Holy Trinity Lutheran School dazzles with Through the Looking Glass | Photos

HORSHAM'S Holy Trinity Lutheran School students have dazzled family and friends with their school musical.

The musical, Through the Looking Glass, is based on Lewis Carroll's book and is a sequel to Alice in Wonderland.

Music teacher Margaret Gork said the story followed Alice's journey through a chessboard world, where she met lots of characters including Humpty Dumpty and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

She said the children performed two shows - a matinee and an evening performance.

"It went really well and we are really proud of them all," she said.

"All their hard work paid off in the end and, as children do, they rose to the occasion."

The students had been rehearsing since the start of the year.

Mrs Gork said 43 students were involved, ranging from years three to seven.

"We started auditions in the second week of term one," she said.

"Once we had allocated parts, we started rehearsals twice a week in term one and three times a week in term two."

Mrs Gork said more than 300 people attended the evening performance.

She said the school had received positive feedback from parents.

"Parents love seeing their children up on stage," she said.

"I think some of them were blown away by the talent."

Through the Looking Glass was the school's second musical, after students performed The Wizard of Oz last year.
