Lightwire Theater Company

Calling all space enthusiasts! Lightwire Theater Company uses glow-in-the dark puppets, electro-luminescent wire, movement, and dance to present a visually stunning theatrical experience that is out of this world. In an imaginative story without words, join Marvin—an outcast mouse who craves acceptance and adventure—on a thrilling space odyssey. With his homemade rocket, Marvin blasts off to the moon where he meets a strange cast of misfit creatures, learns of infinite danger, and views awesome beauty. Lightwire Theater launched into the spotlight after reaching the semi-finalist round on season seven of America’s Got Talent. Since then, they have traveled the world sharing their whimsical brand of storytelling with audiences of-all-ages, cultures, and backgrounds. “An eye-popping display of storytelling that’s like nothing else you’ve ever seen” (

Following the performance, the fun continues as each child receives a glow-in-the-dark-sticker and necklace while exiting the theater as a momento of their Hylton Center experience.
