Lightwire Theater: The Adventures of Tortoise & Hare

Arts Center Event
The Arts Center at Iowa Western
Saturday, Apr 22, 2023 at 7:00 PM (CT)

Lightwire Theater has been featured as semi-finalists on NBC’s America’s Got Talent and winners of Tru TV’s Fake Off. The performance combines theater and technology to bring stories to life in complete darkness and has been internationally recognized for their signature brand of electroluminescent artistry.

The 60-minute show begins with Aesop’s classic fable, The Tortoise and the Hare, but continues the story 10 years into the future. Now the classic competitors have children of their own who are exploring modern-day distractions. Smartphones and video games create a landscape of lost connections to life experiences. The Next Generation 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 creative use of music from classical to pop, this production brings the classic tale into new brilliant light.
