Hippoposthumous (Outdoor Theatre)

Music Theatre Outdoor


Doors Open at 7pm

The Unnatural Disaster Theatre Co. is thrilled to be bringing Hippoposthumous home to the valley to the STUNNING Benjamin Bridge Winery in Wolfville! Not only are Benjamin Bridge Canada's premiere sparkling wine house- but their vineyards and gorgeously landscaped property sit nestled in the hills of the Gaspereau Valley right along the river- the perfect spot to dive into this hippo-centric show! We hope you join us pre/post show at the open-air terrace for an incredible sunset view!

About the Show
"Hippoposthumous is a young, slightly nervous, and surprisingly polymathic hippopotamus living in Colombia’s lush Magdalena River- misplaced in time and space. With their future hanging in the balance, they wallow into the spotlight to explore through rhythm and rhyme the idea of “invasive species''- from Starlings in Halifax to Giraffes in Paris. This warm hearted tragicomic musical explores the duality of being an immigrant and unwitting colonizer and follows Hippoposthumous on a poetic odyssey to discover where they’re from and what it takes to truly belong."
