Marvin the mouse wants to be popular. Constantly bullied and picked on by the “cool” rats, he is labeled as a looser and a geek. As respite from the continuous badgering, Marvin retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy. He longs to have adventures and to be the hero. Join Marvin on the space adventure of a lifetime: a trip to the surface of the moon on his homemade rocket, where he meets a strange cast of misfit creatures, learns of infinite peril and views awesome beauty. Will Marvin make his dreams come true and experience the glory and acceptance he craves? New Orleans’ Lightwire Theater is proud to present Moon Mouse, a cosmic adventure about celebrating differences.
Combining dance, puppetry, and traditional theater, the costumes, props and sets come to life as electro-luminescent wires create dazzling and colorful 3D sculptures. Lightwire Theater has been featured on "America's Got Talent," and it is one of the top touring acts in North America.
Lightwire Theatre’s Moon Mouse will be in the Esplanade Main Theatre Sunday May 28, 2017 at 1 PM. Tickets are $15 (+s/c +gst).
