Senior College Production 'Alice in Wonderland' On Stage at the PumpHouse Theatre

Expect an entertaining theatrical evening when booking your seats at this year's Senior College production of 'Alice in Wonderland', a family affair open to the entire community and held over three consecutive nights: 17-19 May at the PumpHouse Theatre, Takapuna.

When asked what makes this production so spectacular, Pinehurst School Drama teacher and Production Director Angela Clayton replies, “The sheer dedication and enthusiasm of the students and their love of creating drama has driven the process of creating Alice’s topsy turvy world!”

More than 40 Senior College students have been working hard since the beginning of Term 1 to bring this fun-filled production to life. “They were very keen to produce a show that had appeal to the whole school and our community,” she says.

A vibrant and lively production that promises to be a real crowd pleaser, ‘Alice in Wonderland’ sees Alice chasing a big white rabbit when she accidently tumbles down a rabbit hole into Wonderland.

She meets all its famous residents: the King of Hearts, Red Queen, White Queen, the Knave of Hearts and his disorderly pack of cards, the Executioner, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Gryphon, Mock Turtle, the Dormouse, the Cook, Mad Hatter and March Hare, the Frog Footman, the Duchess, the Caterpillar, and White Rabbit all the while trying to keep her temper.

Pinehurst’s version of the play was written by Charlotte B. Chorpenning, a playwright, director, founder of the Children’s Theatre Association of America and director of the Children’s Theatre at the Goodman Theatre of Chicago. The Chorpenning Cup was established in her honour and is awarded to an outstanding writer of children’s plays who has achieved national recognition.

The play, Alice in Wonderland, is based on the 1865 novel written by Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar creatures. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre and is great fun to perform.

 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ is suitable for all ages and is open to the public and to all friends and family of Pinehurst School. Tickets can be bought online at or by phoning 489 8360. Tickets are limited.
