Marvin the mouse wants to be popular. Constantly bullied and picked on by the
“cool” mice, he is labeled as a loser and a geek. To get away from the continuous badgering, he retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy. He longs to have adventures, 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 awesome beauty. Will Marvin make his dreams come true and bring him the glory and acceptance he craves? This is a cosmic adventure about celebrating differences. Lightwire Theatre creates full body puppets using a product called electroluminescent wire. They bring the full body creature costumes to life through movement and dance. A Q&A will follow the performance to describe how the body puppets were created. Appropriate for Grades K-5th.
*One complimentary Teacher ticket is offered for every 25 student tickets purchased.
