Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Presented by Lakes Highschool Drama

Brookelle Barnes

Lakes High schools’ performances of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Tim Kelly were on Friday, April 22nd at 7pm and April 23rd at 2 and 7pm. I was honored to be able to go to the opening show! With about an hour-long performance, all the actors did an amazing job and made for an entertaining story. Throughout the 2 acts, I began to realize that the play was a combination of the book and the movie, it made for a fun and unpredictable series of events. All the performers were very well spoken and thorough with their emotions and portrayals of their characters and made time for comical scenes. I truly was overly impressed by the performance and think the drama team is great! 

Act 1: “We start out our journey through wonderland, at the bottom of a rabbit hole. Then Alice finds out that she can be queen if she gets to the correct square on the chess board. Her journey takes her to meet different strange creatures and ends up at the Mad Hatter table.” 

Act 2: “We pick up our journey at a flower bed of talking flowers. She is nearly there to receive her crown, when she is whisked off to the trial of the Knave of Hearts who she is a witness for. Will she make it out without making the Queen of Hearts upset? Will she ever find her way back to Dinah?”
