Go Dog Go!

April 14 – 23
Mussetter-Struble Theater

By P.D. Eastman
Adapted for the stage by Steven Dietz and Allison Gregory
Music by Michael Koerner
Directed by Gina Marie Hayes

P.D. Eastman’s delightful children’s book comes to new life on stage in a musical exploration of movement, color and space. The loveable and adventurous dogs delve into life with gusto as they snorkel, howl at the moon, ride a ferris wheel, sing and dance, and even climb trees!


Join us after the 2:00PM performances on Sun. April 16 or Sat. April 22 for a free 45 minute long creative drama workshop with Northwestern teaching artists and members of the cast. In this fast-paced and energetic workshop, young audience members will explore themes of the play through drama games, act out scenes from the story, and play with fun design elements like the wonky props onstage during the show! The workshop is free and open to any child who attends, but will be most engaging for students who are between 3-5 years old.
