Discovery Series - Ugly Duckling and Tortoise and the Hare
Based on the tale by Hans Christian Anderson and Aesop Fable
CORBiAN and Lightwire Theater
Bigger and paler than the others to hatch in Mother Duck's nest, The Ugly Duckling is treated as an outsider. Knowing only rejection, he goes out into the wild alone on a search for others who will love him for who he is. Anderson's tale teaches students the lesson of accepting others. The second offering is the famous story of the race between the Tortoise and the Hare best known for the moral that "slow and steady wins the race." In this delightfully modern version, the overly confident Hare becomes distracted by texting, video games and the paparazzi!
Praised for its cutting edge blend of electroluminescent puppetry, technology and dance, CORBiAN and Lightwire Theater from Austin, Texas bring these familiar stories to life in a visually dazzling display accompanied by classic and contemporary music. Young students will be mesmerized.
