    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Alice in Wonderland

Today, me and my kindergarten lovelies went and saw the play Alice in Wonderland for a field trip at Marshall Middle School.  Now, I have never seen Alice in Wonderland live before (in any place), but I thought that the young people who put this show on did an exceptional job!  They were all young teens (the majority of them 11-14 years old), and they had everything down to a T.  They had their lines remembered dynamically, they were enthusiastic, they could dance, and they all seemed to have so much fun reenacting the scenes and their characters.  Alice was played by an adorable blonde haired 11 year old girl, and she captivated the audience with her fantastic betrayal of “growing big” from eating magical cookies and “shrinking” back down to size to try to fit through the doorways.  Yet, my favorite character was actually the Mad Hatter in this production.  The young man who played him was whimsical and just downright silly, altogether similar to the quirky Johnny Depp.  I absolutely loved it!

If you haven’t had a chance to see this production by the Duluth Playhouse, I highly recommend it.  I don’t believe that it will be having too many more shows, so take advantage of it while you can.  Definitely well worth the time and cost of attendance, and the children who put it on will inspire you to sing along!
