Partner with Pantages in “War Horse: Celebrating Our Heroes,” Sept 1-Oct. 13

 

In conjunction with the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War I (July 28, 1914), the Hollywood Pantages Theatre (Nederlander) is proud to announce a six-week-long appreciation and awareness initiative, “War Horse: Celebrating Our Heroes,” that culminates in a return engagement of the critically acclaimed Tony Award-winning production of War Horse, for one week only, Oct. 8 – 13.

For six weeks, the Hollywood Pantages Theatre (Nederlander) will commemorate the bravery of servicemen and women past, present and future, and invites major media, retail, transportation, hospitality and civic partners to host and promote special offers and incentives which will benefit our current and retired members of the armed forces while drawing attention to a historic and pivotal time in American history, World War I.

The National Theatre of Great Britain’s epic War Horse, hailed by The New York Times as “theatrical magic,” is the powerful story of young Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, who has been enlisted to fight for the English in World War I. Joey is caught in enemy crossfire and ends up serving both sides of the war before landing in no man’s land. Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. What follows is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship, filled with stirring music and songs and told with the some of the most innovative stagecraft of our time.

War Horse runs one week only, Oct. 8–13, Tues.–Fri., 8 p.m.; Sat., 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; Sun., 1 p. m. and 6:30 p.m. Opening Night: Tues., Oct. 8, 8 p. m., runs 2 hours and 30 minutes. Recommended for Ages 8 and up. In consideration of audiences, no one under 5 admitted to the theatre. The Pantages Theatre is located at 6233 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028.
