‘Dogs’ bring laughs to Sutter Street
Sutter Street Theatre presents “Two Dumb Dogs — The Adventures of Ferdo and Floof,”a hilarious comedy with lessons that include discovering self-confidence, using your brain and recognizing that following rules is sometimes a good thing.
Ferdo and Floof are two not-very-bright dogs — well … at least not to your average fifth-grader. The dogs strongly desire to break the rules of their owner, Roger, and constantly get into trouble in the process. Their adventures take them on a trip to seek fame and fortune on their own. They enter the enchanted forest — despite the warnings of the wise old owl — and encounter a cursed prince who has been turned to stone by the terribly wicked Queen Malevella as well as a hapless poodle Mimi and the legendary Dog Shouter. Ferdo and Floof must rally their brainpower to release the prince and escape from the queen’s dungeon.
The play by Edith Weiss is directed by Allen Schmeltz.
“Two Dumb Dogs – The Adventures of Ferdo and Floof,” runs through July 6 with shows at 1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $17 general admission, $15 seniors, $13 children 12 and younger. There is a discount of $2 per ticket for groups of 10 or more. Birthday parties are also available. For tickets visit SutterStreetTheatre.com or call (916) 353-1001.
