Alienis the story of a young accidental visitor from another
planet to Earth. Seeking help at the local elementary school, Kalien
interacts, sometimes comically, with their Earthling contemporaries.
Throughout one magical day, our alien learns—and teaches—about
anti-bullying, kindness, and fun! Social-emotional development and
poignant understanding of equity, diversity, accessibility, and
inclusion come to life for Pushcart's young learners.
Based on the song of
the same title by children’s pop music icon, mr. RAY (Ray
Andersen), the production supports pathways to learning in music
appreciation and science as well!
