As summer approaches and classes come to a close, the class of 2017 is proud to present, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, adapted for the stage by Eva La Gallienne and Florida Friebus. The fun begins Thursday, June 1st at 8:00 p.m. followed by a show on Friday, June 2nd at 1:00 p.m. and eventually ending with our finale Saturday, June 3rd at 8:00 p.m. All three presentations will take place in the school auditorium and are open to the public. Admission is free, but a donation of $5.00 per person and $15.00 per family would be greatly appreciated, and will be used to cover the costs of creating sets and costumes.
Alice in Wonderland is an extraordinary adventure filled with a variety of idiosyncratic characters with distinct personalities. Each character brings something new to the table, making the play suspenseful and exciting. In Wonderland, we follow Alice’s journey through slithy toves and tulgey wood, meeting a cast of fictional creatures along the way. Wandering through the mysterious land, Alice encounters puzzling scenarios where she must use her clever wit to talk to her sarcastic and often selfish peers. As the story progresses, Alice finds herself coming more and more in touch with her odd surroundings, eventually, procuring a spot at the Queens’ table. Each scene is astonishingly unique and sure to have you on the edge of your seat, so be sure to come on down to one, if not all three, showings!
Please be aware that a mild strobe effect is used in two short scenes and one scene includes recorded music with a heavy beat.
We would like to wish the class of 2017 the best of luck in the show!
