Pavilion Spotlight: DAPA's Alice In Wonderland

Posted: Updated:

Have you met Alice? She's chasing the white rabbit through a world that is not her own.

"The white rabbit is really frantic and he runs around all the time. He's really crazy and worried," said Adam Greenfield who plays the white rabbit.

For the past two months, 70 area actors have been rehearsing this fast-paced stage adaptation of the timeless film.

"The other actors are so great. This play is cast so perfectly. I couldn't have cast it better myself," said Maddie Lukomski who plays Alice. "Everyone does it their own way and it's amazing every single time. I click with them."

Bob Wendland has directed more than 15 Dakota Academy of Performing Arts plays. He says this production of Alice In Wonderland is his favorite, and the actors have really embraced their parts.

"I think the reason why this show has resonated with a lot of them more than any they've done in the past is because the moral of the story is it's a girl trying to figure out who she is and trying to find her way in the world. And, that's exactly what a lot of our students, a lot of our actors are dealing with in their own lives," said Wendland.

The actors range from 8-to-18, and they're ready for you to rediscover this classic tale.

"You will not be disappointed with this show. It's incredible," said Wendland. "The work that these kids do on stage you'd think they've been acting for decades."
