Wonderland

StageFlight students held their annual performance at Pambula Town Hall on 20 September 2016 with a student-devised production of Wonderland.

Based loosely on scenes from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”, the students reworked some of the characters, devised new dialogue, deleted Alice, added an extra Mad Hatter and an obsessed Teapot, and used puppetry, poi dancing a dash of hip hop to create their own magical world.

Video backdrops, music and some clever shadow work added to the scenes, which included the Cheshire Cat, the Queen’s Croquet Match and a March Hare’s Tea Party.

Afterwards, StageFlight hosted a real life tea party to celebrate the students’ achievements with family and friends.

The students, aged from 8 to 16 years from all over the Bega Valley, attend after-school drama classes at Pambula Town Hall with Director Lis Shelley.

This year the students enjoyed workshops with guest tutors, including puppeteer and poi dancer Ruth Pieloor from Canberra, hip-hop teacher Cayce Hill from Tathra and theatrical costume designer Robyn Whitby from Bus Stop Costumes in Pambula, and it was great to see it all come together so well.
