Beginning in January 2012, The Ugly Duckling and The Tortoise and the Hare will follow in Darwin's footsteps through the use of Corbian's signature electroluminescent puppetry.

Hans Christian Andersen's classic "The Ugly Duckling" has helped generations of children understand one of humanity's universal struggles, LightWire Theater brings this classic story to the modem stage offering hope to us all as we root for the ugly duckling who exemplifies resilience and heroism along the way to becoming a beautiful swan.

Aesop's fable "The Tortoise and the Hare," now more than 2,500 years old, continues to drive home the time-tested adage, "Slow and steady."
