stage for the past month to pull the production together, said Burbank
drama teacher Rod Rothacher.
Rothacher said the spring play is a tradition at Burbank High. The
fantastic and magical qualities found in "Alice in Wonderland" made it
ideal for the students, he said.
Senior Theo Borders agreed.
"It's fun playing my character because I can be creative. My character
goes against what people consider to be sane," said Borders, who plays
the Mad Hatter.
Borders, 17, appeared in "Beverly Hills Cop 3" and in television
commercials for McDonald's, but he said he is aiming for a career behind
the camera as a film director.
"This play will definitely reach out to people of all ages. We have a
killer cast that has been working really hard," Borders said.
