“Alice in Wonderland” — TWO PERFORMANCES!
With remarkable puppetry and clever digital scenery, the classic tale of Alice’s journey through the marvelous world of the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts becomes a fun musical adaptation for all ages.
In this visually engaging production by the nationally-recognized DLUX Puppet Company, all of the characters who encounter Alice are intricately engineered life-size puppets, hand-built and voiced by founder Derek Lux. Derek is a multi-talented performer who originally began building the puppets while he was still starring in “Beach Blanket Babylon” in San Francisco. His wife, second grade teacher Lauren Lux, is DLUX’ education director and has developed a performance activity kit for students who attend the show. “Alice in Wonderland” returns to the Bankhead Theater by popular demand after a sold out show last February.
While the production is designed to also 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 genuine family fun.
Note: “Alice in Wonderland” will be presented twice, at 11am and 2pm on Sunday, December 30. The performance at 11am is designated Sensory-Friendly for children and families with Autism, special needs, and/or sensory sensitivities. The performance is equally engaging and entertaining, however the house lights will not be completely turned off and there will be no strobe lighting or sudden/surprising sounds, just a welcoming environment for all families!
