Adapted from the best-selling 1961 children’s book by P. D. Eastman, “Go, Dog. Go!” is a carnival of music, bright colors and physical comedy, according to director Tony Gunn.

“If you or your children find yourselves chuckling during the performance, just remember that you’ve been warned,” said Gunn. “These dogs are going to sing, dance, climb trees, swim, sleep, drive cars, jump rope and play badminton, all for your amusement, and if you’re not careful, you might find yourself on stage with them.”

Cast members are Briana Shipley, Kira Jacobs, Jessalyn Davis, Lindsey Mogensen, Katie Golden and Jordan Long.

Production crew members include dramaturg La Beene, stage manager Lindsi Neilson, scenic designer Heather Starr, makeup and hair designer Amber Wilson, lighting designer Mike Handley and sound designer Troy Streeter.

Following its run on the BYU campus, “Go, Dog. Go!” will tour nearly 40 elementary schools statewide.
