Description: 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 offering hope 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 more than 2,500 years old, continues to drive home the time-tested adage, "Slow and steady wins the race." 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.
