Giveaway: War Horse, May 22 at Walton Arts Center


It’s hard to believe, but the final show of Walton Arts Center’s 2012-13 broadway season is coming up this month. As it happens, the WAC may have saved one of the best for last.

“War Horse,” the five-time Tony Award-winning show about young Albert and his beloved horse, Joey, opens on Wednesday, May 22. The show, which is currently selling out houses in London and New York, was recently called “a landmark theatre event” by Time Magazine.

In addition to the powerfully moving story behind the show, it also features some incredible life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company.

We have two pairs of tickets to give away to the show.

Win ’em.
