Lightwire Theater to Bring DINO LIGHT to Stamford's Palace Theatre, 1/14
Lightwire Theater (based in New Orleans, LA) brings their unique brand of storytelling back to Stamford's Palace Theatre on Tuesday, January 14th at 10 a.m. for a sold out performance of "DINO Light." Coming off a successful run on NBC's America's Got Talent, the company returns to their stage roots, performing in venues across the country. The show is made possible through the generous support of our Arts Education Presenting Sponsors F. D. Rich, Trump Parc Stamford, Purdue Pharma and RFR Realty.
Unique and visually dazzling, Lightwire Theater has been praised for its cutting edge blend of puppetry, technology, and dance by audiences all over the world. "DINO Light," a heart-warming original story, features a friendly dinosaur that wanders away from home and discovers a world of creatures that light up the darkness and help him find the true meaning of love.
"Lightwire Theater is such a delight, for both kids and adults," said Palace Theatre Director of Education, Carol Bryan. "Watching the children completely mesmerized by the story unfolding on the stage, without a single word being spoken, is incredible."
"A sense of wonder and surprise - not on an iPad, but unfolding right in front of you, live!, -- that's what theatre is all about," said Producing Artistic Director, BT McNicholl. "Part of cultivating our next generation of audiences is to show them just how many different opportunities are available to them, and presenting a production that uses an innovative combination of technology, music and movement is an ideal way to do that."
The vision of the Palace Theatre is to be the regional arts center for exciting entertainment that enhances and enriches the cultural, educational, economic, and social life of the community. The Palace strives to achieve this vision by demonstrating integrity in all work and relationships, providing service and quality in all activities, fostering and promoting diversity of thought, ideas and culture, providing stewardship for the Stamford Arts community, emphasizing outreach in our community, and offering creativity in all endeavors. Major funding is provided by the Department of Economic & Community Development and the Office of the Arts. Programs made possible in part by the Fairfield County Community Foundation.
