The Hudson High School Fall Play, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," will be streamed live on Zoom Dec.18 and 19 at 7 p.m.

"​Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland​ "is one of the best-known and most popular works of English-language fiction - its narrative, structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in popular culture and literature, especially in the ​fantasy​ genre. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the ​literary nonsense​ genre. The tale plays with ​logic​, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. Originally written in 1865 by Lewis Carroll, our play tells the story of a high school aged ​Alice​, who travels to a new world called Wonderland; which is populated by peculiar, ​anthropomorphic​ creatures.

This production is an original adaption of Caroll's stories by HHS Drama Director Bob Russell and has been created specifically for virtual performances on Zoom. Act One will follow the story of Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland ​and Act Two will follow ​Through the Looking Glass​.
