ZLOCK PAC to Present Lightwire Theater's THE ADVENTURES OF TORTOISE AND HARE: THE NEXT GENERATION

The production will run for one performance only on Sunday, February 5th.

The ZLOCK Performing Arts Center (Zlock PAC) will welcome back the return of New Orleans based Lightwire Theater to light-up the imaginations of children and their families, this time with "The Adventures of Tortoise and Hare: The Next Generation" for one performance only on Sunday, February 5th at 3:30 pm. All tickets are $20.00 with free parking. More information can be found at: www.bucks.edu/tickets

Lightwire's remarkable production of The Adventures of Tortoise and Hare: The Next Generation will delight audiences of all ages through unique artistry that skillfully weaves together illuminating and dazzling visuals and poignant story-telling with a creative mix of music that spans from classical to pop. This production inventively brings the age-old tale of the Tortoise and the Hare into a brilliant, new light.

"We've been eager to bring Lightwire back to our stage. When we presented "DINO-LIGHT" in 2019 (a Jim Henson Foundation Grant recipient), it was no surprise that the show was a tremendous hit with our audiences. Families love the imaginative story-telling mixed with a spectacular glow-in-the-dark puppetry and adventure." - stated Zlock PAC's Director Peter Chiovarou.

About The Adventures of Tortoise and Hare

The Next Generation: The story begins with Aesop's classic fable of the Tortoise and the Hare, but as we continue, we find them ten years down the road, now with children of their own and exploring modern-day distractions. Smartphones and video games create a new landscape of lost connections to life experiences. The Next Gen features Tortoise Junior and Lil' Hare in a new race, where their adventures lead them into unexpected territory. Old man Tortoise and Big Daddy Hare must come together to find and save their children despite their differences. What hurdles will they have to overcome to make it to the finish line?
