WAR HORSE | June 18 - 22, 2014
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. When Joey is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France, he is soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, 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. 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.
WICKED | August 20 - 30, 2014
Back by "popular" demand. Variety calls WICKED "a cultural phenomenon," and when it last played Winnipeg in 2011, it broke box office records. Winner of over 50 major award, including a Grammy® and three Tony Awards®, WICKED is "Broadway's biggest blockbuster" (The New York Times).
Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete - and completely satisfying - musical in a long time." (USA Today).
