Henry & Mudge

by TheatreworksUSA

Grades PK-3

Moving can be tough. Just ask Henry, who can’t find a playmate in his new neighborhood! Luckily, he’s got Mudge, a great big, 182-pound canine buddy! Everything is going great until Mudge does a trick for Henry’s cousin and not for him. Henry gets so upset he runs away and Mudge must follow Henry’s scent so he can reunite with his friend in this musical, based on the best-selling book series by Cynthia Rylant.
