REVIEW: Fall Play: Alice in Wonderland

Travelling down the rabbit hole was a unique and engaging experience.


Wow. Wow. Wow. These are just a few words to describe seeing Alice In Wonderland this past weekend.

My experience through the looking glass was unlike any other because it wasn’t a play full of smiles and sparkles. “Alice In Wonderland” had a darker setting with a steampunk vibe, but at the same time kept me laughing throughout the duration of the play.

Even though Alice, played by junior Paige Hope, killed the role as lead, it was really the set, makeup and supporting characters that made “Alice In Wonderland” so wonderfully odd and entertaining.

I had high expectations for what the set was going to look like before I saw the play and the set really made my walk through Wonderland so realistic. In addition to the set, I was really impressed by how vibrant the characters were.

Not only did the prosthetics and makeup during the show look amazing, but it definitely showed every character played their heart out on that stage. Watching scenes with The Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb or something as simple as a shattering plate convinced me these people were in fact insane.

“Alice In Wonderland” was interesting to say the very least, but also kept me entertained as I saw what it was like peering through the looking glass.
