Call of the Wild: Illustrated Edition 

November 18, 2022 | Doors 9:00 a.m. | Youth/Student $5 

This multimedia adventure mixes classic storytelling with projected illustrations to bring to life Jack London’s classic novel about Buck, a dog who is kidnapped and forced to work on a dog sled team during the great Klondike gold rush. The show uses a 180-degree projection screen that surrounds the performer with a live score from award-winning singer/songwriter Graham Weber. The show features a unique mix of classical illustrations from the book with brand-new drawings and animations created by artist Michael Rae. Both adults and children will love this sometimes funny and sometimes heart-breaking American literature classic story of adventure and survival.
