PAWDEMIC IN PUPPY PARK, a FREE ALL-AGES show, premieres on YouTube Tuesday, Feb. 2, 5pm AZT, and will be available until February 14. Visit Tucson Fringe 2021 YouTube Channel to subscribe.
The dog park is normally a lively, noisy place, especially during the annual dog show. This year is different. The K-19 Pawdemic has kept most pets at home, wearing masks. Alexa gamely carries on trying to train her puppy clients to do tricks via Zoom but how to do a dog show with no dogs! Cortana wants to rig the contest so that her dog, Itsy-bitsy Mitzi, will win first place, but a stray mutt performs the tricks better than any other dog. Plus, he’s chasing everyone’s chickens and won’t wear a mask! So, Cortana hires Bounty the Dog Hunter to end the canine’s career, or else he’s sure to win first place!
This show, an adaptation of a live Active Imagination Theater show, was created by Old Pueblo Playwrights President John Vornholt, a Tucson playwright, actor, director, and best-selling NY Times author.
