Saturday March 13 4:00 to 5:30 pm
Saturday March 13 7:30 to 9:00 pm

Trail & District Arts Council presents The Wilds by WONDERHEADS as part of the 6 Beats Apart series.

When Wendell discovers that both his wife and their beloved tree have vanished from the backyard, he must venture into The Wilds and face its mysteries to bring them home. Charming and profoundly moving, this wordless award-winning show features WONDERHEADS’ signature masks along with dazzling puppetry and moves its audiences to both laughter and tears. A truly unique show where Pixar meets Miyazaki meets Henson in this extraordinary adventure.

WONDERHEADS’ work has been described as living animation; their masks come to life in a way that must be seen to be believed, and their stories reach profound, funny and heartwarming depths that you wouldn’t think possible of masks and puppets.

Don’t miss this spellbinding five star show that the CBC describes as “Captivating and magical” and the Winnipeg Free Press as “Nothing short of exceptional.”

Made for adults by kids at heart, this show is a little dark and a little light. Recommended for

a general audience (ages 8+).
