War Horse hits the stage

Based on a novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse has played to packed audiences on London’s West End for over five years and is now making it’s way to Australia. YOURLifeChoices has two tickets to be won by a lucky member, just for answering a simple question. 

So just what about this stage show has kept audiences returning time and time again? With 18 puppets, including two horses, Joey and Topthorn, and a story so compelling that Steven Spielberg turned it in to an Academy Award nominated movie after seeing it performed in London, it’s hardly surprising this spectacle has endured for so long. Also suitable for children 10 years plus, the show makes for a great family outing. Nearly two million people can’t be wrong!

Need some more convincing? Why not watch this truly amazing trailer for yourself?
