Find out in this epic musical adventure featuring the hilarity and heart of beloved characters from Dav Pilkey, the award-winning and worldwide bestselling author and illustrator of Captain Underpants and Cat Kid Comic Club.


Dog Man: The Musical surpasses my highest expectations. It is the ‘Perfect Mash-up’ of memorable music, humor, and love,” said Dog Man creator, Dav Pilkey.


“We are thrilled to continue sharing the musical imagination of our pals George and Harold with family audiences on this upcoming tour,” said TheaterWorksUSA’s Executive Director, Michael Harrington. “We've seen that Dog Man: The Musical spreads joy – and slobber – wherever it goes! We cannot wait for families in Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, and Phoenix to make memories with us at the theater.
