps the dream spirits from leaving. When Cross is the Door, the Sphinx is the lock, making this musical kind’a into a special kind of key.

Tweedledee and Tweedledum – The Queen’s jesters. They represent a cities two primary newspapers, ones the Post and ones the Sun. These papers do not cover stories concerning the plight of the pill users, or warn people of toxin in supplements made from dirty water offshore. The papers only list generic unassociated crimes, leaving the root cause and human struggle unresolved.

Egg Man – The nemeses of the Queen, not Alice. He is the most powerful Wonderland creature of them all. Existential like the Rabbit he can leave the Dream but no harm can come to him. Since he is such a strong fairy tail creature, he likewise holds this authority in the play. Egg man would represent Zeus.

Knight – Performs a modification of the original Lewis Carroll poem called Haddocks’ Eyes. The audience is encouraged to boo him by the other Wonderland characters. Only Alice loves the knight, who she marries with the entire audience who is outraged and encouraged to boo the event prior to intermission.

Bill the Lizard – A character that expresses pills are bad, but some small grass use is ok.

All the characters are missing something. The cat is missing his body, so he is physically not whole. The Turtle his shell and home, the Rabbit missed the time to react, Madhatter lacks restraint or social discipline, Blue Caterpillar, his peaceful loving Alice, Rat not being tall and big enough to confront the issues, the knight misses the mark and Alice misses the entire meaning turning into the Queen.

DRAFT..Wonderland Rock Opera Play..DRAFT

By Billy Jones

 

Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole

Main Storyline

Action – Alice and Romeo turn off their night lights and lay down to sleep.   The Dog sings his slow song to outline the over all meaning of the play.

Dog Intro Song – under construction

Action – Romeo awakes having problems sleeping and picks up a guitar and plays Alice a Love song called You.

Storyline – The songs “Intro” and  “You” are slow and set the mode for faster songs to explode and excite the emotions of the crowd. Slow songs are required to make the fast ones seem even faster and ok songs needed to make the great songs really standout. It is understood that a great play requires happy moments to make the sad moments more potent. Comedy is a requirement of a tragedy and vise versa. The audience is pulled through a roller coaster of swinging emotions, attempting to invoke emotional instability. This forces an artificial psychosis and makes the audience experience polarized emotional feelings of extreme happiness and sadness, a tragedy par excellence.

You Song – Posted

Capo 5th fret

Dm                                         C           G

There’s a flower in the vase soft and red

There’s silk sheets to place on the bed

There’s a soft song now playing in your head

Now where to go start when there’s, no place to end

There’s a window on the ledge just past the moon

There’s a spider on the web, on the ceiling of your room

There’s a door that opens and baby leads to you

Now, where to start if I still love you

Am                                   C           G

What was warm is now cold and blue

What was warm is now cold, baby blue

Dm                                         C           G

There’s butterflies and wings from the wood

There’s a little train blowing out what it could

There’s a soft song now, ringing in your head

Now, where to start, when there’s no where to end

There’s rain that falls all through the night

There’s a phone that wont ring or flash its lights

There’s a door that opens and baby closes too

Now, where to start blue blue blue

Am                                   C           G

What was warm is now cold and blue

What was warm is now cold, baby blue

Dm                                                 C           G

There’s Milk Thistle and a flower not to touch

There’s a little train, blowing out its love

There’s a sad song of seven lonely seas

There is a river of tears that pours from me

Action – Romeo turns off his night light and goes back to sleep. A bell sounds four times at, which point the Madhatter rips through the downstairs door, shocking the audience and begins to sing his song. The other Magical Wonderland creatures begin to sneak out of both downstairs doors and spill out onto the street below during the song. The Rabbit stays in its hole for now and makes no appearance yet.

Madhatter Song

 

A                        G                              A

They say I am crazy, they say I am a fool

They say I am wicked, they say I am rude

They say I come here, looking for you

No time for anything else to do

No time for anyone else but you

Low tea and a high tea after -noon

One to go and one to come soon

They say, I don’t sing, I only talk

They say, I don’t run and only walk

No time for any small talk

Low tea and a high tea with the frogs

One for me and one for the hair on the dog

They say I’m a joker they say I am crude

They say my cards read one and two

They say I come here to save you

D                                  G       A

No time for anything else to do

No time for anyone else but you

Low tea and a high tea London fog

A                                 G     A

They say am crazy about you

They there’s nothing I can do

They say I write all the songs

D                           G      A

No time for any small talk

Low tea and a high tea in Hyde park

One for the Queen and one for the dog

A                                 G                          A

They say you’re gone and lost in the dark

They we can’t walk or ever(even) talk

They say I come here looking for you

D                                   G      A

No time for anything else to do

No time for anyone else soon

Low tea and a high tea with the Salt

One mate for the sole and one mate for the heart

Action – The Madhatter drops a top hat reveling his head, which is covered in tin foil. The top hat is to be picked up by the Rabbit later. The hat hides an important key. The stage again erupts in the main Wonderland song. The lights go on in Romeo’s room when he sings his lines, and turn back off before the next singer performs.

Action – The Rat sneaks into Alice’s upstairs bedroom singing his song and swaying left to right. The tempo slows and the lights get dark on the stage. Alice awakes and recognizes the rat as being a magical Wonderland creature, not a common house vermin. As the Rat sings to Alice he is stealing food and gathering goods from her room.

Storyline – The Rat is the vector, he spreads disease and he spreads the dream.

Dialog

Rat – When walls in life cannot be broken through, the world of dream is all you can do, it’s all you can do. Through this door and through the keep, enter the world of Wonderland dreams.

Action – Alice follows the Rat down the stairs but Alice steps out of the door onto the street with the Rabbit in tow, not the rat. The Blue Rabbit begins to sing his song.

Storyline – The Rabbit navigates Alice through the world. When Charon is the ferryman to the Greek underworld, the Rabbit is the ferryman to the world of dreams. The shovel he carries also links him to The Grim Reaper or Death but represented as the, dream worlds equivalent. The holes that the rabbit digs, are in ones mind, to affect ones spirit, sole and intellect.

Many attempts were made to build off existing rabbit knowledge to produce this song. For example the negative condemnations applied by Jefferson Airplane / Starship in White Rabbit were confronted in an ideological sense, and in a form of a rebuttal. The Dirty Rabbit in Wonderland Rock Opera should be followed, when Jefferson Airplane suggests to Alice “go chasing rabbits And you know you’re going to fall”. Considerations were also made to respect the energizer bunny and the Jack the Rabbit novelty.

It was determined that this Rabbit is Alice’s passionate lover who just wants to run away from these events, which are about to unfold.  During the song the Rabbit steps in front of Alice blocking off the street. Alice, to her own demise repeatedly walks around the Rabbit, who is now forced to follow her down the dirty hole. Alice makes the Rabbit go into Wonderland , he goes to protect her and get her back out, if he can. Alice needs to accept the Rabbit as magical, in order for her to follow him. This she never does.

I’ll shake the world if that’s what you chose

A                                       G                         A

Cause I never loved a women like I loved you                                    2X

D                    G    A

Lets go, leaving soon,

We can start over somewhere new,

Cause this aint a place for a woman like you                                    2X

The Rabbit takes Alice by the hand and leads her to the Blue Caterpillar. The Blue Caterpillar character sells magazines and cigarettes off a wheeled city news cart. The newspapers read, nothing but War.

Storyline – The Blue Caterpillar analyzes Alice and performs a physical and emotional critique in his song. In a sense, challenging Alice to be stronger and more open to what she is about to experience.

Dialog

Rabbit – The Clock reads 3, its time to meet the Madhatter for tea.

Action – Alice follows the rabbit to the Madhatter who operates a small refreshment stand on the street corner.

Storyline – The tea represents the pills Alice continues to take, forcing her to go deeper into the dream world.

Dialog – No Diolog between Alice and the Madhatter, Alice has no interest in what the Hatter is saying, this is reinforced because no one can hear what he is saying. He tries to talk to Alice but only his lips and hands move, Alice wont make eye contact and is all but lost now.  Alice sings her song about gardens and flowers avoiding everything all together.

Storyline – This song was written from lines right out of the Looking Glass. It is the only song written after reading the book. Lewis Carroll does not name one flower in his book but does describe it as having a crown of thorns. This is not a Jesus / Promethean reference although. But a physical description of a flower.

From my exploration of the book it appears Carroll eludes to some poisons potion made from this flower and other flower extracts. The potion was or is used by churches to stupefy their patrons and acquire wealth / donations for the church. The only flower, which meets this description in the physical sense, is Milk Thistle. Think of it this as, swords men attack with swords, archers with arrows, priests and clergy attack with potions. Here Carroll is speaking of potions.

As Alice is tricked over and over to move forward in the book to the next square, or next “square meal”, she becomes more nonsensical like the other Queens “Red and White” until the final Last Supper. Blood and body sacrament are referenced and Carrel nicely adds human cannibalism to the scene where needed, Alice being almost eaten by spoons and cups.  Carrel ends the story with Alice violently shacking a kitty and speaking of nonsense, a clear victim of toxic poison. An additional additive to the described poison seems to be Violet flowers and or the Lilly. You can’t eat everything out there in the garden and flowers can be toxic. At concentrated levels, they can be extremely toxic. Toxins will remove someone’s better judgment. Pills seem to have toxins, so the theme is very well interchangeable here.

The pointy hated Red king in Carrel’s book is the pointy hated red Pope. Carroll describes him as dead in the cold grass, so I took this from Carrel’s dirty work.  One Pope only lived 33 days before the Masons were accused of doing the dirty. The books are evil have Masonic 33 junk and references to 666. Well, actually 999 that you need to read upside down and through a mirror and a mirror, or what Carrel describes as Through the Looking Glass.  Carrel was an Oxford grad and then a math professor at the religious school of Christ Church, which all the priests from the Church of London, the Queen’s church graduated from. I have to say, the books personally discuss me, I find them offensive and full of trickery. Alice’s song needed to come from this nonsensical perspective and reference. She has diminished her real world intellect at this point and only Carroll’s work makes sense to her now.

Alice Song

Capo 5th fret

Dm                                 C     G

The Rose spook to the Tiger Lilly

As the wind blew the daisy’s, side by side

The beds to hard to get any rest

And the weeds are here, full of scorn

The violet hides in the vines

From the flower with the, crown of thorns

Dm                                 C               G………………..play at 1.5 time

Lilly on the table with a cup and spoon

Bright as rain, dark as June

Chessmen walking, 2 by 2

The face in the clock said I come for you                                     2X

Dm                                 C     G

The Tiger Lilly said to the rose

I don’t know which way the flowers grow

Rest in the beds no rest at all, and

the weeds need pulling and the vines are long

The violet peddle cover the floor, and

Hide from the flower with the, crown of thorns

Dm                                 C               G………………..play at 1.5 time

Lilly on the table with a cup and spoon

Bright as rain, dark as June

Chessmen walking, 2 by 2

The face in the clock said I come for you                                     2X

Dm                                 C     G

The Red King sleeps in the grass

Circus full of clowns and pointy hats

Prepare the body, for the mass

Into the crypt goes the last, and

The Violet drops its peddles to the floor

In fear of the flower with the, crown of thorns

Dm                                 C               G………………..play at 1.5 time

Lilly on the table with a cup and spoon

Bright as rain, dark as June

Chessmen walking, 2 by 2

The face in the clock said I come for you                                     2X

Dialog

Madhatter – Alice those gardens hide things that go unseen, things that make the real world, make believe, and things, which can make you not be free.

Rabbit  – Only one sole knows this song, so off to met the turtle and off to meet the toad.

Action – The Rabbit take Alice to meet the turtle, who lives on the street and is homeless. He keeps warm by standing next to a burning fire.

Storyline – The Turtle lost his shell and home, and looks more or less like a frog.

 

Turtle Frog song

 

F#m                                 A                  D

A turtle is just another creature of the sea

A turtle is just another creature of the great big sea

A turtle who has lost his shell, is just a frog like me

G                                                      D                  A

The tortoise learns from the school of fish to swim free     (2x)

G                                    A

But, a turtle who lost his shell

G                                    D

A turtle who’s lost his shell

F#m                  G                  A

Home to the head and tail

G                  A                  D

Can only live with the frogs

Can only live in the pond

F#m                     A                  D

Once my home was not on the street

Once I had the ocean at my feet……….but

A turtle who has lost his shell, is just a frog like me

G                                                      D                  A

The tortoise learns from the school of fish to swim in the sea       (2x)

G                                    A

But, a turtle who lost his shell

G                                    D

A turtle whose lost his shell

F#m                  G                  A

Home to the head and tail

G                  A                  D

Can only live with the frogs

Can only live in the pond

Dialog

Frog – But, the Sphinx is worst than all. Lost in a world, which is all but gone. Hanging onto the last Queen, and what he thought, that everyone, will be wrong, everyone will be wrong.

Action – Alice runs to hide over welmed at this point and the Wonderland creatures send for Bill the Lizard to get her out. Bill sings his song, which states pills are bad, smoking small amounts of hash is just fine.

Bill the Lizard

Capo 5th fret

 

Dm                           C bar       G

My name is Bill and I only get high

I got me a ladder to touch the sky, but

One pill takes you up and others take you down

Think your going high and you fall to the ground

My pencil squeaks on the slate board

Hold the book to the glass and read the words

Chorus

Dm                  F                  C                  G

Asses to Ashes, dust to dust

Dm                  C      F      C                 G

My dear Alice what have you done

Dm                  F                  C                  G

Asses to Ashes, dust to dust

                    Dm              C       F                     G

you’re in a, burning house built on the sun

                     Dm         C        F         C    G

you’re in a, burning house built on the sun

Dm                           C bar       G

My name is Bill and I only get high

I got a hand full of matches and a glass pipe, but

But, One pill makes you live and others make you die

You got a circle of eights and cats eyes

My pencil squeaks on the slate board

Through the looking glass you can read the words

Chorus

Dm                           C bar           G

My name is Bill and I only get high

Two small hits off a hash pipe, but

But, these pills are smoke mirror and lies

Sands of poison that fall from the sky

My pencil squeaks on the slate board

My looking glass see broken homes

 

Chorus
Action – All the Wonderland creatures now circle Alice and she disappears in the crowed. A song erupts between the characters.

You’re the Queen

 

A       G                  D

You are the Queen of hearts                                                      Rabbit

It’s time to show your cards                                             Mad Hater

Your deck ain’t cut, shuffled or clean                                    Rat

You can take me as your joker, baby or king                           Frog

Action – Alice reappears from the circle of characters wearing the clothes of a poor Queen of hearts. In place of a queen’s scepter is a toilet plunger, which everyone is afraid to be touched by.  In place of a crown is a pot with herbs and flowers growing out of it.

Storyline – Alice evolves into the Queen of hearts, emotionally cold and an analogous to Lot’s wife described as a Pillar of Salt.

Note: The Queen song below might be turned into dialog, since a better song has been sketched up. The current Queen song seems too polished and clear for someone under the influence of toxins.

The Queen’s Song

 

A                              D                           A                                               (#) of times sung

You think I am made of flowers and hearts

I think you got me all wrong,

Paint red all the royal cards

G                        D                        A

Off with their heads off with them all

G                           D            A                  G

2 cups and a fool, move on, move on

A                        G                        A

You think I am small but I am large

My pillar stands over 10 feet tall

From my Column you can reach the stars

G                        D                        A

From where I stand you can strike the gods.                                                                        2X

A                  D                  A

You think I am sweet but I am hard

I steal the love from any (every) man’s heart

Paint red the white armies and their ponds,

G                        D                        A

Off with their heads off with them all

G                           D            A                  G

Knights and rooks, move on, move on

A                        G                        A

You think I am small but I am large

My pillar stands over 10 feet tall

From my Column you can touch the stars

G                        D                        A

From where I stand you can fight the God of War Mars.                                                2X

A                  D                  A

You think I am made of sour sweets and tarts

I take the love from all man’s heart

Paint red the white armies and their ponds,

G                        D                        A

Off with their heads off with them all                                                                        2X

A                  D                  A

Sandman, Dream dream on

Sandman Dream, dream on

Action – When the Queen sings “Sandman dream, dream on” she points to Romeo who is sleeping in real life.

Dialog

Queen – Hearts turn cold and then to ice, paint thoughts flowers blood red, from white.

Action – Alice changes into the queen and now holds court and brings in her controlling characters and unrelated issues and conflicts into the picture to avoid dealing with her tragedy unfolding. The characters or friends she brings into the story strengthen her position in the court. The Queen brings in Tweedledee and Tweedledum to her court first, for entertainment and song. This is an attempt to take over the play and dream. This is an attempt to make Romeo’s dream into her dream, make his play into her musical. Tweedledee and Tweedledum sing a song, which references the Idioms, same old song and dance. The bond between Tweedledee and Tweedledum is that they share common ground in the tragedy. Pill users or drug addicts make these kinds of bonds between each other.  One zombie turns others into being zombies because no zombie can handle being a zombie all alone. Tweedledee and Tweedledum sing their song together, alternating and finishing each other’s lines.

Tweedledee and Tweedledum Song

 

A                        D            G

Tweedledee and Tweedledum

Everybody does the same dance and song

What Oz says the queen has done

Tweedle did you look up at the Sun

Yes, there’s no new news or written words, hehehe

How’s that old rattle playing now

Seems to always entertain the simple crowed

Tweedledee make a joke and rhyme

Tweedledum dance in a line

Doc Oz says double time                                                 4X

A                        D           G

Tweedledee and Tweedledum

Everybody does the same dance and song

Did you here what was never wrote

Tweedle did you look up at the post

No, New news or written word hehehe

How’s that old drum beat now

Seems to always entertain the simple crowed

Tweedledee make a joke and rhyme

Tweedledum dance in a line

Doc Oz says double time

A                        D                  G

Tweedledee did you get the word

Some people read and others wont learn

Tweedledum did you make that up

No one can be that dumb

Its true, its true and almost fun

I’ll shake my rattle, I’ll beat my drum

Entertain the simple souls

They always do what they’re told

Tweedledum dance in a line

Doc Oz says double time

Action – The Knight approaches the court with the Cat in tow, who is then handed over to the two Cards. The knight kneels to pay respect to the Queen and reads a poem, which is a modification of an original Lewis Carroll poem called Haddocks’ Eyes. All the other characters shake their heads and swing their arms in true disbelief.  They boo and hackle the knight. Even the audience is encouraged to also hackle the knight during the reading of the stupid poem.

Storyline – Alice unwilling to confront the real problems of pill abuse, addressed by the Madhatter, Blue Caterpillar, Turtle Frog, Rabbit and Bill the Lizard brings forth issues irrelevant to her situation. The Cat, a lower figure of lesser importance is brought forth to be judged on Cat problems to avoid confronting the main pill issue theme.

The booing and hiss of a represented Carroll poem is akin to a robot attacking its creator, god being attacked by his or her creation or a pyramid attacking its eye.  What Carroll made colorful, vibrant and magical simple put, is being destroyed.

Dialog

Knight – I look for butterflies out in the wheat,

I caught the Chestire Cat, riddled here with flies

Judge him as you must but it must go

Down the street, avenue, out on the road.

________________________________________________________________________

The audience is permitted a 15 minute intermission at this point in the play. They leave booing and upset over the events, which have unfolded, not to their satisfaction. This period is required to both settle the crowd vocally and emotionally. At this point the audience is emotional ushered into a state of anger, which is allowed to brew during intermission.

________________________________________________________________________

Action – The audience comes back to their seats to find a courtroom now set up on stage.  The Dog character acts as the prosecutor for the Queen when the Cat is left to her own defense. The trial of the Cat and Dog begins, well bounded in a long rivalry.

Dialog

Dog       Nonsensical Court of unknown genre is now in session.

 

Court of the Queen Song

 

F#m           Bm     A           G

You stand here guilty of crimes                                                    Dog

How do you plead for your life                                             Dog

I see no meaning to this I read                                             Queen

Off with this criminal, off with his head                                    Queen

Dialog

Cat     Please please, I am not the one

I did not soil your pills or the rug

The dog can’t bark but he can still runs

Action – The two cards take the Cat to the gallows to hang him, but have a problem finding a neck.
Storyline – The old battle between the Cat and Dog is used to avoid the real issues at hand and main theme of the story.   To continue to use pills, the Queen needs to find other issues to take control of the play.

Action – The Queen marries the knight who than becomes Alice’s puppet king. No one talks during the ceremony, everyone is speechless. Alice not willing to listen to people who cared for her now brings forth her own personal demon, her nemesis represented as the Egg Man.

The Egg man appears now, but outside of Worderland, dancing in the upstairs rooms of Alice and Romeo. At this point the Dream world is making an attempt at breaking though into the real world. Cross begins to lose ground and looks frantically worried. The Sphinx comes to attention but the balloons are not on in his favor.

Storyline – The Queen is now in a state of confusion, which means she is now susceptible to becoming a target of a much stronger and powerful fairytale deity.

The Egg Man Song

D                                               A        G

The Egg Man said, I’ll play a fiddle tune,

So I can Sing and Dance under the moon

The King and the court said no music in there halls

If you make your noise I am gona beat on the walls

D                                  G     A

I aint good at nothing else I do,

I don’t follow a crowd,  I don’t listen to you, and

All castles fall with their King,

up in the air high on a string

D                                           A                   G

And, All the kings men and all the kings men, said

the egg mans on the wall dancing again. and

The archers drew their bows with the wind, and

shot their arrows in the dark as high as they can

D                                                 G          A

But I am round like a pie and they all fly off

The only way to get me is if I slip and fall

All bridges cross an open space

When one falls down there is another in its place

D                                    A            G

Well, I can last much long then you,

I am light on my feet, I got dancing shoes

The King and the court said no music in there halls

If you make your noise I am gona beat on the walls

D                                                 G               A

Well, I can go from one end and back and forth,

When you move around you need Soldiers and guards

And, All kings come with castles and walls,

Each brick and stone wont last As long as this song

D                                                      A                   G

And the King and the court said no music in there halls

If you make your noise I am gona beat on the walls

Beat on those walls say I don’t care

I like the rhythm playing up in the air

D                                            G                     A

All the kings men and the famers and the Jews, said

If we kill the king, we can dance too

And, The castle fell to its keep

The king on a string and pope with his sheep

Action – The Queen attempts to confront and attack the Egg man, who has taken up position in the real world. The Queen, Knight, Cards, Dog and friends Tweedledee and Tweedledum are prevented from leaving by the Sphinx and Cross. The Sphinx is now standing guard next to Cross, at the gate. It appears now that Cross represented a one way door. The damage and changes in one’s personality from pill use is permanent and the psychosis lasts forever. A victim’s reality will always be altered to some degree by the toxins from the pills. Real life to them, is a foggy world of dreams.

Dialog

Sphinx – Four numbers one and three, Alice this answer I did need, your time is out, you stay with me.

Action – The Queen now turns back into Alice, changed forever as the Sphinx sings his song.

Storyline – The sphinx riddle was not solved and Alice is stuck in the Dream world. Alice can now look up to Romeo from the gate and Romeo wakes to look back at her stuck between two worlds. The Sphinx sings his song.

Sphinx song

A         Em       A

You failed to see

You were told what you would be

When you’re wrong, there’s no right

D                        A                      Em

One foot in the day, one in the night

A                 Em           A

You eat all the poisonous treats

You didn’t listen to know bodies pleas

Your head to hard to be free

D                        A                      Em

What’s up now down with me

Bm            A           Em

Let it go, baby let is be

Dear angel how’s that cup of tea

A                 Em               A

You can’t escape this dream

You wont a wake from your sleep

Give me, one two and three

D               A               Em

You lost every single key

A                 Em           A

You ran from all who can see

Theirs no escape or relief

When your wrong there’s no right

D                                A          Em

When you hold the day and night

Bm            A           Em

Let it go, baby let is be

Dear angel how’s that cup of tea

Dialog

Sphinx– My service great four, one time in Thebes. Now, I hold onto the last Queen.

Action – Romeo sings his real world song to Alice separated by the dream world. Alice listens to the song carefully, sad that the events were not different but shows little emotion.

Storyline – Romeo can spiritually reach through the dream now and send a message to Alice. Alice cannot talk back or send any message because the Sphinx prevents this. The pills have destroyed her ability to feel emotion, she can only think of how bad her situation has turned out. Turning her now head up to the sky and down to the ground, as if answering yes and no, realizing she had done something wrong but was not able to admit to her own down fall. She takes no responsibility for her actions.

Romeo’s Ending Song

 

D                                                             G

My love is as deep as a sea and goes on forever

I ask you how long that will last and you say never

There’s a break in the night and the night only gets darker

And, no one steps in and out of the dark in the ally

D                                         A                             G

I thought I was right, I was right and only went crazy

D                                                                             G

I would climb a mountain higher than the highest cloud

I would walk in the desert hotter, than the hottest sun

I would meet you in the folk of the river where you came from

D                                  A                          G

I thought I could leave baby but I couldn’t run

D                                                                    G

I was tied to a post and whipped baby to the bone

Stripped and carried through the street past your home

Placed on a mill and ground to a stone

D                                  A                                  G

I spent many nights shaken like a leaf but all alone

D                                                                           G

I thought I had the power of god, but his spirit left me

I opened the door and the devil stepped in to me

I was saved by my sole but my sole denied me

D                                 A                             G

I came to you in the night but you rejected me

Action – Alice moves away from Cross and the Sphinx lost in a Wonderland she has no chance to control. The Rabbit in a last ditch attempt, causing him to losing Alice forever, storms onto the stage, emotionally upset and drops off a blue suitcase.

Alice finds this suitcase, helplessly falling to her knees. She opens the suitcase and pulls out a blue pajama adorned the butterfly wings.  Laying on the floor and curling into a ball she struggles to put on the new outfit. This is in respect to a butterfly larva stretching and pulling to crawl out of its cocoon. The changes to Alice are permanent, but her spirit is freed by the love the Rabbit. The Blue Butterfly now appears to help Alice fly back up to Romeo’s room. Leaving the dream world. She sings a song for Romeo.

Storyline – She is crossing over and out of the dream and pill use, but changed forever, the love remains as memories never to be lost.

Old Edits and Songs below that did not make the final cut

I wrote about 8 rabbit songs before I got one I really liked.

Rabbit Song 1 (Hate it so much)

A                  D                        G

I am your Captain and your thief

Come Come lets go, follow me

I navigate you through your dreams

Two silver coins is all you need

I make circles in the sand

It is, my vision, that creates this land

Come come, Alice lets go

There is only one place we both know

D                        A                      G

There is only one place we both go

There is only one place we can go

A                  D                  G

I am your flower and your leaf

Come Come lets go, follow me

You grow stems from these seeds

Silver ribbon and paint is all you need

I make circles to follow down

My feet make all the thumps in the ground

Its my vision that creates this land.

Come come, Alice lets go

D                        A                      G

Follow me to the place we both know

Follow me to the place we both know

A                                  D

Em   Em             D  D             A  A

OooOoo           OooOoo     Ooo Dear

Its too late,       to late        I fear

Their cruel and wicket plans, your fate

But, I stole the key to their gate

Princes, the time is running late

Em   Em             D  D             A  A

OooOoo           OooOoo     Ooo Dear

Its too late,       to late        I fear

The watchmen sell herbs as fine wine

Their cruel and wicket plans your fate

Princes, the time is running late

Em   Em             Bm Bm             A  A

I take you down to your dream

I take you down to your dream

I am a Ex—istential being

OooOoo           OooOoo     Ooo Dear

Its too late,       to late        I fear

Past the shield and stone

Their cruel and wicket plans, your fate

But, I stole the key to their gate

Princes, the time is running late

Em   Em             Bm Bm             A  A

I take you down to your dream

I take you down to your dream

I am a Ex—istential being

On the influential, nonsensical seen

When there is everything and anything to believe
