Life-size horse puppets for everyone!

Also known as a giveaway of War Horse tickets 🙂

Broadway Across Canada presents War Horse is coming this summer at the Centennial Concert Hall June 18 – 22nd – you might remember the name from the massive Spielberg movie in 2011 by the same name, but it’s now a Broadway show as well! (a Tony-award winning show, actually!)

 A heart-warming tale of loyalty and friendship, and winner of FIVE 2011 Tony Awards®, WAR HORSE tells the story of young Albert and his beloved horse, Joey. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and around the world.

So…one of the leads is a horse. And, HOW, exactly, do they plan to do a play starring a horse?

At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.

Oh.

Giant, rideable, horse puppets with two people inside of them.  I’m going to need to see that.

If you want to see these for yourselves, I’ve got tickets to give away! If you want in, find the horse’s name and put it in the comments to win! Draw on Friday

 

Disclaimer: It’s called WAR horse, so they recommend for ages 10+.
