The team that brought a horse to life

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

about the mak­ing of the Na­tional The­atre of Great Bri­tain’s smash hit pro­duc­tion War Horse airs on ABC1 on Sun­day. Mak­ing War Horse is the story of how Michael Mor­purgo’s chil­dren’s novel be­came one of the most pop­u­lar and ac­claimed pro­duc­tions in the Na­tional The­atre’s his­tory. From its early devel­op­ment in the NT Stu­dio, see how Hand­spring Pup­pet Com­pany cre­ated the ground­break­ing tech­niques that brought a life­like horse to the stage. The spe­cial goes be­hind the scenes and into the re­hearsal room and features in­ter­views with the cast and cre­ative team who worked on cre­at­ing a stage clas­sic. War Horse plays the Arts Cen­tre Mel­bourne ahead of tours to Syd­ney and Bris­bane later this year.

Sun­day, 3pm, ABC1; The­atre, Bris­bane from Satur­day, July 6.
