Alice in Wonderland
“A fun musical adaptation with actors, high-quality puppetry and digitally projected scenery the whole family will enjoy!”
With remarkable puppetry and clever digital scenery (Live Virtual Set™ by Steve Axtell), the classic tale of Alice’s journey through the marvelous world of the the Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, Caterpillar, Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum and the Queen of Hearts becomes a fun musical adaptation for the whole family.
In this visually engaging production, all of the characters who encounter Alice are intricately engineered life size puppets, hand built and voiced by DLUX Puppet’s founder Derek Lux. Derek is a multi-talented performer who stars in “Beach Blanket Babylon” in San Francisco at night while building puppets during the day. His wife, second grade teacher Lauren Lux, is DLUX Puppets’ education director and has developed a performance activity kit for students who attend the show. “Alice in Wonderland” made its debut in May 2017 in Walnut Creek.
While the production is designed to teach children how to use the power of their words, thoughts and feelings in a positive way, above all else, DLUX Puppet’s “Alice in Wonderland” is a feast for the eyes and an afternoon of family fun.
Running time: approx. 50 minutes, with no intermission

“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!”
–Robert Vogt Firehouse Arts Center, General Manager
“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!”
-Kim Wampler 3rd Grade Teacher Walnut Heights Elementary
“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!
–Jane Erdiakoff Kindergarten Teacher Walnut Acres Elementary
“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!”
