Director Kendra Norton Dando says the show is based off the smash hit movie, with some rousing songs and dynamic show-stopping dance numbers sprinkled in.

I think the musical numbers bring to life the big emotional moments of the story. Those moments really just get more fun when you have that musical component.

Dando says in addition to the cast, they also had to find a few dogs to play pet companions for the main characters.

We did a call for dogs and had a number of people bring their dogs for some doggy auditions. We had our performers meet the dogs to see who clicked and found some great ones. We really love having these dogs as part of our show.

Dando this isn't the first time they've used dogs in one of their productions and the cast have adjusted well to their furry co-stars.

She says the hard work from their cast has really shown over last week's performance and everyone is eager to get back onstage this weekend.

Tickets for the show range between $28-$48 depending on seating. Showtimes will run Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
