It was a celebration of Disney classics old and new when the New Buffalo High School Drama Club performed the musical revue, Through the Looking Glass at the New Buffalo Performing Arts Center Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 3, 4 and 5.
Through the eyes of Alice (portrayed by Kira Arvanitis) from Alice in Wonderland fame, audience members were treated to an array of dramatic and musical highlights from various Disney movies, such Cinderella, Aladin, Mulan and Mary Poppins. After nearly falling asleep while sitting and listening to her sister read aloud one afternoon, Alice finds herself following a mysterious White Rabbit (portrayed by Amandine De Simone) down a rabbit hole. From there, she becomes entangled in an adventure featuring a variety of popular Disney characters.
The cast included both New Buffalo Middle School and New Buffalo High School students. It was directed by Jacob
Zapor, who teaches art at the middle and high school. Music
was directed by Christina Baumann, middle/high school band
teacher, and Jennifer Fiero was the choreographer.
