The hugely popular Lightwire Theater makes a return visit to Adams-Friendship with an all-new show! We begin with Aesop’s classic fable of the The Tortoise and the Hare but continue the story, which finds them 10 years down the road, now with children of their own and exploring modern day distractions.
Smart phones 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?
With dazzling visuals, poignant storytelling and the creative use of music from classical to pop, this production brings this tale into a new brilliant light. The Lightwire group combines theater, dance, and technology to bring stories to life in complete darkness and is internationally recognized for their signature brand of electroluminescent artistry.
"An eye-popping display os storytelling that's like nothing else you've ever seen."
"Their captivating combination of dance, puppetry, and lighting earned Lightwire a standing ovation."
