Inspired by our own local headlines, the story is about a small town that is split in half over a homegrown controversy: who gets to keep a run-away dog? It’s about the way rumors and public opinions spiral out of control, and how people fall in love and reinvent themselves on the internet . But above all, it’s a classic musical comedy tale of Boy meets Girl meets Dog. This production is the 2nd collaboration between Michael, Mark and Jill Turnbow, having previously produced "We're Cancelling Cable”..and “Other Empty Threats". Friday7:30 pm-Sat. 2 pm & 7:30 pm. $10.00 Phone: 805.927.8190
