Go, Dog. Go! brings the adventures of P.D. Eastman’s book to life in a frolicking musical dog party. The cast of this beloved preschool favorite has gone to the dogs—with cars, hats, audience participation and even a wild game of ball—and even gives some important lessons about life, between innings. Go, Dog. Go! is a musical romp full of surprises, color, clowning, vaudeville, singing, barking and of course, six lovable dogs! Presented by Childsplay from Tempe, Arizona, Go, Dog. Go! is tailored for children, ages 3 to 7.
In the words of KBAQ Theatre Critic Chris CUrcio, “As always Childsplay creates a variety of winning special effects, wild set pieces, creative costumes and a bunch of other theatrical tricks that take the young audiences on a magical journey and adventure."
