Destin Welcomes Amazing Act from America’s Got Talent


  • darwin-2One of the most popular acts to ever appear on America’s Got Talent is headed to our area with a special preview tonight at the Destin Commons.
  • Lightwire: The Show is coming for a special guest appearance on behalf of Northwest Florida Ballet, April 5.
  • It’s the ultimate dancing in the dark – the dancers wear special lights and create extravagant scenes on stage.
  • Creators Ian Carney and Corbin Popp met while dancing in Twyla Tharp’s Broadway show Movin’ Out. A shared love of art, theater, and technology led to the collaboration. 
  • They discovered a product called EL wire,  (EL is short for electroluminescent), and Lightwire techno puppetry was born.  They’ve been amazing audiences in the U.S. and Europe ever since. 
  • The star of the show, Kevin the Bird, will appear for a free preview tonight, March 29, in the center court at the Destin Commons, 6:30-8 p.m.
  • The full electroluminescent extravaganza will be performed for one night only at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at the Niceville campus of NWF State College. Young and old alike will marvel at the magic of Lightwire Theater’s newest stage show.  For ticket information, go to www.nfballet.org.darwin-7-artistic-directors
