With little time before the opening of “Alice in Wonderland” at Watertown High School, actors and crew were in a frenzy building the elaborate set and getting their lines and blocking down. A mix of anxiety and eagerness filled the air at rehearsals where students try to remember their lines. Meanwhile, backstage, huge set pieces were being painted and assembled.

“There’s still a lot to be done, but we’re very excited!” said play director Ms. Kirkpatrick a week before the play.

Opening night is Friday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. in the WHS auditorium. There will also be performances Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m., and Saturday night at 7 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door.

The cast contains a wide range of talented students, freshman to seniors, who are all dedicated to their roles and ready to do the best they can when the show opens. Many have a history in shows, participating in  past WHS shows, Watertown Children’s Theatre performances, and other events. This year, the fall play has 22 students, making it the school’s biggest cast yet.

The actors and crew are doing their best to make this an amazing show, so make sure to go see “Alice in Wonderland” at WHS!
