Photo-Coverage-First-Look-at-WAR-HORSE-Canadian-Cast-20000101

The all Canadian cast of War Horse started previews in Toronto last week, and the city has fallen head over hoof for the show about a young boy who's horse is sold to the cavalry during WWI.  Productions of War Horse are currently running on the West End and on Broadway, and the show has won numerous awards (including an Olivier and a Tony). Steven Spielberg adapted the story for feature film this past Christmas, and now Toronto proudly becomes the third city to have its own sit-down production of the show. The official opening night is February 28th, 2012, but BWW is thrilled to bring its readers this first look at the all Canadian Cast of War Horse.

The Canadian cast is led by Alex Furber in the starring role of Albert, the young boy who sees his beloved horse Joey sold to the cavalry and shipped off to France.  Brad Rudy and Tamara Bernier-Evans play Ted and Rose Narracott, Albert's parents.  Richard McMillan plays Albert's uncle Arthur and Steven Yaffee plays Arthur's son Billy.  Patrick Galligan plays German soldier Friedrich Muller, Juno Award-winning singer/songwriter Melanie Doane plays Song Person #1 and Tatjana Cornij plays Song Person #2.

The horses, Joey and Topthorn are both major characters in the show, and each require three operators. Joey, as a foal is played by Mairi Babb, Patrick Kwok-Choon, and Rahnuma Panthaky. Joey and Topthorn, as adults, are played by: Christy Adamson, Brad Cook, Adam Cunningham, Caden Douglas, James Retter Duncan, Troy Feldman, Bryan Hindle, Grant Landry, Ryan Reid, Sean Robertson, Brendan Rowland and Dayna Tietzen.

The ensemble includes: Neil Foster, Bruce Godfree, Addison Holley, Ryan Hollyman, Cara Hunter, David Hurwitz, Araya Mengesha, Brendan Murray, Brian Paul, Geoffrey Pounsett, Dylan Roberts, and Brendan Wall.

Kelly Cameron Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and is honoured to be representing the Toronto contingent of BroadwayWorld as Senior Editor overseeing the GTA region.

Her writing career started almost by accident, though it has always been in her blood as her Mom was an English teacher who firmly believed in the importance of being able to turn a phrase. She also loved sharing her love of theatre with her students (and her children), and was a staunch supporter of the arts in Toronto.

When not at the theatre, you can usually find Kelly with a Starbucks in one hand and her BlackBerry in the other, tweeting, reading or doing something quirky and clumsy for the sake of getting that next big story.

She's incredibly grateful to the amazing Toronto theatre community who have embraced her with open arms, giving her the greatest gift a little redheaded theatre geek could ever ask for - getting to be a part of this vibrant arts and culture scene. She may have never had the skills to be on the stage, but is thankful every day she gets to write about the inspiring people who do.
