Following the resounding success of the 2010 production of The Grinch, the students at St Winifred’s School are once again poised to take your breath away.
This year’s production of Alice In Wonderland, written and directed by AnneMarie McConney, promises to be a spectacular extravaganza.
With a cast of 107 students, ranging in age from seven to 16, and a high level of commitment from both the children and their parents, rehearsals took place throughout August and have continued every weekend since school reopened.
Parents have shown their support, building props, sewing costumes, selling tickets and providing support in many areas during performances.
The team grew in October with the addition of about 25 members of the backstage crew, who help to create the magic from behind the scenes.
The camaraderie among the adults and students as they work together is said to be remarkable, and the final product created by this family nothing short of amazing.
Inspired by the Lewis Carroll book, this story follows the journey of Alice, a young dreamer who finds her creative ideas ridiculed by those less imaginative.
Alice enters her own Wonderland and meets a host of unique characters who involve her in their battle to defeat the formidable Red Queen.
Alice must believe in herself and trust that anything is possible in order to achieve the impossible.
With breathtaking sets and costumes, beautifully choreographed dances and comical characters, this spectacular look into Wonderland will delight and amuse the whole family. (PR)
