Moon Mouse: A Space Odyssey

Artist: Lightwire Theater

A visually spectacular glow-in-the-dark journey that blows away any visual tricks kids get from their screen-based entertainment. Moon Mouse: A Space Odyssey is a unique, one-of-a-kind performance using electroluminescent technology, music, and movement to tell the story.  Marvin the Mouse isn’t getting along with the “cool” rats at school.  To get away from the continuous badgering, he retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy. Join Marvin on his homemade rocket ship and journey to the surface of the moon where he’ll meet a strange cast of misfit creatures and learn of infinite peril and awesome beauty.
