"Dogpark: The Musical" opens at Oregon Cabaret Theatre on Friday, but a preview performance is presented tonight.
The musical written by Jahnna Beecham, Malcolm Hillgartner and Michael J. Hume was inspired by a newspaper announcement about a singles meeting at the Ashland Dog Park. The idea grew into what promoters call "a comical romp that has had audiences howling."
