LUFKIN, TX. Tickets are now on sale at the Temple Theater box office for The Ugly Duckling & The Tortoise and the Hare by Lightwire Theater. You mayhave seen them recently as semi-finalists on America’s Got Talent—missing the finals on Thursday night by one elimination. In 2010 they electrified the Temple Theater stage with A Glow-In-The-Dark Dinosaur Adventure in front of a packed house. Now Angelina Arts Alliance is excited to bring this talented group back with two classic children’s tales told in a bright new way.
This is the first of two shows from the Family Matinee Series and recommended for kids age 4-9. But, if you’ve seen Lightwire Theater before, you know that it’s a treat for the entire family! This performance brings new life to a pair of classic tales, Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Ugly Duckling” and Aesop’s fable, “The Tortoise and The Hare.” Lined with electroluminescent wire, these well-known characters illuminate the darkened stage and make their way into audiences’ hearts. The ancient art of full-body puppetry gets a magical, luminous update by this imaginative inspired troupe. Children will love the clear, fast-paced stories, each with a positive message and kid-friendly humor.
Tickets for the October 6th performance of The Ugly Duckling & The Tortoise and the Hare are $5 for kids and $10 for grown-ups. All seating is general admission. Angelina Arts Alliance is proud to present the 2012-2013 Family Matinee Series, sponsored by Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy and Jordan Family Dentistry. Season Sponsors are Memorial Health System of East Texas and Brookshire Brothers Food & Pharmacy.
