War Horse Theater Trip
Thursday, Oct. 18, 7:30 pm, at the Boston Opera House. Cost is $102, which include orchestra seat and bus transportation. War Horse uses larger than life puppetry to tell the story of Albert and his beloved horse, Joey. Joey is sold to the cavalry in World War I and shipped to France, where he is soon caught up in enemy fire while serving on both sides.
