The Wilds Logo

Love knows no bounds.

When Wendell discovers that his wife Tilda and their beloved tree have vanished from the backyard, he must venture into the nearby forest to bring them home. Confronted with shifting landscapes, unusual creatures, and a mysterious lurking presence, Wendell soon learns that the key to finding Tilda is to first unlock the mystery of The Wilds. Charming and profoundly touching, this wordless award-winning show features WONDERHEADS’ signature masks, whimsical puppetry, and enchanting music, and moves its audiences to both laughter and tears. Pixar meets Miyazaki meets Henson in this extraordinary adventure!

Running time: 55 minutes, no intermission.

This production touches on themes of grief, loss, and love. Recommended for a general audience (ages 8+).
