For Immediate Release
A FREE event, perfect for the whole family.
Go behind the scenes at the international blockbuster WAR HORSE. Find out how this spectacular and ingenious show was developed -- from original concept, through workshops, to first performances, and then to productions around the world.
Associate Puppetry Director, Tommy Luther has been with WAR HORSE from the very beginning in 2006. He has been there when the show was just an idea, and he originated the role of Joey "heart" (one of three parts of the title horse in the show).
You'll meet Joey and Topthorn. You'll get inside information about how these majestic puppets work. You'll find out how the various scenic elements come together to create the magic that is WAR HORSE.
As a bonus, one lucky audience member will have the opportunity to ride Joey on the stage of the Princess of Wales Theatre.
*Details of riding Joey will be supplied to those who book tickets to the event.
Bring your cameras, because for this special event only, photography and video recording will be allowed in the Princess of Wales Theatre for the first time ever.
Admission is FREE, but you must order your tickets online or by phone. Seating is general admittance so arrive early.
