Licking Students Transported to Wonderland!! 

Licking High School Drama Club is performing the play "Dorothy in Wonderland" this fall! Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz cast are swept away into Wonderland when a tornado hits Oz. They have adventures in Wonderland and meet Alice, the Mad Hatter and his crew, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, the Cheshire Cat and a whole host of Wonderland characters. To get home again, Dorothy and Alice must defeat the Queen of Hearts with all her cards and the King of Hearts with all his chess pieces, in a rousing game of croquet--with flamingo mallets and hedgehog croquet balls! Come and see the adventure unfold! 

The play has been cast, and rehearsals have started. Over 40 students, along with our student director, Michelle Potts, will be rehearsing every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from now until our production. 

We invite you to come and join the Wonderland adventure Friday, November 21 and Saturday, November 22 at 8:00 p.m. in the Jr. High Gym!
