A showcase of exquisite and rare toys from local collectors. The Victorian Age was one of the most prolific periods of invention and technological development. Most early Victorian-age children played with home-made toys: Rag or peg dolls, hoops, wooden tops, tin or wood whistles, stick horses, or whatever came to hand. By the end of the era, children had access to manufactured toys, many of very high quality. Come revisit the adolescence of an industry and its creations that amused, delighted and educated our parents and grandparents.

This wild adaptation of Lewis Carroll's original Through the Looking Glass highlights the pure fun of the story with a huge helping of unabashed silliness!
A romp through Alice's looking glass land retains all of the familiar characters and introduces dozens of new ones: a baseball team, a gospel group called The Responsibilities, a train conductor, a peanut salesman, detectives, a Miss America pageant, star-struck tourists, plastic light saber wielding knights and more.
