This multimedia adventure mixes classic storytelling with projected illustrations to tell the story of Buck, the magnificent crossbred offspring of a St. Bernard and Scottish Collie. Kidnapped from his lavish life on a California estate and sent to work as a sled dog during the great Klondike Gold Rush, Buck fights to survive and becomes the most famous dog in the whole history of the northland.
The show uses a 180 degree projection screen that surrounds the performer. It features a unique mix of classical illustrations from the book with brand new drawings and animations created by artist Michael Rae and live score from award winning singer/songwriter Graham Weber.
Young and old – both adults and children- will love this sometimes funny and sometimes heartbreaking story of adventure and survival. This is a show that can’t be missed!
Based on the book by Jack London, adapted by Jason Tremblay
