If you’d like to take your littles, we’re giving away a family four-pack to see the show + a gift card so your crew can enjoy U.S. Pizza Co.!
ABOUT THE SHOW: With the use of electroluminescent puppetry, two incandescent story-time adventures will be brought to life right before your eyes.
Lightwire Theater presents two cherished fables in a new and brilliant light. Full-bodied electroluminescent puppetry visually dazzles like moving sculpture in this glowing theatrical experience.
In an age where television, computers and video games reign, Lightwire delivers classic tales in a visually remarkable way with an engaging musical score ranging from classical to jazz to pop.
Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale The Ugly Duckling has helped generations of children understand one of humanity’s universal struggles, finding acceptance and inclusion without changing who you really are on the inside.
Lightwire Theater brings this story to the modern stage offering hope to us all as we root 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 over 2,500 years old, continues to drive home the time-tested adage, “Slow and steady wins the race.” This age old story comes with a modern twist for the kids of today, as the Hare allows himself to be distracted by texting and video games while the Tortoise wins the race due to his discipline and fortitude.
Recommended for ages 5 and up!
ABOUT THE FOOD:We love U.S. Pizza. They are a tradition in Fayetteville and we love that they’re right on Dickson Street, so you can walk straight there from Walton Arts Center. The pizza, salads, sandwiches and more have a unique flavor that’s not duplicated in NWA.
