Alice in Wonderland 2017

students from The Wilnecote School have been performing in their annual school production, Alice in Wonderland. With Olivia Short (Year 11) in the title role, Jack Johnson (Year 10) as The Mad Hatter, Lara Lennon (Year 10) as The White Rabbit and Bryony Wyatt (Year 7) as The Queen of Hearts.

The performance, which has a cast of forty students from all year groups, tells the classic tale of Alice’s adventures into the strange land of Wonderland with a slightly dark twist. Alice meets The Duchess and her crazy cook, The Cheshire Cat, A Caterpillar and a Mock Turtle to name but a few.

Students, who have been rehearsing for the show since October, are now seeing their hard work pay off. This week has been a hectic one with two dress rehearsal performances to local primary schools and three shows. All the students involved should be very proud of what they have achieved.

The student’s performances have been brilliantly supported by an amazing set, which really brings the show to life and gives us an insight into the magic of Wonderland. The set was created by Art teacher Mr Thomas and a group of his talented Year 9 students. The play has also been enhanced by the hard work of technician Carl Savage and students from his Tech Club who have provided lighting, sound and special effects which set the scene for the show.

Leader of Learning for Performing Arts and the show’s Director, Miss Julius, commented, “It has been fantastic to produce a show which has been so well supported and seen so many students getting involved. In addition to the cast, set designers and tech crew, this year we have been lucky enough to have students and staff who have supported the show by working Front of House each night as well. A massive thank you and well done to everyone who has been involved in making this show such a massive success.”
