Thought it was a little hard to follow. Characters went between being humans and then dogs.

More Information


Based on the works of Jack London

Book and Lyrics by Jon Lipsky; music by Bill Barclay

Directed by Clay Hopper

Welcome to the ruthless world of the frigid Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush. This frozen, unforgiving land is inhabited by two types of beings: dogs and their masters. While they have come for fame and glory, dogs and humans must learn to endure not only the wilderness, but the loneliness too. Full of original songs, this riveting show pits man vs. animal in instinct, survival, loyalty, and humanity.

About the Ticket Supplier: Olney Theatre Center

Located just north of Washington, D.C. in arts-rich Montgomery County, Maryland, Olney Theatre Center for the Arts offers a diverse array of professional productions year-round that enrich, nurture and challenge a broad range of artists, audiences and students. One of two state theaters of Maryland, OTC is situated on 14 acres in the heart of the beautiful Washington-Baltimore-Frederick “triangle,” within easy access of all three cities.

An award-winning regional theater, Olney Theatre Center operates under an Actors’ Equity Association Council of Stock Theaters (COST) contract, one of only three theaters in the country to operate under such a contract.

In addition to its mainstage season, which emphasizes 20th-century American classics, new works, area premieres, reinterpretations of classics and musical theater, OTC offers a wide range of programs and affiliations including: National Players, America’s longest running classical touring company (since 1949), which performs for high school and college audiences in over 25 states; Potomac Theatre Project, which offers experimental and alternative plays that explore provocative and challenging human situations, ideas and visions; special school performances of mainstage shows; a free Summer Shakespeare Festival; and post-show discussions.
