Western Oregon University to present Wonderheads’, Loon

Monmouth – Western Oregon University’s Department of Theatre and Dance invites you to experience WONDERHEADS, LOON

A man.  The moon.  A most peculiar love story.

Donning their signature oversized masks and propelled by questions of amorous proportions, the WONDERHEADS step into the life of a terribly lonely man and look for love.  Francis, who is plagued by isolation and tickled by whispers of childhood imagination, has hit rock bottom and discovers that he has nowhere to go…but up.  And up.  And up!  But will plucking the moon from the sky satisfy his deepest desires?

In this strange and beautiful story, the WONDERHEADS journey into the mysterious stuff of love and poke and prod its very nature.  Why do we love?  Is it necessary for survival?  Do we serve it, or does it serve us?  Coupled with whimsical puppetry, fantastical imagery and a splash of irreverence, the Heads take a step outside of reality and walk alongside it, discovering what we might learn by looking at things just slightly askew.

Western Oregon University will host one performance on April 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Rice Auditorium on the WOU campus.
Tickets for Loon can be purchased at the Rice Auditorium Box Office by calling 503-838-8462. Ticket prices are $ 7 for students; $10 for seniors (60 and older) and $12 for general admission. Box Office hours are Monday – Friday, 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.
