‘Alice vs. Wonderland’
WCHS play performances begin Friday at Prem Sahai Auditorium
Students at Webster City High School are taking a new spin on an old classic. Preparations for Alice vs. Wonderland are well underway with performances beginning Friday.
Angst-ridden adolescent Alice unwittingly trades places with Mary Ann, the Wonderland version of herself. Now Alice must travel through a fantastical teenage dreamscape, challenged by Carroll’s canonical characters every step of the way. Transforming every time she eats or drinks, Alice is played by six different actresses, each evoking a different aspect of adolescence. Together, they paint an entrancingly surreal portrait of a teenage identity crisis.
