When Wendell discovers that both his wife and their beloved tree have vanished from the backyard, he must venture into The Wilds and face its mysteries to bring them home. Charming and profoundly moving, this wordless award-winning show features WONDERHEADS’ signature masks along with dazzling puppetry and moves its audiences to both laughter and tears. A truly unique show where Pixar meets Miyazaki meets Henson in this extraordinary adventure. WONDERHEADS’ work has been described as living animation; their masks come to life in a way that must be seen to be believed, and their stories reach profound, funny and heartwarming depths that you wouldn’t think possible of masks and puppets.
Don’t miss this spellbinding five star show that the CBC describes as “Captivating and magical” and the Winnipeg Free Press as “Nothing short of exceptional.”
Made for adults by kids at heart, this show is a little dark and a little light. Recommended for a general audience (ages 8+).
5 Stars - “A profoundly moving story of love, loss and hope.” – CBC 5 Stars - “There aren’t enough adjectives to describe this astounding production.” - Vue Weekly 5 Stars - “Within the first few minutes of the show, the audience is drawn into a magical, meditative world through music, movement and spectacular cartoon-like masks and puppets.” - Check the Program
Don’t miss out. Only 50 seats per performance!!!
