Dogs Musical Opens with Adoption Events

The original holiday musical Dogs opens on the Mainstage Theater at Pheasant Run with adoption events by Rover Rescue from Aurora.

Dogs is an original holiday musical told from the dogs’ perspective and is a poignant and often tongue-in-cheek homage to Cats. It’s filled with fantastic songs, memorable pooches, and brilliant staging. With state-of-the-art costumes and make up and a set that will astound you, Dogs is a fun show for the entire family.

Dogs is the fifth original musical created and produced by The Sigman Brothers in the last five years and the third staged at the Mainstage Theater at Pheasant Run.

Mike and Jerry Sigman each bring a wide variety of talents and experience to the table. Mike has five degrees in music and has made a long career as a rock performer and song writer where he has established a strong reputation. Jerry was an opera singer, actor, writer, and sleight-of-hand artist known throughout the Chicagoland area.

Together they wrote several screenplays, but while their work generated strong interest, they didn’t want to move their families out of state. It was then Mike had the brilliant idea to apply their talents to transform one of their screenplays, Etude, into a musical for the stage. You could say that first show was the beginning of The Sigman Brothers. For both of them, the process felt like coming home.

Dogs is a show for dog lovers of all types and ages and a wonderful experience for the whole family this holiday season. Whether you have your own furry, four-legged friend at home or just love great musical theater, this story about life, loyalty, and love is sure to please. 

In keeping with the theme, Rover Rescue from Aurora will host an adoption event before every performance where you will have the opportunity to learn more about Rover Rescue and meet a furry friend who is up for adoption right in the lobby of the theater. Rover Rescue is a network of volunteer foster homes who do not have a central shelter, so this is a great opportunity to connect with them.

Patrons can also receive $5 off a Dogs theater ticket with a donation of pet food or essential supplies. Come help us support Rover Rescue!

Dogs will open on the Mainstage Theater at Pheasant Run Friday, December 21st and run through Sunday, December 30th with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are just $20 and Dinner & a Show packages are available for Friday and Saturday shows.
