Southshire Community School stages 'Alice in Wonderland'
NORTH BENNINGTON - The Southshire Community School invites the public to its adaptation of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18 at Theater D207, VAPA, Bennington College.
Join Alice in her journey down the rabbit hole as she meets a seemingly unending cast of unique creatures in a slew of fantastical experiences. You'll recognize familiar names and themes from this work that have become the stuff of popular culture. From the White Rabbit to the Cheshire Cat, and from the Mad Hatter to the Queen of Hearts, this story is full of characters that the students have enjoyed getting to know and be.
The Winter Play is a long-standing tradition at Southshire; one of two theatrical performances each year. This will be the thirty-second Winter Play in the school's history. Early each winter and late each spring the students' interest shifts from academic studies towards creativity and social interaction as they work on two theatrical productions each year. The entire student community, from the youngest to the oldest students, work together to develop and produce the play. They design and sew their costumes, create sets and props, and, of course, practice lines.
