Alice (F, 17- 35) - Sassy, adventurous and curious, Alice has true imagination. Only she will be able to take on the nasty Queen of hearts in order to keep the wonder in Wonderland. A strong singer and dancer.
Marty McRabbit (20+, male, could be revised to be F) - Marty would much rather be at home eating carrots but has managed to get roped into Doc’s plan. A little panicked as time is running out, Marty is lovable. A good singer.
