“America’s Got Talent” Favorites Light up the Stage on Black Friday

 

FREDERICK, Md., Wednesday, November 8, 2017 — Amidst the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping, “America’s Got Talent” semi-finalists Lightwire Theater will celebrate the season at the Weinberg Center for the Arts on Friday, November 24 at 2:00pm. “A Very Electric Christmas,” the next event in the Weinberg’s 2017-2018 Family Series, combines magical storytelling, dancing, and electrifying spectacle in an event fit for all ages. Free children’s books will be distributed before and after the show courtesy of Wonder Book and Video.

Tickets begin at $15 and may be purchased online at WeinbergCenter.org, by calling the Box Office at 301.600.2828, or in person at 20 West Patrick St. Discounts are available for students, children, military, and seniors.

Since appearing as semi-finalists on “America’s Got Talent” and winning the top honors on TRU TV’s “Fake Off,” Lightwire Theater has enthralled audiences worldwide with their unique combination of skill and grace as told through the technological innovations of moving light characters. Ian and Eleanor Carney were both born and raised in New Orleans, where they met in ballet class. Their successful dancing careers took them to New York, and it was on Broadway when Ian met co-creator Corbin Popp, while dancing in Twyla Tharp’s “Movin’ Out.” Together with their wives Eleanor and Whitney, they began to experiment with shapes and designs to develop puppetry-based neon creatures that quickly came to life. Now based in New Orleans, Lightwire Theater continues to create and deliver innovative theatrical experiences to audiences worldwide, including Hong Kong, Estonia, Canada, Belarus, China, Abu Dhabi, and Paris, where they were finalists on My TF1’s “The Best Le Meilleur Artiste.”

The Weinberg Center for the Arts Family Series is sponsored by the Frederick Keys. A complete listing of artists and performers scheduled for the 2017-2018 season can be found at WeinbergCenter.org.
