Running time: approx. 50 minutes, with no intermission

“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, Second 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!”
-Second Grade Teachers, Cambridge Elementary
