The University of Pikeville School of Dance is preparing a ballet production of “Alice in Wonderland” to be performed in November 2012.
There will be a planning meeting on Saturday, July 7, at 2 p.m. in Booth Auditorium. All dancers, boys and girls, ages seven through adult, who are enrolled in a ballet class are eligible to be cast in the production.
There are roles for girls and women on pointe shoes, roles for boys and men, and roles for all ballet dancers age seven and up who are not on pointe shoes.
Additionally, artisans and seamstresses are needed to create props, such as a giant teapot for the Mad Hatter scene, and many other costumes. The production will adhere as closely as possible to the costumes and characters in the original book.
Rehearsals will begin in August. During the fall semester, rehearsals will be held on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
