Lightwire Theater presents "Moon Mouse", a cosmic adventure about celebrating 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, Marvin retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy. He longs to have adventures and be the hero.

Join Marvin on the space adventure of a lifetime: a trip to the surface of the moon on his homemade rocket. There 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?

Ian and Eleanor Carney, co-founders of Lightwire Theater, grew up in New Orleans. Successful dancing careers took them to New York, where Ian met Corbin Popp. Discovering their mutual love of art, theater and technology, Ian and Corbin found "EL wire" (coated electroluminescent wire which glows when an alternating current is applied to it). They began to experiment and developed puppetry-based neon creatures that quickly came to life.

After years of engineering and development, they founded CORBiAN Visual Arts and Dance. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, Ian and Eleanor returned to the city of their youth. Corbin and his wife followed and Lightwire Theater was founded.

Since then, they have become internationally recognized for their signature brand of electroluminescent artistry, poignant storytelling and music scores. Lightwire Theater continues to create and deliver innovative theatrical experiences to audiences worldwide.
The show will be performed at 4:30 PM and 6:15 PM.
