This weekend, 36 actors and actresses took the stage at Jefferson Davis Community College as the Brewton Community Theatre presented “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.”
Along with those portraying characters in the play, there were countless others behind the scenes making sure props, scenery, lighting and music were prepared and cued properly.
The Friday evening show went off without a recognizable hitch as a large crowd gathered to watch the performers hone their craft of acting.
Although the audience responded with applause and laughter, the actors and actresses seemed to be enjoying the performance as much, if not more, than those in the crowd.
To watch a group of performers, most of which were under the age of 21, was indeed a pleasure.
Our hats are off to those who worked so hard to put the performance together for the community to enjoy.
Teresa Gleaton, who serves as director for the productions of the group, addressed the crowd at the end of the presentation.
Her pride in the performance of the actors and actresses, young and old, was obvious.
The group presented the program on Thursday night for honored guests with public performances on Friday and Saturday night.
A final performance of “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland” will be presented today at 2 p.m. in the Woodfin Patterson Auditorium on the campus of Jefferson Davis Community College.
We encourage anyone who can to take advantage of this final performance as the infant troupe presents art at its finest.
