We have a fabulous giveaway to announce! We’ve paired up with the Broadway Across America Cincinnati office to offer two tickets for a very special VIP reception featuring the horse puppet and puppeteers from WAR HORSE.
Like me, you might be somewhat familiar with the story of War Horse. The story started out as a novel (Michael Morpurgo, author) and it was then adapted into a play. The stage play has been a sellout hit in the UK and New York – and it ultimately inspired Steven Spielberg to make the movie of the same name.
I remember seeing the movie trailers and I know there’s a BIG horse in the movie. So, I have to admit, I found it strange that the story was presented as a play. I mean, really, a horse is one of the main characters! How are they going to make that happen?
Puppetry! AMAZING puppetry!
Not only did they make the horse “work” for the stage, it’s AMAZING! Now that I’ve seen the puppetry (via video – below), I am a huge fan and can’t wait to see the play.
The War Horse horse puppet and the puppeteers will be here in Cincinnati next Thursday (August 9, 2012) for a special VIP reception at the Aronoff Center. This exclusive sneak preview event of the War Horse puppetry features a demo of the puppet and the puppeteers will offer a Q&A session.
And we have two tickets for the VIP reception to give to one lucky person!
