A cast of 86 pupils from across the school and a production team of over 50 pupils and staff collaborated over just four weeks to create a fantastic adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.
Over its two night run, Down the Rabbit Hole had sell out audiences captivated as they followed Alice, played by Ella Burton, as she was sent spiralling down the rabbit hole due to the pressures of teenage life. School work, peer pressure, family conflict and the fear of the future are all too much for her to cope with.
The collaboration of drama, dance, music and art brought the traditional much loved characters to life as Alice met up with, sought advice from and gained perspective on her journey on how to grow up and stand on her own two feet.
The actors brought their own interpretation to their individual portrayals of such iconic characters.
Slick scene changes, excellent acting, singing and dancing gave the production a professional air that all involved can be rightly proud of. The adaptation of the tale by drama teacher Mrs Moffatt was both thought provoking and entertaining.
