About this program

1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. England, 1914. As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and New York. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.

Through a panel (cast and crew) interview and Q&A session, students gain an understanding of the educational background, training, skills and competencies related to specific career fields in the performing arts directly from Broadway professionals.

Careers in the Performing Arts enriches your students’ classroom experience and is a joint educational initiative of PlayhouseSquare and WVIZ/PBS and 90.3 WCPN ideastream.
Teachers benefit from bringing professionals right into the classroom through the technology of distance learning!  Our Teacher’s Guide connects the experience to the classroom curriculum.
