Plot Synopsis

Best buds George and Harold have been creating comics for years, but now that they’re in 5th grade, they figure it’s time to level up. They set out to write a musical based on their favorite character, Dog Man–the crime-biting sensation. He’s part dog, part man, and All Hero! How hard could writing a musical be?

With the head of a dog and the body of a policeman, Dog Man loves to fight crime and chew on the furniture. But while trying his best to be a good boy, can he save the city from Flippy the cyborg fish and his army of Beasty Buildings? Can he catch Petey, the world’s most evil cat, who’s cloned himself to exact revenge on the doggy do-gooder? Will George and Harold finish their show before lunchtime?

Bring the family to find out in this epic musical adventure featuring the hilarity and heart of Dav Pilkey’s beloved characters. Dog Man: The Musical is a TheaterWorksUSA production, with book and lyrics by Kevin Del Aguila, music by Brad Alexander, and direction and choreography by Jen Wineman. Audiences and critics alike have praised the musical.
