 Theatre Performance

Tickets: $20 Adult & $10 Student/Youth

The creators of Darwin the Dinosaur  and the folks at Lightwire Theater (in conjunction with Corbian Visual Arts and Dance) bring their use of cutting-edge technology, moving sculpture, and dance to a theatrical experience.

Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling has helped generations of children understand one of humanity’s universal struggles. Lightwire Theater brings this classic story to the modern stage for the ugly duckling, who exemplifies resilience and heroism along the way to becoming a beautiful swan. Aesop’s fable, The Tortoise and the Hare, now more than 2,500 years old, continues to drive home the time-tested adage, “Slow and steady wins the race.”
