Moon Mouse: A Space Odyssey

NJPAC

Saturday, March 3, 2 pm

LightWire Theater presents this kid-friendly glow-in-the-dark stage show with cool lights and a classic coming-of-age story. Accompany Marvin on a trip to the moon in his homemade rocket and meet a cast of misfit creatures. Will Marvin make his dreams come true and gain the glory and acceptance he craves?

Marvin wants to be popular. Constantly bullied by the cool rats, he is labeled a loser and a geek. To escape the continuous badgering, Marvin retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy in which he’s the hero.

Show takes place in Victoria Theater. NJPAC has a Student RUSH program for select performances. Visit our Student Rush page for a list of available performances along with the terms and conditions of the program.

$13 - $25
