Background

JACK LONDON’S CLASSIC TALE LIVE ON STAGE

This multi-media adventure mixes classic story telling 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.

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!
