The Center For The Arts Presents Call of the Wild: Illustrated Edition
Friday, November 20, 2020 Postponed
Presented in partnership with our friends at the California Arts Council
The Call of the Wild is presented as a Special Student Livestream.
This multi-media adventure mixes classic storytelling with projected illustrations to tell the story of Buck, the magnificent cross-bred 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.
“Noel Gaulin is such a gifted storyteller; you simply cannot help but fall in love (and experience a little heart-break) with his portrayal of Buck. The projections are truly stunning, adding to the company’s concept of an “Illustrated Edition” and the music captivates from the beginning. I believe this piece has the power to draw schools and public audiences in droves and will leave a lasting impact.” – Jennifer Luck, presenter, Paramount Theatre
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.
Young and old – both adults and children- will love this sometimes funny and sometimes heart-breaking story of adventure and survival. Pull your friends off the couch and toss your neighbors in the car, this is the show that can’t be missed!
