AMHERST – Students at Spring Street Academy are busy rehearsing for their spring production of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland Jr.

Shows will be held Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m. with a matinee on Saturday at 2 p.m.

The performance boasts a cast of 60, a chorus of 29 and ensemble of 22, for a total of 111 students on stage.

Additionally, there are many more working behind the scenes to ensure the show’s success.

The show is under the direction of Ruth Cormier Nichols.

The production is based on the 1951 Disney film Alice in Wonderland and the novels The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll.

The story is about the adventures of a little girl who happens to follow a rabbit down a rabbit hole and ends up in a strange world with very unusual creatures and situations.

In the end, Alice learns to appreciate her own life.

All tickets are $5 and are available at the school office, Deanne Fitzpatrick’s rug-hooking studio on Church Street or at the door before the performances.
