“It helps kids see what is great about poetry!” – Says Me Says Mom

Thank you to Says Me Says Mom for coming to see Love That Dog and for their awesome review!

The great thing about the show is that it takes the children in the audience on the same journey as the boy in the book. It helps them to see what is great about poetry and inspires them to write poems of their own.

The star of this one man show, Derek Christopher Murphy does a really great job in the role. He is very good at capturing the innocence and joy of youth which helps the children in the audience relate to him better. His enthusiasm for the role is so infectious that even older children and adults can’t help enjoying themselves.

It is just an all around sweet and entertaining show for people of all ages.

— Jeryl Marcus, Says Me Says Mom on Love That Dog

Featuring the poetry of Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams, and Walter Dean Myers, Love That Dog is a contemporary story about discovering the power of your own voice.  Based on the book by award-winning author Sharon Creech.
