‘Alice like you’ve never seen her before’

Big ideas brings big obstacles, but this didn’t stop ACG Parnell College’s successful senior drama production of Down the Rabbit Hole, written and directed by Performing Arts teacher Amanda Burnett.

Ms Burnett took Lewis Caroll’s original Alice in Wonderland text, mixed it with the Disney play, the musical, the movie and other adaptations to produce a fresh and challenging script. The result was quirky, comical and magical.

Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my favourite stories with its colourful characters and exciting imagination, but this adaptation was Alice like you had never seen her before,” she said.

Performed at the end of term 2, the production was, conceptually, one of the most challenging the school has put on. The play didn’t have just one Alice, for example, but four. Male and female. Ms Burnett credited her students for its realisation.

“Creating a world that comes from the page took hours of work, lots of paper cuts, dedication and creativity. The cast were not just the actors, but they were collaborators, designers, costumers and prop makers. Every moment of the play was a testament to their dedication, passion and heart,” Ms Burnett said.
