St Paul's pupils take to the stage for 'Alice'

Some of the principal actors including the Three Cheshire Cats, the Dodo Bird, Mad Hatter, Alice's sister, Mathilde; the Doorknob, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, Caterpillar, White Rabbit, Queen of Hearts and King of Hearts.

The pupils of St Paul's NS have been very busy rehearsing for an upcoming production of 'Alice in Wonderland Jr'.

The girls and boys are re-creating Alice's madcap adventures in Wonderland as she chases the White Rabbit, races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with the Tweedles, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game!

Roles are plentiful, including three Cheshire Cats and dozens of other wonderfully wacky characters.

This fast-paced stage adaptation of 'Alice in Wonderland' features updated dialogue and new arrangements of such classic Disney songs as 'I'm Late', 'The Un-birthday Song' and 'Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah'.

Over 300 children from third to sixth class are involved in some way. The show is being produced by Damien Douglas, in conjunction with teachers Rosi Meegan, Jacinta McEvoy, Rob Kealy, Brid Corrigan and Fiona Carroll.

The show was launched at the school last Thursday following the parents' association AGM. The show itself will take place from Wednesday, 6th to Friday, 8th February in the Solstice Arts Centre, Navan. The final show on Friday is already a sell-out.

'Alice in Wonderland' follows hugely successful productions of 'Seussical the Musical' in 2009, 'Honk!' in 2005 and 'Joseph' in 2001.
