Running time: approx. 50 minutes, with no intermission
This performance is recommended for young audiences (PreK-3), and those young at heart.

“A masterful creation of larger-than-life puppets and state-of the-art scenery had our audiences engaged, and brought to life this classic story for a new generation. Great feedback from teachers and parents alike. Derek and Lauren were great to work with, and our Tech staff were very appreciative of their professionalism. We will definitely have them back!”

“PRE-K – 3 TEACHERS: MUST SEE show for your class. Derek Lux and his wife Lauren Lux, playing Alice, did an INCREDIBLE JOB! With amazing puppets, excellent acting, and a modern snazzy twist to the Alice in Wonderland story, these two put on a wonderful show! And it comes with an activity kit to reinforce team building and life skills. I can’t wait to bring my class next year!”

“My students and parent chaperones all loved the show. It was creative and so much fun to watch – – even my more active kindergarteners were engaged from beginning to end. This is a must see!

“The advice Alice received from the characters in Wonderland is still a point of reference in our classroom for positive self-talk and how to compliment others in a sincere manner. Children in poverty and in the process of learning English were given a great gift by attending this field trip and having their world become bigger and more beautiful. Thank you!”
