WL High hosts string of 'Wonderland' shows
The West Linn High School Theatre Arts Department finished up its performances of "Wonderland" earlier this January — an adaption of "Alice in Wonderland."
Written, produced and performed by the Theatre for Youths and West Linn High School Tech II class, "Wonderland" explored themes of self-determination, empathy, depression and anxiety, as well as the lost art of simple play in order to negotiate the world around us.
WLHS students also shared the performance with primary school students from Sunset and Cedaroak Park primaries, inspiring the next wave of theater students along the way.
