WKU’s Department of Theatre and Dance opens its Children’s Theatre Season on Friday (Oct. 12) with the hilarious show Two Dumb Dogs, The Amazing Adventures of Ferdo and Floof. Silliness abounds as two mischievous dogs run away to seek fame and fortune. They must rally all their brainpower to contend with a cursed prince, a hapless poodle, the legendary Dog Shouter, and the terribly wicked Queen.
Show times are 4 p.m. Friday (Oct. 12), 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 13) and 3 p.m. Sunday (Oct. 14) in the Lab Theatre at WKU’s Gordon Wilson Hall. All tickets are $5. Advance tickets are available at wku.showare.com or by calling the box office at (270) 745-3121.
“The WKU Children’s Theatre productions are a wonderful opportunity for young people to experience the magic of live theatre,” said WKU Instructor Carol Jordan, the program advisor. “Our students are thrilled to share their talents with the greater community.”
More than 15,000 people were entertained by the WKU Department of Theatre and Dance last year. The department’s offerings include four Mainstage productions, two Mainstage dance concerts, two student-choreographed dance concerts, a Children’s Theatre Series, a Studio Series of student-directed works, a Before Broadway Series featuring a staged reading of a new musical, and a Next Stage Series of showcases and works in progress.
