As Broome Senior High School’s arts students begin to showcase their newfound and enhanced skills, a new tech-savvy version of a classic story took to the stage.

Students from Years 7 to 10 came together to perform #Wonderland, a contemporary version of Alice in Wonderland in the first of two major events for the school’s arts department.

Written and directed by teacher Matthew Noble, #Wonderland takes a look at life as seen through the lens of social media and the internet generation. After installing a new app, Alice is led by the White Rabbit to a new place where she meets a caterpillar search engine, a cat that is an image consultant, a group of internet trolls and the Queen of Influencers, all the while trying to make sense of things around her.

Students engaging in music, dance, drama and visual arts came together in a matter of weeks to put the production together, impressing the audience during the two-night run at the school’s performing arts centre.
