Lake Zurich Middle School South students went through dress rehearsal in elaborate costumes for "Alice in Wonderland" Thursday in preparation for this weekend's performances.
This year's spring production includes 25 cast members, 32 crew members and managers who have been working on the show since early January.
"The kids are working well together," director Kimberly Warren said. "We have two Alices in the play -- that might surprise the audience. It is good opportunity to give two people really big parts."
Warren said the actress playing the role of Alice changes half way through the show. Eighth-grader Morgan Coirier plays the part of Alice in the first half and seventh-grader Blake Rowell plays the role in the second half.
"It's been really fun, and I enjoy doing productions. Being Alice is a lot of work with a lot of lines," Morgan said.
Performances are set for Friday at 7 p.m. and on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the school gym. Tickets will be sold at the door -- $10 for adults and $8 for students/children.
