DESCRIPTION

Against a breathtaking backdrop of scenic projections, this multi-media adventure uses dramatic storytelling to recreate Jack London’s novel about the canine offspring of a St. Bernard and a Scottish Collie. The magnificent Buck is kidnapped from his owner’s California estate and sold as a sled dog during the great Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. Through the heroics and hardships of life in the Yukon Territory, he fights to survive and becomes the most famous dog in the history of the northland. Three enormous screens surrounding the actor on stage advance the action in this engaging and fast-paced story, adapted by Jason Tremblay.
