Who are you? What year are you? What are your interests?
My name is Tori, I’m a Junior here at Homestead! I love riding my bike, going out with friends, and watching my favorite movie… Twilight!
What exactly do you do for Alice in Wonderland?
I’m an actor! I play the role of the duchess.
What brought you to join the cast for Alice in Wonderland??
I did some acting classes in the past and once I got into one act I thought it would be really fun to do the fall play. I also have lots of friends that do theater and I thought it would be really fun, which is exactly the case!
Do you have any stories from rehearsals?
It’s really fun when someone fails in rehearsal, whether they slip or just say something funny, its
always nice to have a laugh when being at rehearsal for so long.
Alice in Wonderland is about a fantastical land with many famous characters and Alice who
ventures throughout. How have you connected to the story?
I went and watched the Tim Burton version in theaters and after that, I’ve fallen in love with all of
the movies. The animated, the weird British ones, the ballet, the Tim Burton movies. All of them!
You are using a script that was created at Homestead in 2015, how have you changed it?
What have you added or taken away?
I personally haven’t added anything, but the new beginning and ending were a really good
What’s one thing that is different in this play or rehearsal process than anything else we’ve
done in the Homestead Theatre Department?
One Act rehearsal and the fall play rehearsals are pretty different in my mind. The fall play is a lot more relaxed and laid back, but the One Act Class is more intense and crammed when you don’t stay after school.
