Prince Rupert has always been home to some of the most interesting acts and performances, and the show this Thursday is no exception.

Darwin the Dinosaur, a show that features electroluminescent wire puppets, will be making its way to the  Lester Centre this week.

“Darwin the Dinosaur is a truly unique theatre experience” said Crystal Lorette, the General Manager of the Lester Centre.

“It features larger than life glow in the dark characters that light up the entire stage”.The characters featured in Darwin the Dinosaur are created out of electroluminescent wire, a special type of wire that allows light to glow from within.  The wiring is also unique in the fact that it provides 360-degrees of unbroken light.

Electroluminescent wire is also known for its flexibility and thin diameter, which makes it the perfect material to use for the characters in Darwin the Dinosaur.

In order show to take place, a completely dark theatre is required.  The audience will be enveloped in darkness while the only thing visible will be the glowing wire puppets. However, the required level of darkness for the performance makes entrance for any late attendees that much more difficult, so arriving `fashionably late’ is not advised.

The show is scheduled to take place beginning at seven p.m. on Thursday, March 3 and tickets are currently being sold at Cooks Jewellers and at the Lester Centre.
