Performers at Queen Margaret�s School venture into wonderland

Queen Margaret�s Lower School production of Alice, left audiences spellbound as they were transported down the rabbit hole to Wonderland. Many people commented on the professional standard of the girls� performances, the set and costumes which would not have been out of place on a West End stage.

Based upon Lewis Carroll�s Alice�s Adventures in Wonderland and the sequel Through the Looking Glass, the production provided all the fun, fantasy and frolics associated with Carroll�s fiction.

The performances ran from Thursday 23rd to Saturday 25th June and pupils from several local Primary schools attended the Thursday matinee along with many of the girls who will join QM in September. All the young visitors were enchanted by the colourful characters created by the girls.

The striking chequerboard stage was the perfect backdrop for many familiar scenes including the croquet game, complete with flamingos, the court scene and the Mad Hatter�s manic Tea Party. Clever use of digital technology enabled the Cheshire Cat to disappear and reappear most convincingly and Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee were an energetic comedy duo. Musical interludes were provided in the form of riddles transformed in song.

Huge congratulations go to the girls from Years I to IV who threw themselves into the production process, worked hard to learn their lines and stage directions, developed original and striking characters and co-operated brilliantly together as a team. Unlike the White Rabbit, their timing was perfect!
