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.”
