'War Horse' bolts onto stage at Bob Carr

War Horse, winner of five 2011 Tony Awards including Best Play, has bolted onto the Orlando stage at Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre for a one-week engagement (Feb. 25 through March 2). Based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse was adapted to the stage by Nick Stafford.

Hailed by The New York Times as “theatrical magic,” WAR HORSE is the powerful story of young Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, who has been enlisted to fight for the English in World War I. In a tale the New York Daily News calls “spellbinding, by turns epic and intimate,” Joey is caught in enemy crossfire and ends up serving both sides of the war before landing in no man’s land. Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. What follows is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, filled with stirring music and songs and told with the some of the most innovative stagecraft of our time.

Presented by the National Theatre of Great Britain, in association with Handspring Puppet Company, the incredibly realistic movements of the life-size puppet horses take the production to yet another level of theatrical amazement.

Performances are Tuesday through Friday, February 25-28 at 8:00 p.m.; Saturday, March 1 at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.; and Sunday March 2 at 1:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Tickets for War Horse start at $41 and can be bought online at www.OrlandoBroadway.com or by calling 1-800-982-2787.
