Sandstone Middle School students will present “Alice @ Wonderland,” an updated version of the classic children’s story, Nov. 16-17 in Hermiston.


HERMISTON — A modern re-telling of a classic children’s story features the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts and a contemporary Alice, complete with a cell phone.

Students from Sandstone Middle School will present “Alice @ Wonderland” in a pair of public performances. The shows are Thursday, Nov. 16 and Friday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. in the school’s commons, 400 N.E. 10th St., Hermiston. Tickets are $3 each.

Most of the costumes were donated by Hermiston High School. A stage crew created the backdrops and props, and food props for the show were created by Mindy Walchli’s life skills class.

“The audience will be surprised by the amount of hard work students have put forth over the quarter to grow as performers, especially the students who are returning from the musical last year,” said Chelsea Geer, language arts teacher.

The production was made possible from proceeds and donations from last spring’s performance. For more information, contact Maria Duron at 541-667-6036 or maria.duron@hermiston.k12.or.us.
