Kalien the Alien is 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!
