Kuranui College’s production of ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ has been hailed as one of the best productions the college has produced to date.
Written and directed by Kuranui head of drama Juanita McLellan, assisted by Linda Voice, this colourful and lively show was designed to appeal to all ages with an emphasis on family-friendly fun.
“Alice Through the Looking Glass was a lot of fun,” said Kuranui College Principal Geoff Shepherd. “The acting was outstanding, the singing superb and the direction spot on.
“It really showcased the amazing range of talent our students have. It really was excellent – a fantastic team effort.”
Georgia Wilson starred as Alice and James Upward as the narrator. Gavin Hosnell was a hit with the ladies as The Sheep and AJ Southey brought a touch of hilarity as a Horseman. Both Grace Voice and Jessica Buckham were stars of the show as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, singing a very funny and cleverly performed rendition of “Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better”.
True to the Lewis Carroll sequel to Alice in Wonderland, the main theme of ‘Through the Looking Glass’ explores knowing who you are and having a clear direction in life.
