Go, Dog. Go!

Go, Dog. Go!

Adapted by Allison Gregory and Steven Dietz

Adapted from the book Go, Dog. Go! by P.D. Eastman

Directed by Ray Ficca

This musical world of doggy fun is like a pop-up book that comes to life! P.D. Eastman’s beloved children’s book features big dogs and little dogs, black dogs and white dogs, and all dogs in between. They delve into life with gusto, creating a visual spectacle of movement and color for audience members of all ages. The dogs swim and play. They howl at the moon. They ride a Ferris wheel. They sing, dance, and even climb trees—all on stage in front of you.
