WATERFALL College presented Alice Through the Looking Glass, in partnership with Theatrefolk, on Thursday, May 31 and Friday, June 1.

The show saw 28 pupils flexing their artistic muscle, giving the audience many laughs, and even a few tears.

Waterfall College Principal Jeanette van der Merwe said they are dedicated to offering drama, music, design and public speaking to all their pupils. “This year’s drama production has entertained our families and friends, while simultaneously raising the bar of culture, at Waterfall College.” she said

Costumes, set and lighting created the backdrop for a delightful experience, enhancing an impressive display of talent by the students.

Production Director, and Head of Drama at Waterfall College, Greg Kyle said they chose the Lindsay Price script because they wanted to do something different, in terms of style, from previous years.

“This is a sort of dreamy, surreal, non-comedy, and unlike the parodies we have previously done,” said Kyle.

The audience was introduced to a charming cast of characters. Alice, the leading character, was played by grade 11 pupil Abigail Kane, drew the audience into Alice’s other-worldly experience and explored the wonderland through the looking glass.

From the delightful talking flowers, to the White Queen, played by grade 12 pupil Brooklyn Webster, and the feisty Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, played by grade 12 pupil,Tafadzwa Thabethe and Andraya Kruger, all aspects of Alice’s world were on show.

At the end of the final performance, on Friday night, there were few dry eyes in the hall as Head Boy Dylan Cooper, who played the White King as well as being a wonderland chorus member, thanked Mr Kyle for his guidance.

The annual drama production is a team effort by parents, students and staff of the school. Waterfall College is grateful to all those who have made Alice Through the Looking Glass a memorable showcase of talent, fun and entertainment.

Waterfall College forms part of Waterfall Schools, a dynamic educational hub offering a personalised journey from 12 months to grade 12, all within a uniquely beautiful South African setting.
