Being a Mom to 11 year old twins makes for a zany, unpredictable, yet richly rewarding life. Thank goodness for my wonderfully supportive hubby who keeps me grounded. I'm a writer, an editor and an online media professional. I write about pretty much anything that inspires me. I enjoy interviewing interesting people and sharing my thoughts on my family's experiences at various events and activities. I might also share a favorite recipe or two, particularly if it's something I've thrown together that turns out to be yummy! Outside of contributing to DFWmama.com, you can also find me at NorthTexasKids.com and over at my blog TheMomsJournal.com.

Go Dog Go! at Dallas Children’s Theater

Go, Dog. Go! - Dallas Children's Theater

Enjoy Four-Legged, Floppy Eared Friends at DCT Jan 24-Feb 23

Big dogs and little dogs.  Dogs in cars.  It’s a carnival of color and dance and song in Go, Dog. Go! playing Jan 24th through Feb 23rd, 2014 at DCT’s Rosewood Center for Family Arts.

In a series of rollicking vignettes, dogs of all shapes, colors and sizes travel by boat, car, scooter, roller skates and unicycle.  Among all the hustle and bustle, these floppy eared, four-legged friends even manage to slip-in some important life lessons.

P.D. Eastman’s book, “Go, Dog. Go!” is a family favorite that uses single-syllable words in rhythmic repetition for beginning readers, and honors the simplicity of the world around us.  It’s a classic book turned into a unique stage adaptation filled with music, physical comedy and wondrously loopy anarchy.

Pianist and composer B. Wolf will to play non-stop throughout, and in addition to the show’s score, adds her own unique, creative touches.  Costumed as Music Dog, Ms. Wolf creates a compelling and dynamic musical experience as she interacts casually with the action.

Join the party – a big dog party!  Enjoyed by ages 4 and up.

Opening Night Fun at Go Dog Go!

Attend the show on Friday, Jan 24th for extra fun one hour prior to the show.  Meet some very friendly registered therapy dogs from Paws Across Texas and enjoy their special presentation.  Plus, request your own balloon creation from a balloon artist.  Show related crafts, giveaways, FREE milk and cookies from Tiff’s Treats and one free show poster per family!
