The Edison Theatre Ovations for Young People series presents The Adventures Of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer on Saturday, October 5, at 11 AM and 2 PM. “The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer is the story of the enduring love of a brave explorer with a heart as big as a whale. This highly imaginative fusion of animation, mime, puppetry and projection is a multi-award-winning one-man-show by master storyteller Tim Watts. Unique, moving and thoroughly entertaining, this show's “mix of environmental disaster, twee humor and cutie-pie whimsy makes it something akin to a theatrical Wall-E” according to the New York Times. Winner of the 2011 “Best Theatre Show” at the Auckland Fringe Festival, “Outstanding Solo Show” at the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival and “Best Puppetry” at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2010.” Performances take place at Edison Theater on the Washington University campus.
