Niswonger Performing Arts Center: The Adventures of Tortoise & Hare

November 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Using cutting-edge technology of electroluminescent puppetry, music ranging from classical to jazz to pop, and moving storytelling, a classic children’s fable comes to life on stage! Lightwire Theater returns to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Nov 5 at 11:00 AM to perform The Adventures of Tortoise & Hare.
The story begins with Aesop’s classic fable of The Tortoise and the Hare but continues and finds them ten years down the road, now with children of their own and exploring modern day distractions. Smartphones and video games create a new landscape of lost connections to life experiences. The Next Gen features Tortoise Junior and Lil’ Hare in a whole new kind of race where their adventures lead them into unexpected territory. Old Man Tortoise and Big Daddy Hare must come together despite their differences to find and save their children. What hurdles will they have to overcome to make it to the finish line?

A dazzling and high-tech production, the performance includes sets, costumes, puppets, and props that light up in the dark through the innovative use electroluminescent (EL) wires. As the lights go out and bright, colorful shapes come to life in the dark, characters swirl, float and fly across the stage.
