What is War Horse?

War Horse is making its Wisconsin Premier at the Fox Cities P.A.C. June 25-30. Learn more about the show The New York Times raves as, "theatrical magic."

As World War I begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s 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.

Life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses that are strong enough for men to ride. The horses’ flanks, hides and muscles are built of steel, leather and aircraft cables.

It’s a play with music! War Horse includes a young girl who sings and plays the fiddle, accompanied by a male vocalist who also plays the accordion.

Winner of five 2011 Tony®-Awards including Best Play.

War Horse was the inspiration for 2011 Steven Spielberg’s feature film of the same name, which earned six Oscar nominations including Best Picture.
