A Duck, A Tortoise and a Hare: Classic Tales Brought to “Light”


The Fowler Center, located on the campus of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, welcomes the Lightwire Theatre on Feb. 8 and 9 as part of the Family Friendly Concert Series. Lightwire Theatre brings new life to a pair of classic tales: Hans Christian Andersen’s “Thetortoise and the hare Ugly Duckling” and Aesop’s fable, “The Tortoise and the Hare.” Using puppets lined with electroluminescent wire, the well-known characters illuminate the darkened stage and wend their way into audiences’ hearts. Children and adults alike will love Lightwire Theater’s cutting edge blend of puppetry, technology, and dance. Ticket prices range from $6-$10 and discounts are available for groups.
