Old Rochester Drama Club to present ‘Alice in Wonderland’

Oct 14, 2022

MATTAPOISETT – Old Rochester Regional High School Drama Club’s Fall production of Alice In Wonderland will be staged on Nov. 17, 18, 19 at 7 p.m. and November 20 at 2 p.m.

Director Maxx Domingos and Assistant Director Sarah Whinnem are celebrating their second year as directors for the Old Rochester Regional High School Drama Club.

Principal cast members are Cattarinha Nunes as Alice, Calder Eaton as the Cheshire Cat, Kathleen Dunn as the Queen of Hearts and Jorge Carrillo as the Mad Hatter.

“Alice in Wonderland'' by Anne Coulter Martens presents a quaint and simplistic version of Lewis Carroll’s timeless classic. As the curtain rises, Alice slides into view at the end of her long fall down the rabbit-hole. It is a more delightful place for the audience than for Alice, who is trying desperately to get back home.

She tries to get help from Wonderland’s craziest neighbors, the Mad Hatter, the Rabbit and from the very nice Cheshire Cat. Throughout her exploration of Wonderland, Alice comes to realize that finding the door that matches her special key is a more dangerous adventure than she thought.

There are plenty of laughs and references to pop culture which make this a play best for ages 5 and up.

The ORR High School is currently a latex-free building. Due to issues with latex elastics, they ask that no flower bouquets be brought inside the school. 

Tickets will be available at Marion General Store, Isabelle's in Mattapoisett and Friends’ Marketplace in Rochester and also at the door. Students & Senior Citizens $10, General Admission $12.
