THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: A NEW COMPUTER FOR BANCROFT

MONTREAL, JUNE 15, 2011Making the King and Queen of Hearts as well as all their loyal subjects proud, proceeds from Bancroft School’s rendition of Alice In Wonderland has allowed parents to purchase a new state-of-the-art computer which will be presented in an assembly at Bancroft School (4563 St. Urbain) in the Plateau on Wednesday, June 15th at 1:00 p.m.

The show, which starred 114 out of Bancroft’s 180 students, played to four packed houses and a total of 850 spectators during the first week of May. Students from Nesbitt School in Rosemount and Our Lady of Pompei School in Montreal North were invited for one matinée showing. Additionally, a dinner theatre was organized and prepared by 40 parent volunteers. Proceeds from that evening paved the way for the new computer.
