Lakewood Cultural Center Presents Theatre Heroes CALL OF THE WILD: ILLUSTRATED EDITION
Theatre Heroes bring Jack London's classic tale to life on stage for young audiences ages 9 and up and their families. This multimedia adventure mixes performance and classic storytelling with projected illustrations to tell the story of Buck, the magnificent offspring of a Saint Bernard and Scottish collie.
Kidnapped from his lavish life on a California estate and sent to work as a sled dog during the great Klondike Gold Rush, Buck fights to survive and becomes the most famous dog in the whole history of the northland.
The show uses a 180-degree projection screen that surrounds the performer. It features a unique mix of classical illustrations from the book with new drawings and animations created by artist Michael Rae and an original score by award-winning singer/songwriter Graham Weber.

Tickets start at $7 and are available at 303-987-7845, Lakewood.org/LCCPresents or the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office, 470 S. Allison Parkway (Wadsworth and West Alameda Avenue).
The Lakewood Cultural Center Presents 2018-2019 season is generously supported by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), celebrating 30 years of culture for all; Colorado Creative Industries; National Endowment for the Arts; and The Denver Post Community.
