“The Ugly Duckling” lights up Roswell Cultural Arts Center



ROSWELL, Ga. — The Roswell Cultural Arts Center will host two electrifying performances of Lightwire Theater’s luminescent interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale “The Ugly Duckling.”  On May 6, the internationally acclaimed New Orleans-based troop will perform at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. as part of this year’s Roswell Family Series.

With a blend of dance and puppetry, Lightwire Theater combines technology with art to create performances that appeared on the 2012 season of America’s Got Talent. 

“The Ugly Duckling” will be performed in total darkness, illuminated only by the thin light strips that outline the costumes worn by the performers.

This show is recommended for children ages 4 and up. Due to the darkness of the theater, late seating will not be allowed for these performances. A question and answer session with the artists will follow the 45-minute performance.

Individual tickets are $12 for ages 2 and up and can be purchased at, by calling 770-594-6232, or in-person at the box office. Group rates are also available.
