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.
