I WANT A DOG! THE MUSICAL
A New Musical Comedy in One Act
Music and lyrics by Jamie Lawrence, book by Gillian Eames
Additional lyrics by Gary Forman*
I Want a Dog is about one day in the life of the Starrs family. Early in the morning Grandma calls to tell Mom that she fears that Grandpa has the dreaded disease Scanopadeecephalimm! The family is catapulted into a race against time to get to Grandma and Grandpa’s house. They pile into the car and it’s not long before unexpected events throw the Starrs off course and out of their comfort zones.
Even as everyone’s nerves are unraveling, 5-year-old Nick, the middle Starrs child, sticks steadfastly to his dream of saving an abandoned dog and giving it a home.
They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well...it takes a family to take care of a dog.
