Wagging tails, wet noses take the stage
Sacramento Theatre Company presents the Northern California premiere of “BARK! The Musical,” a howlingly funny, fast-paced and poignant tribute to man’s best friend.
Performed by a six member cast and told and sung from the dog’s point of view — from the little puppy who yearns to bark like a real dog, to an opera singing poodle and a street mutt who raps — this musical possesses the huge heart and the playful joyousness present in man’s truest friends. Young and old will all find an emotional connection with “BARK!”
The cast members are: Armond Edward Dorsey as King, the Labrador Retriever; Jessica Goldman as Boo, the Cocker Spaniel; Miranda D. Lawson as Golde, the Bull Dog; Sean Patrick Nill is Sam, the Pit Bull mutt; Tyler Wipfli is Chanel, the French Poodle; and Scottie Woodward is Rocks, the Jack Rusell pup.
