Moving from the city to a new
house in the country can be tough. Just ask Henry, who can’t find a
playmate in his new neighborhood! Luckily, he’s got Mudge, a great big,
182-pound canine buddy, with whom he can share all kinds of adventures!

Henry discovers that having a
pet is a big responsibility — they need to be fed, they need to be
taken out for walks, and of course they need lots of love and playtime!
And when the dog is as big as Mudge is, they also need good training.
Henry teaches his new friend to sit, heel, and shake his hand, but
rolling over is one trick Henry just can’t seem to teach Mudge, no
matter how hard he tries.

When Henry’s cousin Annie comes
for a visit, Mudge is so charmed by her that he finally rolls over at
her command! Henry thinks Mudge must love Annie more than him, because
the dog only does the trick for her. Very upset, Henry runs away into
the cold dark woods to find adventures on his own. Mudge follow’s the
boy’s scent into the forest—he really does love Henry and doesn’t want
to be without him.

Will the two friends be
reunited? Find out in this Theatreworks musical, based on the
best-selling series of books by Cynthia Rylant.
