The Mad Hatter of Bourke (1968)

In Bourke I ‘produced’ my version of “Alice in Wonderland”, using a few unrelated Walt Disney songs to enhance the show.

I had been determined to emulate all the things that my primary school teacher, in Gouda had done.

In his production of De Wonderbloem (The magic flower), I had had a minor role. I think I was ‘leader’ of the little folk or something.

It was nice to make contact with the (then) girl who had had a major singing role, via She was the daughter of a local minister and was involved with the teaching of music, at a tertiary level, in Rotterdam.
