'Making War Horse' - Great Primer for Live Show at PPAC

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. Rhode Island PBS presents the film on Wednesday, May 29 at 10 p.m., with encore broadcast on Sunday, June 2 at 7 p.m.

From its early development in the National Theatre Studio, see how Handspring Puppet Company created the groundbreaking techniques that brought a lifelike horse to the stage. Behind the scenes and into the rehearsal room, featuring interviews with the cast and creative team, Making War Horse documents this unique theatrical collaboration and the creation of a stage classic.

The stage production is coming to the Providence Performing Arts Center, and Rhode Island PBS has tickets for the opening night performance on June 5.
