The year is 1914. With Europe gearing for war, Joey, a beloved family horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to the frontlines in France. What follows is a harrowing and unforgettable journey.
War Horse, the five-time Tony Award-winning musical, is coming to Vancouver, Sept. 24-Sept. 29. While tickets are going fast, visitors to Vancouver have a chance to access a special promotional package.
Participating hotels throughout the city have joined up with Broadway Across Canada to offer unique stay-and-watch deals at discount prices. Guests who book a package get accommodation and tickets to War Horse matinee showings on Sept. 28 or Sept. 29, as well as a $50 American Express gift card.
Seen by millions of people around the world, War Horse traces Joey’s odyssey as he gets caught in enemy fire, serves on both sides in the war and ultimately finds himself trapped alone in no-man’s land. Acclaimed life-sized puppets – strong enough for actors to ride – bring the action to life on stage, helped along by a stirring musical score.
