The Louisiana School for the Deaf Drama Club presented its spring play Thursday, April 7, in the school auditorium. This year's production, Alice in Wonderland, was presented at 1:00 pm for students and then again at 6:30 pm for parents and visitors.
Under the supervision of club sponsor Ms. Lisa Cook, members worked diligently in preparing for this event. All 47 club members were involved with the production, either on stage or behind the scenes. They have had "working lunches" and have met after school to rehearse lines, make sets and props, and work on lighting and sound.
All the hard work paid off when the music began and the curtains opened for the afternoon performance. Students and staff were mesmerized for 90 minutes as Alice and a cast of very colorful characters entertained all with music, dance and humorous lines. The elaborate costumes and beautiful sets also helped to create a delightful ambiance. This same mood was felt again by parents and other visitors during the evening performance.
The LSD Drama Department would like to graciously thank the Very Special Arts for their support for the arts. This production was made possible in part through funding provided by the National Office of VSA, under an award from the U.S. Department of Education.
