Hana’s happy with her lead role in Somersfield production
Young Observer got up close and personal with some of the characters of Alice in Wonderland from Somersfield Academy last week.
Hana Bushara is 13, her hobbies include tennis, football and volleyball. She loves science, humanities and PE at school.
At the moment she isn’t sure what she wishes to be, but for now she is quite happy with the lead role in Alice in Wonderland.
Hana has been at Somersfield Academy for eleven years.
In the past she has taken part in the chorus in two other Somersfield Academy productions and also in a Shakespeare festival.
She told us she has been practicing her lines before bed and in the car going to school. She went on to say how her friends Caroline and Shanyce have helped her with her lines too.
Tomiko Douglas, also 13, loves sports: baseball, basketball, football and badminton told us he was quite confident with his role as Mad Hatter. Tomiko plans to be a doctor when he is older.
He told us that he wishes to train as a nurse first then go back to university to train as a doctor.
“Once I heard it was Alice in Wonderland I knew I was going to be The Mad Hatter,” he said. “It suits my personality.
“I have found learning the lines pretty easy. My parents were also in production so I guess it is in my genes.”
