When the lights dim at Palm Beach State College’s Duncan Theatre (561-868-3309) on January 17, it won’t stay dark for long. Young audience members will be met by an influx of electroluminescent puppets as part of Lightwire Theatre’s dual production of The Ugly Duckling and The Tortoise and the Hare.
The presentation is part of the Weekend Family Fun series and will include an array of vibrant visuals, moving sculptures and choreography set to a mixture of classical, jazz and pop music styles. Beyond the aesthetic awe, these beloved fairy tales teach valuable lessons on self-preservation, resilience and diligence.
- Tickets cost $10.
- Showtime: January 17, 11 a.m.
