Fun for the Family: ‘The Perfect Dog' Debuts Tonight

Looking for a fun, family-friendly event this weekend? Head to The Centre Theater in Norristown for the family musical, The Perfect Dog.

The musical is part of National Dog Show Month in Philadelphia and was adapted from John O'Hurley's book by the same name.

O'Hurley hosts the dog show each year. He's had the gig since the show started in 2002.

The Perfect Dog musical debuts Friday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m.  Kids can bring a blanket and get treated to free popcorn, cookies and juice.

Saturday's performance is in the afternoon and if you come an hour early at 2 p.m., you get to meet and hang out with adoptable dogs from Mostly Muttz Rescue.

The performance starts at 3 p.m.

Sam, a 12-year-old girl, is the central character of the show. She's a perfectionist searching for a flawless dog to enter in her town's dog contest. The moral to the story is: there's no such thing as perfect, but there is such a thing as being perfect for each other.

Tickets are $10 each. Get them at the door or online.

The Centre Theater is located at 208 DeKalb Street, Norristown, Pa., 19401. [directions]

And don't forget -- The National Dog Show gets taped next weekend out at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center and is then broadcast Thanksgiving Day on NBC. Get more info on the Nov. 19 & 20 events and tickets right here.
