Mile Square Theater Saturday matinee in support of Hoboken Charter School

The Mile Square Theater announces:


Go, Kids, Go to Mile Square Theatre’s Production of Go, Dog. Go!



Big dogs, little dogs and dogs of all shapes, sizes and colors will fill the stage in Mile Square Theatre’s upcoming production of P.D. Eastman’s timeless children’s book, Go, Dog. Go!  It is a fast-moving, comical adaptation by Steven Deitz and Allison Gregory, with music by Michael Koerner.  Performances run weekends starting September 29th through October 14th at Monroe Theatrespace in Hoboken.

This latest production from Mile Square Theatre (MST) brings the classic children’s picture book to life with the kind of inventive staging of plays for young people for which the company is known.  Both Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse in 2009 and The Garden of Rikki Tikki Tavi in 2011 received critical acclaim for their excellent acting and beautiful design.  Go, Dog.  Go! Continues this tradition of quality family productions.

“Every year, we dedicate a main stage slot to a play for kids”, say Chris O’Connor, MST’s Artistic Director. “We feel it’s important to offer good quality theatre to young people to let them gain an appreciation for theatre at a young age.  To go to the theatre as a family is such a great experience, too.”

Performances are Saturdays at 2pm and 5pm, and Sundays at 11am and 3pm at Monroe Theatrespace, 720 Monroe Street in Hoboken. Tickets are available online at (www.milesquaretheatre.org) or before each performance. Reservations are recommended. Tickets are $22 for adults and $12 for children and seniors.  Parking is available behind the theatre.
