The Adventures of Tortoise & Hare – The Next Gen

Friday, October 20 @ 6:30pm

We begin with Aesop’s classic fable of The Tortoise and the Hare but continue the story which finds them 10 years down the road, now with children of their own and exploring modern day distractions. Smart phones & video games create a new landscape of loss connections to life experiences. The Next Gen features Tortoise Junior & Lil’ Hare in a while new kind of race; where their adventures lead them into unexpected territory. Old Man Tortoise and Big Daddy Hare must come together despite their difference to find and save their children. What hurdles will they have to overcome to make it to the finish line? 

With dazzling visuals, poignant storytelling, and the creative use of music from classical to pop, this production brings this tale into a new brilliant light.

Lightwire Theater has been featured as semi-finalists on NBC’s America’s Got Talent and winners of Tru TV’s Fake Off.
