The Oconto Falls High School Drama Team will present “Alice” at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 6, at the Falls Area Performing Arts Center. Prior to the show, the drama club will hold its annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser from 5-6:45 p.m. in the high school commons.
“Alice” is a one-act adaptation of the famous Lewis Carroll novel “Alice in Wonderland.” The curious young girl Alice, played by senior Leah Wons, follows the White Rabbit (Andrea Spang) down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where she meets a cornucopia of strange creatures.
A caterpillar (Peter Murphy) gives advice, the Mad Hatter and March Hare (Eja Sweig and Victoria Bain-Vrba) are always at tea time, and the Queen of Hearts (Kiana Archiquette) continually cries, “Off with her head!” The Cheshire Cat, portrayed collectively by Andrea Shamburek, Jennifer Deau and Madison Pecha, says that everyone in Wonderland is mad; and, therefore, Alice must be, too. Has Alice lost her head? Only the Cheshire Cat knows for sure.
The remaining members of the 2015 Drama Team are Adeline Pumplun, Ethan Winkler, Aliza Dickinson, Mara Grasse, Addison Hatch, Mackenzie Staidl, Rylee Krumrei, Jen Longsine, Kaitlin Kramarczyk and Paige Bain-Vrba. They are coached by faculty director Gayle Gander, with technical support by Ashley Baeten, Alex Radke, Rayne Winans and Camden Jackson. Wons is student director for the production.
Tickets will be available at the door for the cost of $8 for dinner and show or $5 for the show only. For information, call the theatre department at 920-848-4467, ext. 2092, or the high school main office, 920-848-4467.
