DLUX Puppets present “Alice in Wonderland” at the Bankhead Theater
February 11, 2018 @ 3:00 pm
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 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’ 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 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 family fun.
