Ruby Bridges color

In 1960, 6 year old Ruby Bridges became a face of the nation’s school integration system. Made famous by the painting by Norman Rockwell, Ruby became a young hero of consciousness. This original premiere is the third in Youtheatre’s trilogy about children who’ve fought to make a difference.

“Alice in Wonderland”

Friday, May 13 | 9:30 & 11:30 AM


Alice in Wonderland color

Down she goes into the rabbit hole! The favorite tale by Lewis Carroll comes alive on stage with all of the charm, wit, and comedic characters! Long considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre!


The Fort Wayne Youtheatre strives to produce fun and exciting shows with great educational value. It is part of our mission to incorporate literature-based reading into our main-stage productions. Our shows are chosen from recommended lists of children’s classics and naturally connect with elementary/ middle school state standards for Language Arts in Indiana. Exposure to the theatre arts assists in the cultural development of young people, and attending a live performance is a novel and exciting way to educate your students!

Study guides and fun curricular activities will be emailed to teachers prior to the performance, making it easy to incorporate the show and themes into their curriculum.
