A rabbit who’s late, a disappearing cat and The Mad Hatter await Alice in Netherwood Knoll Elementary’s fourth grade production of “Alice the Musical.”

The show, a version of Lewis Carroll’s novel “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 26, at the Oregon High School Performing Arts Center, 456 N. Perry Pkwy.

The story follows character Alice (Maisey Shaw) as she stumbles upon a strange world where size is relative and animals speak. A journey ensues and along the way, she crosses paths with peculiar characters including the White Rabbit (Sera Lisowski), the Caterpillar (Brady Bartlett), Mad Hatter (Maya Engwall), Cheshire Cat (Autumn Olmsted) and the Queen (Laila Miles).

“We have a really talented cast of dedicated fourth-graders that have worked really, really hard,” NKE music teacher Amanda Reichhold told the Observer, who is co-director of the play.

She added that the musical will be “fun for the whole family.”

Reichold also said that she couldn’t have done the play without the help of Megan Wiemann, a music teacher from Rome Corners Intermediate School, who volunteered to help as co-director.

Admission is free. For more information, call Amanda Reichhold at 835-4119 or email aereichhold@oregonsd.net.
