On Saturday 20 October, 2018, Napier came to life with the Harcourts Hawkes Bay Arts Festival – White Night. We got in on the act and our little rectangle of Napier came to life too! Three of our HaBYT students were the director/designers of our theatre installation piece with Kate, Peter and Juliet on hand to help. 13 young creatives joined us for two days to redesign the space to reflect the whacky world of Alice in Shadowlands. Costumes by Angela Elliott from How Ridiculous Costuming brought the characters to life. As the audience meandered through, they met the Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the caterpillar and a little alice, the Red Queen, the clumsy cards, White Queen, Alice herself and of course the Dormouse and Hare and the Cheshire Cat! what a blast!!! Congratulations to all our young performers, creators, artists, designers and directors.
