GMA Screens ‘War Horse’ from the National Theatre in London
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning presents the National Theatre Live production of ‘War Horse’ on Saturday, March 1, at 4 p.m., in the Riley Center for the Arts at Burr and Burton Academy in Manchester, Vt. Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel and adapted for the stage, this London presentation takes audiences on an extraordinary journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of First World War France. Filled with stirring music and songs, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage. Tickets are available online at bbatickets.com. For more information, you may call the GMA office at 802-867-0111.
