Don’t miss this smash Broadway hit that once starred Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker. Full of laughs and physical comedy, this show will have audience members “howling” in their seats. It will also pull at the heartstrings of every dog lover. 

When Greg finds a dog named Sylvia wandering around Central Park, he can’t resist bringing her home.  But Sylvia soon reveals she’s no ordinary dog!   A need for attention gets out of hand when Greg’s wife comes into the picture. New York's Daily News said,  "I can only call it one of the most involving, beautiful, funny, touching and profound plays I have ever seen." Tickets are available on Facebook, ocoeetheatreguild.com or at the door for $12 to $15.
