About the event
Come see the Hall of Heroes exhibit at the Martin-Lett Gallery Exhibit at Oxford Performing Arts Center!
The story begins with Aesop’s classic fable of The Tortoise and The Hare where the “slow and steady” Tortoise defeats the nimble but overconfident Hare. Lightwire Theater continues the story which finds the two opponents 10 years down the road, now with children of their own, 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 whole new kind of race, where their adventures lead them into unexpected territory. Old man Tortoise and Big Daddy Hare must come together despite their differences to find and save their children. With dazzling visuals, poignant storytelling, and creative use of music from classical to pop, this production brings this classic tale into a brilliant new light.
