NORTH EAST — If you’re looking for a way to celebrate your un-birthday, the North East High School drama club’s junior production of “Alice in Wonderland” on Friday, April 12, and Saturday, April 13, might be the right fit.
“Students have been working for several months on bringing this junior edition of the classic Lewis Carroll tale of a young girl who tumbles down a rabbit hole into a Wonderland of curious, magical, and musical scenes,” said April Fritts, a theater and English teacher at NEHS, in a prepared statement.
There will be a 2 p.m. matinee show April 13, preceded by a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at 12:30 p.m. where attendees can meet the characters they will be seeing perform.
Fritts said she “felt that expanding the experience to include a fun event like a tea party, where little ones can enjoy meeting the characters before seeing them on stage, will bring the story to life and offer plenty of memory making opportunities for families to share.”
Tea party guests must register beforehand on the school’s website to ensure there will be enough food and activity supplies for everyone. The cost of admission is $10 and includes both the tea party and matinee show.
There will also be performances at 7 p.m. on both April 12 and 13. Admission for those shows is $6. Proceeds from the shows and tea party support the NEHS drama club.
