METAIRIE, La. (WGNO) — Lightwire Theater’s “electroluminescent” production of “The Adventures of the Tortoise and Hare: The Next Gen” is coming to the Jefferson Performance Arts Center on Sunday, Sept. 24.

A representative for Lightwire Theater said “The Adventures of the Tortoise and Hare: The Next Gen” takes place 10 years after the original fable when the tortoise and hare have children.

In a new landscape with smartphones and video games, Tortoise Junior and Lil’ Hare must compete in a new race.

Lightwire representatives said the play will be performed in complete darkness to allow its “puppetry-based neon creatures” to bring the performance to life.
