Alice In Wonderland
Performed by: Bits N Pieces GIANT Puppet Theatre  at PuppetWorld Playhouse
Google Map: View Google Map

Performance Description:
You'll be grinning like a Cheshire Cat watching Alice and the nine-foot-tall GIANT puppets at the Mad Hatter's zany tea party, the Queen of Heart's' wild game of croquet in the Royal Courtyard, and all of Wonderland staged with projected scenery, inflated sets, and stage wizardry. Alice finds it takes self-discipline to tame Wonderland's madcap residents. Good sense mixed with Nonsense makes a happy life! See the show, tour the puppet workshop, and make a puppet to take home! *There are 70 seats available per performance.

Performance Description:
Based on E.B. White's best-selling children's paperback book of all time, Charlotte's Web tells the story of a pig named Wilbur and his friendship with an extraordinary barn spider named Charlotte. When Wilbur is in danger of a trip to the butcher, Charlotte is determined to save him. She begins her campaign with the "miracle" of her web in which she writes, "Some Pig" to persuade the farmer to let him live. It's the beginning of a victorious plot which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This beautiful, barn yard play about friendship, sacrifice, compassion and bravery will weave its way into your heart and leave you totally enchanted.
