Head of Creative Arts at Christ College, John Johnson, explained: “War Horse is set at the dawn of World War I, and tells the powerful and uplifting story of young Albert, his beloved horse Joey, and the unimaginable obstacles they overcome both individually and together. Central to the show are the life-sized puppets which bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage. Filled with stirring music and some of the most innovative stagecraft of our time, this is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, and a genuinely unforgettable theatrical experience.”
On Monday 30th June the students will attend pre-show workshops at Cardiff’s Millennium Centre based on‘Connecting to World War One Through War Horse’ and ‘puppet making’. The students will then watch the show on Monday evening and see the wonderful Handspring Theatre Company Puppets in action.
The following day Christ College is delighted to announce that we will welcome the National Theatre to Brecon to lead a workshop in ‘puppet handling’ so that students will have the opportunity to really get to grips with how to make a puppet come to life.
Mr Johnson concluded: “This package will offer the students a wonderful opportunity to experience this wonderful show both as an audience member and as a Drama Student.”
