The Dana Hall Middle School presents its fall play, “Alice,” on Thursday, November 17, at 7:30 p.m., in Bardwell Auditorium. The performance is free and open to the public.
Alice follows the white rabbit down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where she meets a cornucopia of strange creatures. A caterpillar gives advice, the Mad Hatter and March Hare are always at tea time, and the Queen of Hearts continually cries, “Off with her head!” The Cheshire Cat says everyone in Wonderland is mad, and therefore Alice must be, too. Has Alice lost her head? Only the Cheshire Cat knows for sure.
“Most of us have grown up with this strange story and some version of these characters,” said Director of Theater Daniel Morris. “By using movement, shadow puppets and projections, we as an ensemble have spent our rehearsal time exploring the themes of Alice finding what it means to be herself.”
Please note that Bardwell is not wheelchair accessible.
