Izumi profile
Izumi
All right, today's the start of the last half of our performances. Let's keep working hard till closing night!
Cheshire Cat profile
Sakuya
You got it!
White Rabbit profile
Tsuzuru
Yeah!
Alex profile
Masumi
Can I say something?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Hm?
Alex profile
Masumi
The Mad Hatter's lines are tedious and hard to understand and go on for way too long.
Alex profile
Masumi
The Cheshire Cat is way too energetic, and sometimes it makes him stand out in a bad way.
Alex profile
Masumi
The White Rabbit doesn't seem to be in a hurry at all, which makes the whole scene drag.
Alex profile
Masumi
The King of Hearts needs to come upstage more or else he gets lost in the crowd.
Cheshire Cat profile
Sakuya
What?!
White Rabbit profile
Tsuzuru
You're gonna say all of that right before we go on?
Professor profile
Itaru
Yeah, might be cool to say that sooner than later.
King of Hearts profile
Citron
But this is so like Masumi...
White Rabbit profile
Tsuzuru
You're right. Totally something he'd do.
Cheshire Cat profile
Sakuya
We'll try harder, Masumi.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Wow. Masumi seems to be right back to his old self again.)
Alex profile
Masumi
...That good?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah, it was all good advice. Timing aside, it was the right call to make as leader.
Alex profile
Masumi
Good.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Now it's all up to you and Itaru.
Professor profile
Itaru
Don't worry, we'll just go with the flow and do it our own way. It's all good.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Itaru seems different, too. Less stressed, maybe?)
PA system *Buzzz* (Curtain call)
Alex profile
Masumi
It's about to start.
Professor profile
Itaru
Let's go.
Mankai theater - Stage (School Courtyard). Daytime. 'Alex in Wonderland - Modern' costumes.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(First is the scene between Alex and the professor.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
(The professor lectures Alex for thinking that hanging out with his friends is a waste of time. This part is important because it ties in into the final scene.)
Professor profile
Professor
Alex, say there is a treasure of gold that only your friends can see, but it is invisible to you.
Professor profile
Professor
What could it be?
Alex profile
Alex
If we think about it logically, Professor, a situation like that could never exist in reality. Therefore, the only conclusion is that it is a dream. Are we done now?
Izumi profile
Izumi
(...Huh.)
Professor profile
Professor
Ah, excuse me- perhaps that was too simple. Then what separates dreams from reality?
Alex profile
Alex
.....
Professor profile
Professor
Alex, what you have in intelligence, you lack in imagination. Here, try drinking this.
Alex profile
Alex
And this is?
Professor profile
Professor
Plain black tea. A balm for the mind. Perhaps it will help loosen up your rigid way of thinking.
Alex profile
Alex
I doubt it, but I suppose I'll take your word for it. I know you're not gonna let me leave till I drink it, anyway...
Izumi profile
Izumi
(I can't believe it. Masumi is ad libbing!)
Professor profile
Professor
You're a tough one, as usual.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Itaru looks like he's having fun, and the're both acting more like themselves. This is already worlds different than before!)
Alex falls asleep. Alex' costume changes from Modern to Wonderland.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(After Alex drinks the professor's tea, he falls asleep and meets the White Rabbit...)
White Rabbit profile
White Rabbit
Oh dear, I'm running late! I must hurry!
Alex profile
Alex
Why are you dressed up like a rabbit? You a mascot or something? This is a school, not an amusement park.
Alex profile
Alex
Aren't you embarrassed, being in a bunny suit at that age?
White Rabbit profile
White Rabbit
S-Shut up! You've just made an enemy out of me and all my kin!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Pfft...
Izumi profile
Izumi
(That ad lib was basically their conversation when they first saw the costumes.)
White Rabbit profile
White Rabbit
What, are you claiming that you're dressed up like a college student, then? You certainly don't look like one to me!
Izumi profile
Izumi
(As he's arguing with the White Rabbit, Alex falls into the hole into Wonderland...)
Mankai Theater - Stage (Wonderland Forest). Daytime. 'Alex in Wonderland' costumes.
Boy Alice Background 2
Alex profile
Alex
A situation like this could never exist in reality. The only conclusion would be... that I'm dreaming?
White Rabbit profile
White Rabbit
Whoa! You sure you want to sit there?
White Rabbit profile
White Rabbit
Now what am I to do? I'm busy enough without having to babysit you!
White Rabbit profile
White Rabbit
...But I suppose I am to blame for getting you in this mess. Come on, then. I'll show you the way.
Alex profile
Alex
Damn right your will! This is all your fault!
White Rabbit profile
White Rabbit
My! Aren't you an arrogant one!
Izumi profile
Izumi
(The White Rabbit leads Alex to the Cheshire Cat...)
Cheshire Cat profile
Cheshire Cat
Hey, that's my favorite napping spot. Think you could move?
Alex profile
Alex
First it was a rabbit, now a catboy? Have you no shame?
Cheshire Cat profile
Cheshire Cat
And I was just getting used to the ears and the tail, too... Does it look that bad?
Audience Member 1 Pfft. That part wasn't in there before!
Audience Member 2 Maybe they're ad libbing!
Izumi profile
Izumi
(That's my Spring Troupe! They're acting just like they always do.)
Alex profile
Alex
This dream is giving me a headache.
Cheshire Cat profile
Cheshire Cat
Seems to me like you're the one dreaming, though.
Cheshire Cat profile
Cheshire Cat
If you wanna wake up, you'd be better off finding what you really need to do instead of taking a cat nap here.
Cheshire Cat profile
Cheshire Cat
Go see the Mad Hatter. I'm sure his tea party will wake you right up.
Alex profile
Alex
Tea again? Doesn't anyone here do anything other than laze around?
Cheshire Cat profile
Cheshire Cat
Yaaawn. Nighty-night.
Alex profile
Alex
.....
Audience Member 1 They're ad libbing a lot today.
Audience Member 2 It's funny.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(I guess I can relax now that they're in the swing of things.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
(The roles were written for them, but what really shines is their relationships and trust in each other.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
(The audience's reaction is totally different that on opening night, too. I think this could actually work!)
