Join the actors of the Lightwire Theater company at the Midwest Theater at 7:30 p.m. this evening for a performance of their glow-in-the-dark show Moon Mouse, A Space Odyssey.
Theater Director Billy Estes says the show, which combines dance, puppetry and traditional theater, uses electro-luminescent wires to create 3D sculptures. Coupled with an inspiring and uplifting story, Estes says it is a unique show that’s sure to be a hit with families.
What Marvin the mouse wants most is to be popular, but the “cool” rats think he’s a geek and call him a loser. To escape from their bullying, Marvin retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy where he’s the hero. Join Marvin as he blasts off in a homemade rocket and lands on the surface of the moon where he meets strange creatures, learns of infinite peril and experiences awesome beauty. Find out if Marvin’s cosmic adventure will ultimately make his dreams of acceptance come true.
Estes says the show is an hour long and is appropriate for all ages. To get a preview of what the puppetry-based neon creatures in the show look like, visit lightwiretheater.com.
