The timeless stories of Hans Christian Andersen and Aesop literally light up the stage in this mesmerizing and visually inventive performance of The Ugly Duckling
and The Tortoise and the Hare
, which features puppetry, narration, dance and music in a variety of styles. Lightwire Theater brings these beloved stories to life through the high-tech wizardry of electroluminescent wire, creating a world of brilliant light and shadow in which characters glow, float, fly, appear and disappear as if by magic. In The Ugly Duckling
, children learn about personal transformation and acceptance through the timeless story of a young bird searching for friends who will love him despite his outward appearance. And in Aesop's enduring fable The Tortoise and the Hare
, children and parents alike are reminded that "slow and steady wins the race."
