Year eight students at Hugh Sexey Middle School performed Alice In Wonderland for pupils and parents.


It was a fantastic evening for students at a Somerset school when they wowed an audience with their production of the Disney classic Alice In Wonderland.

The curtain was raised on Hugh Sexey Middle School, in Blackford’s Sexeys Road, as students put together a show filled with cards, sea-creatures and some proud flowers.

Pupils and parents were entertained by the curious adventures of Alice as she discovered a whole new world having fallen down a rabbit hole.

The children put on a fantastic show taking on the roles of the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and the Mad Hatter.

Pupils showed off their creativity, artwork and technical skills during the show.

The youngsters, who are all in year eight, made the props during a lunchtime club, designed the backdrop projections at digital club and organised the lighting and costumes for the show.

Year eight teacher Miss Kendall said: “The school is very proud of what the children achieved during the show.

“We hope it is an experience they will all remember when they move on to Kings of Wessex later this year.”
