The Boyden-Hull Summer Theatre Troupe will present “Dorothy in Wonderland” two times during Summerfest. Performances will be in the school theatre Friday, July 13 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, July 14 at 3 p.m.

The Summer Theatre Troupe is in its ninth season and consists of Boyden-Hull students in fourth through 12th grades. Parents and volunteers also assist with various roles throughout the production.

Approximately 44 students are involved as cast and crew members. Twenty of them have taken part in previous productions. This production includes 24 new members. The main characters play one part. All others play up to three parts. Everyone helps with moving scenery on stage, etc.

Brianna Darling directs the presentation while Laura Evertse handles the music, and Julie Anderson does wardrobe. Audrey Kreun and Elise Visscher are in charge of choreography, lights, sound, etc. Melissa Hinderks is the stage manager and Marj Wagner is the theatre manager.

“The parents have been essential in getting the set done and doing the upcoming concessions and cast meal.  We have appreciated treats from some of the moms. None of this can be accomplished without them,” Wagner said.

Expect to have your heart warmed by this tale of “Dorothy in Wonderland,” which includes lots of singing and dancing. In this musical, Dorothy, Toto and the characters of Oz get caught in another whirlwind that sweeps them off to Wonderland. There they meet Alice, White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, March Hare, Cheshire Cat and other characters. And of you thought the Wicked Witch of the West was bad, now they face a dangerous new foe — the Queen of Hearts. At least Dorothy’s companions now have their brains, heart and courage. Dorothy, Alice and their friends join forces in defeating the queen at croquet, but will that be enough to return Wonderland to normal and get everybody back home?

The Boyden-Hull Education Foundation sponsors the performance. The kids have a great time working on the production and presenting it to the public.

Tickets will be available at the door or can be reserved by phone, 712-439-1103, and leaving a message or email marj@mtcnet.net.
