Go inside River City High school’s vibrant and clever crack of the play Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Low staffed and high expectations. River City’s drama class takes on and overcomes the challenge

One of the corridors the students will be using to move in and out of the stage along with the costume of Humpty Dumpty played by senior Rahitesh Prasad.

River City high school’s drama class does not dwindle under the limelight but instead shines brighter than before. With less than 20 kids in the class, students have to take on multiple roles in the upcoming production of Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland.  

Oscar Flores, a junior, takes on two roles as the Mad Hatter as well as the MockTurtle. Two distinct characters. We asked him how hard it is to portray the Mad Hatter and he stated, “It was challenge. I had to think how I can be unpredictable while staying true to the character through my interactions and expressions.”

This is a common hardship that the budding actors are overcoming. Sariah Prasadi, a sophomore, plays both the Red Queen as well as the total opposite, Alice. The hardships she faces are sometimes challenging stating, “Each and every day my personality changes. From being the Red Queen and acting like royalty and stiff like a chess piece to playing Alice sweet and timid.”

The drama class in River City are accomplishing a feat that few would think would be possible. Directed by one man, Chris Hanks, along with high expectations it’s amazing to see that they would not succumb to the challenge. While some would say when life gives you lemons make lemonade River City’s Drama Class blows raspberries at that notion and builds a lemon farm. However, don’t take my word for it watch it March 23-25 at 7pm as well at 3pm on March 25th in RCHS Black Box Theater. Students $4, parents $5 and kids 12 and under $3. See you there!
