Alice in Wonderland 2017
The Irlam and Cadishead College Production of Alice in Wonderland was a local ‘Tea Party’ to remember. Year 5 & Year 6 students from local primary schools were invited to attend a special ‘Matinee Performance’ by the Royal Queen of Hearts. It was wonderful to see more than 450 primary school children enthusiastically watching the performances that were delivered over two afternoons. The show included songs from the famous Disney Musical version, such as “I’m late” and “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah.”
The three evening shows were performed in front of sell out audiences. Some parents even attended the production three times to watch their child perform. ICC staff was on hand to lend their support. The cast and directors would like to express their thanks.
