VDPAC presents Wonderheads’ The Wilds

February 29 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$25 – $30
The Wilds by Wonderhead

The Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre presents the grand finale of its 2023-24 SPOTLIGHT Season’s Theatre Series with Wonderheads’ The Wilds.

Described as a “Pixar-meets-Miyazaki-meets-Jim Henson, The Wilds is a fantastical love story set to take audiences on a heart-filled quest into the mysterious wilds.

When Wendell discovers that his wife Tilda and their beloved tree have vanished from their backyard, he must risk everything to venture into the nearby forest to bring them home. Confronted with shifting landscapes, unusual creatures and a mysterious lurking presence, Wendell soon learns that the key to finding Tilda is to first unlock the mystery of The Wilds.

Charming and profoundly touching, this wordless, award-winning show, characterized as “living animation” features Wonderheads’ signature masks, whimsical puppetry and enchanting music, and moves audiences to both laughter and tears along Wendell’s extraordinary adventure.

The Wilds features Pedro M. Siqueira as Wendell and Loreto Espinoza as Tilda and the Creatures of the Wilds. Audiences can expect to encounter performers in handcrafted masks that reveal profound, funny, and heartwarming depths. This production touches on themes of grief, loss, and love. Recommended for a general audience (ages 8+).

The Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre presents The Wilds on Thursday, February 29, 2024 at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $30 for Adults, $27 for Seniors and $25 for Students, available at the TicketSeller.

The performance is 60 minutes with no intermission.
