Macey Guldager performs as the title character in Portside Academy of Performing Arts' presentation of Alice in Wonderland at Sunset Elementary School Friday

Down the rabbit hole…

Portside Academy of Performing Arts debuted its Alice in Wonderland dance show at Sunset Elementary.

PORT McNEILL—Alice and the White Rabbit led a large audience into a wonderland of music, colour and movement last weekend as Portside Academy of Performing Arts debuted its Alice in Wonderland dance show at Sunset Elementary.

Having presented the traditional holiday ballet The Nutcracker each of the preceding six years, Portside director and choreographer Alana Collins decided to shake things up with a new show this season.

“This is the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, so we thought it would be fitting to put this on instead of another Nutcracker,” she said.

And it worked. A crowd of about 250 on opening night Friday cheered the young North Island dancers for their portrayal of the familiar characters.
