FOR THE FIRST TIME Aucklanders will be able to take their dog to see a theatre show at The Basement this August.

DOG, by Ben Hutchison is a touching comedic tale about an old man’s grief for his recently departed dog, and in addition to its two-week season, Wolfgang Creative is hosting a one-off charity performance to raise money for the SPCA and to put the spotlight on animal companionship.

TV star Shavaughn Ruakere, along with Gareth Williams and Mick Innes are thrilled to perform to a canine audience in order to raise money for the much-loved charity.

SPCA Auckland Marketing and Fundraising Manager Rona Booth, says “We’re really excited to be involved in such an innovative event where pet owners can enjoy a night at the theatre with their whole family, including their canine family members. A huge thanks to cast and crew of DOG for choosing to support the SPCA.”

The one-off ‘bring your dog along to The Basement’ to see DOG will playThursday 21st August at 5:30pm. Entry is by donation. All proceeds will go to the SPCA. Places are limited so please contact info@wolfgangcreative.co.nz to secure a seat for you and your socialised dog!

DOG is a Creative New Zealand and Auckland Council supported production.

This theatre show has gone to the dogs (in a good way)!

Humans can still see the show as it plays at the Basement Theatre from August 19th to 30th.
