Wortham Center for the Performing Arts: New Owner

( Thu., Jan. 16, 2020 - Sun., Jan. 19, 2020 )

Performed by The Last Great Hunt

Tina McGuire Theatre at the Wortham Center, 18 Biltmore Ave., Asheville, NC 28801


Bart is a boisterous puppy at the shelter, and Mabel is a lonely widow. The day they find each other marks the beginning of a profound friendship. But Mabel is old, and Bart is young – and, suddenly, he’s alone. Combining puppetry, live action and animation, New Owner transports audiences to a world full of adventures, told from a dog’s perspective. From the minds of Arielle Gray and Tim Watts, founding members of Australian theatre collective The Last Great Hunt, comes a touching and stunningly beautiful new story about loss, friendship and new beginnings - an up-close and personal experience at the intimate Tina McGuire Theatre.

Presented in partnership with the Asheville Humane Society.


Puppetry Workshop with The Last Great Hunt, January 17 at 4pm, $10
