Classic children’s story comes to Opera House stage

By From page A9 | May 24, 2012

The Woodland Opera House will present a family-friendly production of “Go, Dog. Go!” opening Friday and running on Fridays at 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. through June 3.

P.D. Eastman’s classic children’s book comes to life on stage in an exploration of movement, color and space. The dogs delve into life with gusto, creating a visual spectacle for the audience to feast upon.

“They snorkel. They howl at the moon. They ride a Ferris wheel. They sing and dance and climb trees,” a news release said. “It is a fantastic way for anyone, everyone, to spend the day.”

This stage adaptation was the winner of the 2008 Best Children’s Theater Production in St.Louis, Mo., by the River Front Times.

The cast includes Erik Catalan, Mary Ellen Price, Emily Jo Seminoff, Jocelyn Price, Jacob Hopkins and Jo Black. The show is directed by MJ Seminoff, with music direction by James C. Glica-Hernandez, and choreography by Emily Jo Seminoff.

Reserved seats are $16 for adults, $14 for senior citizens and $8 for children 17 and under, available at www.woodlandoperahouse.org or (530) 666-9617.
