This multi-media adventure, based on the novel by Jack London, mixes classic storytelling with projected illustrations to tell the story of Buck, the magnificent offspring of a Saint Bernard and a 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 history of the northland.

This moving performance uses a 180-degree projection screen that surrounds the single performer, who portrays 25 different characters. A live score from award winning singer/songwriter Graham Weber accompanies a unique mix of classical illustrations from the book with brand new drawings and animations created by artist Michael Rae.

 

“The projections are truly stunning, adding to the company’s concept of an ‘Illustrated Edition,’ and the music captivates from the beginning.”
— JENNIFER LUCK, PRESENTER, PARAMOUNT THEATRE
