Horse and His Boy play coming up!

Postby hogglestock » Feb 15, 2019 8:32 am

Anyone here planning to go to the Horse and Hiis Boy play at the Logos Theater? Anyone following the news about it but can't go?
They've had the sign for it up for a couple of weeks now, and showed one of the horse puppets on a live Facebook video recently.

Here's a link to the video I saw--looks like there are a few others, too.

Yes, I am! I'd heard there was a group going, but I didn't know who or how many...

hogglestock, will you be going on the first? Right now there are 14 going I think. If you're going the same day I'll have them send you a PM.... or post here, whatever they want to do. ;)

Yes, I've got a ticket for opening night. :) And I just got an e-mail that they're doing a red-carpet-type event that night, too.

Hi hogglestock, what date is that event?
I read about a gala night before the date we are booked for, which is Friday 1st.

Looks like the Gala's February 25th, a master class with Douglas Gresham on the 27th, and opening night March 1st (with the red carpet thing from 5:30-6:30 before the 7:00 play).
Here's the event page https://thelogostheatre.com/. The red carpet info came as an image in an e-mail. I'm not sure if it would be ok to post that here?

Yep, there's a whole bunch of us staff/moderators going. If you would like to meet up with us, just look for the large group probably wearing Narnia t-shirts and geeking out. ;) :p

Oh, will there be a report of some sort? *Drooling with envy*

Thanks, hogglestock, that looks like a good fun thing for us to attend before the show!! So, do I need to get dressed up, I mean really dressed up? - oh wait, I'll be in my Narniaweb tee shirt and Narniaweb hoodie!

Well, I guess that settles the question of whether I wear my NW shirt or not... :)

The horses came to visit while Douglas Gresham was speaking today!

If there's a better way to share the picture, let me know. :) I just did what was quick and easy.

Very cool hogglestock!

Regarding the dress code: I called the theatre and they said there is quite a range. Some guys wear jeans and a nicer shirt. A few will wear a suit.

I'm going to wear a long-sleeve polo shirt and wear my NW t-shirt over the top.

Outdoors, it should be perfect weather for a NarniaWeb hoodie!

I have to say that watching the play was worth the trip from Minnesota! Granted that I am no expert on stage performances, but I really enjoyed the play. The talking horses were wonderful. The costumes were lovely. I wish I could see it again.
