GO, DOG. GO!

Book by P.D. Eastman
Music by Michael Koerner
Lyrics by Steven Dietz & Allison Gregory
Come and play with MC Dog and her friends in Go, Dog. Go! the musical, adapted from the classic children's book by P.D. Eastman. Dogs zoom around the stage in this joyful play about playing. They snorkel. They howl at the moon. They ride a ferris wheel. They sing and dance and climb trees. A big and little musical world of doggy fun. Like a pop-up book that comes to life – and never stops!
