BARK! The Musical… How The Little Dog Found His Voice (Swansong Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 7 August 2018

“C’mon you pussies – BARK!” is the clarion call of this endearingly hilarious musical, about a rescue dog receiving heartfelt advice from his canine friends in the park. The cast all play dogs; none of their owners appear though the dogs do sing lovingly about them. The choreography is laugh-out-loud funny, lots of scratching and sniffing, and the witty songs have been carefully researched to reflect the realities of dog life. I particularly enjoyed Laura Hyde as Golda the Jewish pug, and Brian James Leys as King, a gently authentic elderly labrador who made some adults in the audience cry. Musically, Emily Chesterton bow-wowed as Chanel the operatic afghan hound. This show is mandatory for anyone who loves dogs!

C, until 27 Aug.
