The City Dog and the Prairie Dog

Second Stage
Book and lyrics by Diana Grisanti | Music by Emiliano Messiez | Directed by Iliana Lucero Barron
Bilingual Show (English/Spanish) | Espectáculo bilingüe (inglés/español)

November 2 – 24, 2024

Paloma is a prairie dog pup in a prairie dog town. She’s not a huge fan of prairie living, though — the boring cuisine, the scary predators, the annoying owls. So, when her cousin from the city comes to visit, Paloma jumps at the chance to leave the open plain behind. Will Paloma adjust to life in a metropolis of 22 million people (and who knows how many rodents)? Will she survive without her dog town behind her? Will they survive without her? Featuring lots of singing, dancing, and audience participation, The City Dog and the Prairie Dog (El perro de la ciudad y el perro de la pradera) is a bilingual story about exploring the world, learning new things, and maybe, just maybe, coming home again.

Paloma es una cachorrita de perro de la pradera en un pueblo de perros de la pradera. Sin embargo, no es una gran fanática de la vida en la pradera: la cocina aburrida, los temibles depredadores, los búhos molestos. Por eso, cuando su primo de la ciudad viene de visita, Paloma aprovecha la oportunidad para dejar atrás la llanura abierta. ¿Se adaptará Paloma a la vida en una metrópolis de 22 millones de personas (y quién sabe cuántos roedores)? ¿Sobrevivirá dejando atrás su pueblo de perros de la pradera? ¿Sobrevivirán ellos sin ella? Con muchas canciones, baile y participación del público, The City Dog and the Prairie Dog (El perro de la ciudad y el perro de la pradera), es una historia bilingüe (inglés/español) que trata acerca de explorar el mundo, aprender cosas nuevas y tal vez, sólo tal vez, regresar a casa.
