Lovelace Studio Theater at the
Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts


 Red Bridge Arts & Traverse Theatre Company’s BLACK BEAUTY, a “five-star triumph” (The Guardian), gallops into the Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts with a story of hope, friendship and courage from Friday, April 26 to Sunday, May 5, 2019, in The Wallis’s Lovelace Studio Theater. Created by Andy Manley, Andy Cannon and Shona Reppe, this re-telling blends storytelling, music and puppetry, offering fun and adventure for fans of the book, the UK’s classic TV show and those brand new to the tale. From the cozy horsebox they call home, Andy and Andy take the bit firmly between their teeth to weave the classic tale, as it has never been seen before. The production, which includes audience engagement, is recommended for families with kids ages 5 and older.

According to critics, Black Beauty is “fun, joyful and touching… a worthy recipient of the Black Beauty baton,” (The List) and “very funny and deliciously unique” (Sunday Herald).

“”We are fortunate to welcome back the talented Black Beauty team that delighted our audiences several years ago with White, their winner of three Edinburgh Fringe Festival awards,” says The Wallis’ Artistic Director Paul Crewes. “They are among Scotland’s most experienced makers of theater for young audiences, having produced highly regarded and internationally renowned work.”

Tickets, $25, are on sale now and available at TheWallis.org/Beauty. The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts is located at 9390 N. Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills. To purchase tickets and for more information, please call 310-746-4000 or visit TheWallis.org/Beauty.
