The Ugly Duckling and The Tortoise & the Hare

Lightwire Theater/Corbian Visual
Arts and Dance

April 30 – May 3

Children's Festival

New Orleans, LA
Recommended for ages 5-8.

Technology, sculpture, dance and theatre converge in Lightwire Theater’s signature electroluminescent puppetry to present two classic stories. Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling” has helped generations understand one of humanity’s universal struggles. Aesop’s fable, “The Tortoise and the Hare,” now more than 2,500 years old, drives home the time-tested adage that slow and steady wins the race. As seen on America’s Got Talent, Lightwire Theater, with its dazzling visuals, poignant choreography and creative use of music ranging from classical to jazz to pop, literally brings these beloved tales into a new and brilliant light.
