Down the Rabbit Hole
Madhatter: “Have I gone mad?"
Alice: “I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are."
Over three nights at the beginning of May, members of our School community took a trip ‘down the rabbit hole’ at this year’s Drama production Alice in Wonderland. Three sold-out houses were treated to a vibrant and energetic adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic nonsense tale, written by Charlotte Chorpenning.
This year, for the first time, students in the Early Years were treated to a preview performance of the show and attended the dress rehearsal on their first day of Term 2. The Kindy students were thrilled to be able to watch their classmate Megan Corr (Dormouse) on stage, along with all the other cast members from Years 10-12, including Jacki Elezovich (Alice) and Cameron Purdy (White Rabbit.) Well done to all members of the cast for your commitment to rehearsals and dedication to making this production the best yet!
A special mention goes to the three Year 10 students who took on the role of stage management, Owen Norris, Holly Ruttle and Jana Stickling; they very capably ran the show from behind the scenes. Thank you to all staff, parents and students who assisted in any way with this year’s production, as these experiences would not be possible without support from so many people.
