Have you ever seen the Disney version of “Alice in Wonderland”? How about the live-action version? It is easy to see that both films have very different interpretations of the classic story. Well, on this Monday and Tuesday (Sept. 10-11, 2018) after school, you can audition to be a part of a new and unique performance of this show! 

The live show are scheduled for Nov. 16-17. The show’s stage manager, WHS junior Toni Carton, encourages all students to get involved. 

“We’re starting early this year because we have big plans in mind!” she said. “The drama department can only grow from here and we’re hoping for this to be the show that really kicks off the beginning on a path of improvement!”

If you are interested in being involved in an unconventional take on “Alice in Wonderland”, audition signups are on the board outside the Lecture Hall.

At auditions (which will be held in the auditorium) you will be asked to choose from multiple sides (scenes) from the show and to read as one or more of the characters.

(So do not fret if you’re not a singer. This isn’t a musical!)

It is a quick and easy process that launches you into two months of acting, creating, and working with others to put on one of the biggest plays WHS has done in the past few years.

Kacie Kirkpatrick, teacher of the new drama class at Watertown High, will be the director. It will be her second show at Watertown High.

If that’s not enough to entice you to audition, returning actress Yeraz Kaligin said, “Whatever your role, big or small, you’re gonna look forward to rehearsal every day after school and working with a close-knit group of talented individuals.”
