Touring youth theatre troupe visits Crestview schools (VIDEO)

Students also learned a bit of the German "Chicken Dance" folk dance, and then learned the "Lobster Quadrille” — essential for a visit with the Queen of Hearts who, when displeased, delighted the audience with her periodic command, "Off with his head."

The show concluded with a lesson in reading: "When you read a story, it's like being in the middle of it, feeling what the characters feel and sharing their adventures," Alice said.

Students said they enjoyed the performance, which Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation sponsored, along with one in Destin.

"I liked it when she was reading the book and fell down the hole," second-grader Cortavion Carter said.
