Enjoy the Tail-Wagging Delight of Go, Dog. Go!

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, January 8, 2019 – Trike Theatre returns to Walton Arts Center with Go, Dog. Go! on Saturday, Jan. 19 and 26 at 10 am, 2 and 4 pm as part of the Mattel Kid’s Series.

Tickets are $9 for kids and $15 for adults and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.

P.D. Eastman’s iconic tale of dogs has been a family favorite for more than 50 years. From red dogs to green dogs, big dogs to little dogs, Trike Theatre’s production will leave audiences of all breeds wagging their tails with delight.

“Since we adults are our child’s first teacher, the play also challenges us to put on our own imaginative, creative hats and dance at a few more dog parties,” Trike’s Artistic Director Kassie Misiewicz said.

Trike Theatre’s Go, Dog. Go! features a local creative team and cast of professional actors:
