About the Show

More about The Pound: A Musical for the Dogs


It is Laura’s first day of work at Eastview Municipal Animal Shelter (working under the shelter’s director, Ms. Hargreave) when she discovers her awesome talent: she can actually understand what the dogs in the shelter are saying! As she gets to know all of the dogs, it becomes clear to Laura that each dog has a sad story to tell about how they ended up there. The dogs themselves try to remain hopeful about their situation - even though adoptions are few. Laura then strives to find a way out of the shelter for all of the dogs - even as its future is threatened by a cash-strapped city government and the dogs remain trapped in an uncaring system with an uncertain future . . .

The Pound: A Musical for the Dogs is a fast-moving, fun show with a wide variety of songs for dog lovers of all ages. The subject matter is appropriate for children ages 5 and up, but also provides social commentary for adults as well - it's a show for dog lovers of all ages!

Full-length running time: ca. 90 minutes
