WAHS to crown royalty in 'Wonderland'

If you thought Alice in Wonderland's time in Windom ended with the Prairie Fire Children's Theatre production at BARC last month, think again.

It will resurface Saturday night in the Gold Gym at Windom Area Middle High School for the school's annual fall homecoming coronation.

Admission to coronation is $1 per person and it kicks off a week of homecoming activities Sept. 23-27.

Yes, "Windom Wonderland" is the theme of Saturday evening's homecoming coronation that begins at 7:30 p.m., and the Alice in Wonderland theme plays throughout.

"We're using bright colors, different colored lights and we've got big flowers in the background that are outlined in lights; we're actually using big silk flowers for illumination," explains Student Senate Advisor Mark Nass.

While fall homecoming will be a formal event, it also expects to be a very fun event for the 12 WAHS seniors who were nominated as candidates by their classmates.

Queen candidates are Emily Axford, Chelsey Fast, Kelsey Hanefeld, Rachel Sorensen, Megan Theesfeld and Maitland Vollan.

King candidates are Zach Bartosh, Tanner Diemer, Jacob Gotto, Andrew Larson, Nick Raverty and Bryton Syverson.

Fall homecoming is always an elimination process spearheaded by the freshmen prince and princess, who this year are Austin Jones and Sami Bartelt. They will portray two key characters from Alice in Wonderland, "The Mad Hatter" and "The Queen of Hearts."

"The Mad Hatter will eliminate each of the girls and when they are eliminated, they will each get a big silk, gerber daisy in bright, flourescent colors," Nass explains.

"Then, the Queen of Hearts has big playing cards of the Queen of Hearts and as she goes along and finds the one to be eliminated, she will say her famous statement, 'Off with his head!' and she will hand the candidate that's eliminated a card."

For more on Saturday's coronation and activities planned for Homecoming Week, see the story on the Education page in the Sept. 18 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands today.
