War Horse at the Bushnell Theater

        


    THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED



    Join WPI alumni and friends for this special showing of War Horse. Don't miss this opportunity to take advantage of a discounted ticket price plus spend time with your WPI family over lunch! Lunch is sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations.

    The production, based on the acclaimed novel, depicts a powerful and imaginative drama set at the outbreak of World War I in the English countryside and also the fields of battle in France and Germany. War Horse is filled with stirring music and songs, and at the heart of the show are life-sized puppets, created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, which bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to life on stage strong enough for men to ride.   “The puppetry is nothing short of miraculous,” according to The Times of London.

    Guests will gather for lunch at the theater prior to the show. Menu details below.
