Lightwire Theater Presents Moon Mouse: A Space Odyssey

             New York, NY

When: Saturday, March 19 - TWO SHOWS at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM

Who: All ages

Following up on their blockbuster "Dino-Light" show, Lightwire Theater presents an electro-luminescent adventure tale which celebrates differences. Marvin the mouse wants to be popular. Constantly bullied and picked on by the "cool" rats, he is labeled as a loser and a geek. As respite from the continuous badgering, he retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy. He longs to have adventures and to be the hero. On a trip to the surface of the moon via a homemade rocket, Marvin meets a strange cast of misfit creatures and learns of infinite peril and awesome beauty. Will Marvin make his dreams come true and bring him the glory and acceptance he craves? Only this glowingly epic performance will tell the tale. Preview "Moon Mouse" on YouTube.
