ABOUT THE SHOW:
A classic book comes to life through silly dances, fun music and rambunctious play.
Oh, to be a dog! They howl at the moon. They snorkel and ride a Ferris wheel. Some sing and dance and even drive cars because they have someplace to go. In one hour’s time, your family will experience the simple joys of life through the eyes of our hilarious and adorable dogs. Warning: canine gusto is contagious!
Best for ages 3+.
The cast of Go, Dog. Go! features some of Youth Theatre’s brightest and youngest talent. The cast of 19 actors (ages 10-17) are from Mercer Island, Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, Issaquah and Newcastle.
