After just four months of preparation, almost 50 students at St Margaret Ward Catholic Academy have put on three performances of Alice in Wonderland.

The after-school drama team, comprised of 41 students and guided by Miss O’Neill, has been practicing and preparing for the performances in their own time.

Included in the production team is two technicians who specialised in the lighting and sound and an aspiring makeup artist who did the make up for the cast.

This production is unique as all the drama students were involved. Key parts were played by more than one individual – so we had Alices and White Rabbits everywhere!
