This year’s school production was Alice and found it’s self a cast of over 100 students! We started rehearsals in October time, and we performed last week! Having had such a huge cast, it was a big challenge and required a lot of commitment (involving Sunday rehearsals!) Mrs Harcom, our ambitious director, students and teachers created an amazing set of a huge working clock and light up tea cups hanging from the ceiling! It made the play very atmospheric with the smoke and book shelves wallpaper lining the side of the stage. Miss Eyles and the dancers worked hard on the play’s choreography and performed them!
Characters included Alice, herself (curious and kind), the Madhatter(well, just… mad) and ofcourse, the Queen of Hearts (who stayed in character even backstage!) And the narrators, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, were comic characters and linked all the scenes.
We had great audiences and booked out 3 of 4 performances. Everyone worked so hard (it payed off!) and was a brilliant experience!
