Lightwire Theater brings their dazzling electroluminescent puppetry to Austin for this world premiere production.

The production begins with Aesop’s classic fable of “The Tortoise and the Hare” but continues 10 years down the road, now with children of their own. The Next Gen 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? This glow-in-the-dark adventure is visually amazing and uses Lightwire’s signature blend of puppetry, technology and dance to bring a classic tale into a new brilliant light.
