Recommended for Students in Kindergarten - Grade 5
Two students - Dodgson and Steve - band together after being bullied by classmates. To avoid their tormentors, the students follow a secret map and escape to the Tulgey Wood - where they meet a king who begs them to save his people from the fearsome Jabberwocky! Meet colorful characters like Cheshire Cat, JubJub Bird, Bandersnatch, and a family of Momeraths as this unlikely but dynamic duo journeys to save a kingdom. Along the way, they find the courage to defeat the Jabberwocky...and apply the lessons learned to face their fears back home.
This exciting production, prepared to perform in a variety of spaces, is performed by a company of five professionals, runs approximately 50 minutes (one class period). The performance is fully staged with sets, costumes, music and puppets! A post-show Question and Answer session with the actors may be held, at no additional cost, after each performance. A comprehensive educator studyguide, including historical context, synopsis, classroom activities, and additional resources, will be available online in advance of our visit.
