We have an amazing drama department at school. Each year they put on a couple of different productions in the school theatre, and they do an amazing job of it. This year the senior school students performed a version of the very whimsical (and somewhat bizarre!) story of Alice in Wonderland. It was a fabulous opportunity for the kids to perform, made especially fabulous by the school’s very authentic approach to such productions. It’s a joy to watch the students be part of something so professionally produced.
It was a particularly joyful for me to watch, as my own daughter Kate had the leading role of Alice. It was a challenging role, performing in every scene and having lots of dialog (including the opening monologue). She worked really hard at rehearsals and when the final productions finally arrived, I was so very proud of her.
