About the Show
Orlando REP proudly presents TheaterWorksUSA’s NY Times Critic’s Pick, Dog Man: The Musical.
Based on the worldwide bestselling series from Dav Pilkey, the creator of Captain Underpants, this hilarious musical chronicles the adventures of Dog Man! Best buds George and Harold have been creating comics for years, but now that they are in 5th grade, they figure it is time to level up and write a musical based on their favorite character, Dog Man, the crime-biting sensation who is part dog, part man, and ALL HERO!! How hard could it be? Find out in this epic musical adventure featuring Flippy the cyborg fish, Beasty Buildings, and Petey, the world’s most evil cat!
