CTS Field Trip: MOON MOUSE: A Space Odyssey

CTS Field Trip: MOON MOUSE: A Space Odyssey

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. 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 strang e cast of  misfit creatures, learns of infinite peril and awesome beauty. Will Marvin make his dreams come true and find the glory and acceptance he craves? 

Lightwire Theater (The Ugly Duckling and The Tortoise & The Hare) is proud to present this cosmic adventure about celebrating differences!
