Jack London’s classic tale brought to life!
This multi-media 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.
Performed by Austin-based Theatre Heroes, 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.
Audience members young and old will enjoy this performance but it is best for ages 9+.SPECIAL EVENTSMeet and Greet with Powder, Steamboat Ski Patrol’s Ski Safety Dog
