About this show

Tusk is a Family friendly musical told with theatrical artistry of silhouette and shadow puppets, about the survival of an elephant family. Book by Steven Billing, Norman Rea & Steven Yuhasz; Music by Bryon Sommers; Additional Music by David Salih & Craig Strang; Lyrics by Norman Rea. Tusk is the universal story of sharing life's lessons that will challenge your sense of humankind. Through the "shadows" the company of actors engages the audience in emotional and physical participation, challenging the line between human and beast. This deceptively simple tale is a powerful allegory for the perennial desire of survival and control. With echoes of phenomena as wide-ranging as the Holocaust, animal testing, prisoners of war, animal cruelty, and slavery, this evocative and powerful musical is an absorbing and thought-provoking journey. Bring your imagination...
