Hampshire Regional students to perform 'Alice in Wonderland' this weekend
WESTHAMPTON — Audiences can go through the looking glass this weekend at Hampshire Regional High School when the school’s drama company performs “Alice in Wonderland.”
The play, which takes place May 10 through 12, was adapted for the stage from Lewis Carroll’s tales of young Alice as she follows the White Rabbit into a magical wonderland. It will be performed in the style of children’s theater and is a great event for families, according to a press release.
Over 30 middle and high school students from all grades and school district member towns have been working for months to put on the play.
The production is co-directed by seniors Emilie Campbell and Devon Topor, both 17 and Southampton residents, as part of the drama company’s tradition of letting a senior or seniors direct the annual spring performance.
Both have been members of the drama company for years. After graduation, Campbell plans to attend the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams to study French, while Topor plans to attend Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, according to the release.
Performances of “Alice in Wonderland” will be 7 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets, available at the door, are $5 for general admission and $3 for students, senior citizens and children 12 and under.
