Pelsall Musical Society to stage Through the Looking Glass

Pelsall Musical Society is staging Through The Looking Glass this week at the Methodist Church Hall.

The society had hoped it would be staging the world premiere of the musical, which is based on Alice In Wonderland, but was beaten by an American school and another UK musical society earlier this year.

Colette Mumford said they began rehearsing for the show in September last year when it was still in the stages of being written. It was finalised just before Christmas.

“At this point we were performing the world premiere” she said. “Unfortunately, a school in America pipped us to the post and then a society in England, which meant we also lost the UK premiere.”

The society has 35 members who will be performing, as well as backstage hands and front of house volunteers.

Through the Looking Glass is being staged at the hall, on Chapel Street, on May 9-12 and curtains are up at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £8 for adults and £6.50 for children and concessions. For tickets, telephone 01922 411498.
