Elementary students take on production of Alice in Wonderland

by Ashley Clark
After months of rehearsals, designing sets, and making props, St. Joseph’s School students performed their rendition of Alice in Wonderland.
This modern retelling of the classic children’s story has all of the characters we know and love, including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, and the Queen of Hearts.

Staff and students praised the show for its humour and appeal to all ages. The colourful sets and detailed costumes were all created and designed in house by many different talented staff and students.
Over 80 students from grades 4-8 participated in the production. Even those who didn’t want to act found ways to get involved either with props, prepping costumes and makeup, or manning curtains, lights, and microphones.
Special thanks to Director, Madame Wright, who is also the grade 3 French immersion teacher. This is Wight’s 14th performance since beginning her teaching career at St. Joseph’s. These performances would not happen without her leadership. Of course, many other staff members contributed in different ways to help Wright pull together such a massive undertaking. St. Joseph’s community feels blessed to have so many dedicated staff members willing to work together and put in many extra hours of work to pull off production of this calibre.
