For Immediate Release
Local School Opens Spring Play to Community
Hinckley-Finlayson Public School District ISD 2165 will be hosting the first ever spring community play! Original script “Wendy of Neverland” written and directed by local director Emily Randa.
In the years since Hook’s defeat Wendy Darling has returned to Neverland many times. Each year (or the years Peter remembered) he came back to whisk her away for a visit. Although Wendy longed to talk about the “old days” with Peter names like Hook and even Tinkerbell meant nothing to him. Their shared adventures had been entirely forgotten. So when the day came that Peter looked into her face and could not deny that Wendy had gone and grown up he taught her daughter how to fly.
Wendy has gone after them. And with the help of a few other friends she’s determined to make herself the new Captain of Neverland and prove that the years have only made her craftier and more cunning then a little boy could ever be.
This production will include dance and choreography. It will run 60-90 minutes. Planned cast size between 20-40.

Come and see the production of the Hinckley Community Theater for an exciting new presentation of Alice! This year has an all star cast drawn from the community that spans all ages! Follow the young New York girl named Alice through the looking glass, as she discovers a strange new world filled with magic and wonder, 150 years after the "Alice of Legend" changed things forever...
She'll meet strange new characters in her visit to Wonderland. Such as: "Hatter," the two timing, smooth talking, con man who can't decide who to support. The "White Knight," a strange paladin from the old war with a connection to the supernatural. "Mad March," the bizarre and rabbit-headed hit man bent on finding the secrets Alice holds. Will she be able to bring down the entire house of cards in time? This is the first time for a community-wide theatre production in Hinckley. In 1999, Corrilla Clark started directing the Children’s Theatre for Summer Recreation at the Ostrand Fine Arts Center. Clark’s current cast, which ranges in age from 6 year-olds to adults, includes two of her original cast members from the performance sixteen years ago.
A cast of fifty will be on stage at the Ostrand Fine Arts Center for the Hinckley Summer Community Theatre Initiative production of “Alice-in Wonderland”. The Nick Willing’s rendition adapted for stage by Joanna Hedrick will be performed at 7:00 pm on Thursday, August 20th; Friday, August 21st; and Saturday, August 22nd. A matinee will be on Sunday, August 23rd at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students.
