Now booking student matinees: THE HUNTER AND THE BEAR by PIGPEN THEATRE CO.
The critically acclaimed PigPen Theatre Co., creators of WT's 2013 smash-hit production of The Old Man and The Old Moon, brings their considerable talents to this original tale. The Hunter and The Bear tells the haunting story of an imaginative young boy and his father, the pragmatic hunter tasked with protecting their isolated town. When his son disappears in the woods, the search to recover him will lead the hunter, and eventually the entire community, through a landscape teeming with dark secrets and supernatural threats.
Cast in flickering campfire light, this combination frontier ghost-story and modern-day parable unfolds in PigPen Theatre Co.'s signature style: using resourceful staging, captivating storytelling, ingenious shadow puppetry and award-winning folk music to fuel a headlong plunge into the darkest part of the woods.
Student matinee performances of THE HUNTER AND THE BEAR are available at 10am on:
Each performance includes a post-show discussion with the actors and a comprehensive Study Guide, aligned to the Common Core. Scholarship tickets are available! Book your tickets today!
