Follow Daisy the sassy Westie through her dating adventures with Itchy, Champ and Bogie at the hippest, hottest place in town: Central Bark, where every dog has his day, and love conquers all. Daisy has promised her BFF (Best Friend Forever) she'd give the dating scene one more chance. She meets Champ the Collie, a charming but full of himself show dog; Itchy, a "humperactive" Jack Russell terrier; and Bogie, the darkly mysterious Lab/mutt who sticks his neck out for no one. This unusual quartet make their way through the day's scheduled events which include Singles With Friends, Agility Class, Speed Mating, Yappy Hour and Lovers with Leashes, which is when they pair up and leave the park. Daisy comes to the conclusion that Champ only has eyes for himself, Itchy can only be a friend, and Bogie is the dog for her. But when Daisy makes her desires known to Bogie, she gets a rude awakening; we learn that Bogie, a stray, has been living at the Dogpark for six months. Bogie confesses his love for Daisy just as Animal Control arrives to take him away. Will Bogie and Daisy ever be reunited? Fresh off its sold-out run at Milwaukee Rep comes Dogpark: The Musical, created by the team behind the hit Chaps! and Chaps! A Jingle Jangle Christmas!

"There's a wonderful sense of fun about Dogpark the Musical...a charming, endearing mixed-breed love story...told through told through clever, sort of '40s music—everything from hot jazz, torchy ballads and a touch of doo-wop." — Ashland Daily Tidings

"God loves a terrier! [Dogpark the Musical is] a romp of laughs, a welcome bit of off-leash fun!"— Milwaukee Shepherd Express

"At long last, some playwrights bark up the right tree. 'Dogpark: The Musical'...is all doggies all the time, in an absolutely charming 'walkies!' through the turf pooch parents hold dear." — The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

2009, Stackner Cabaret, Milwaukee Repertory Theatre

CHORUS SIZE

No Chorus

DAISY (West Highland Terrier) - slightly neurotic but oh so cute and sassy. Although she’s been burned by guys before, she’s still looking for Mr. Gooddog.


CHAMP (Collie) - charming, handsome, and knows it. A purebred, he’s a show dog, done a commercial or two. Lots of brawn but very little brain.


BOGIE (Mutt) - a streetwise black Lab/mix with a dark secret. He “sticks his neck out for nobody.”


ITCHY (Jack Russell Terrier) - the high energy goofball sidekick with a list of phobias as long as your arm. Quick with the lip, he’s the first to challenge, and the first to roll over on his back and confess, “Just kiddin’.”
