A dog-eat-soup world

TheatreworksUSA has a children’s show planned for Jan. 26 at 10:30 a.m. at the Massey Theater at Greenwich Academy, where they will present Martha Speaks.

Presented by the Cowan Center, the story of this production is that of Martha, an ordinary dog until the day she ate a bowl full of alphabet soup. Something unusual happened because all those letters went up to Martha’s brain instead of down to her stomach and she became, literally, outspoken.

Life with a talking dog can be lots of fun for an amazing family and friends, including playing tricks on the pizza delivery person and teaching the pooch how to use the telephone, which comes in very handy when your dog is as smart as Martha. When she correctly answers a trivia question on a radio call-in show, she wins an all-expense-paid family vacation. But when the official award notice arrives in the mail, it contains Martha’s least favorite words: “No dogs allowed!” Will her family go on vacation without her?

Martha’s clever way with words saves the day in this “doggone” funny new musical based on the Martha Speaks series of books by Susan Meddaugh, published by Harcourt Mifflin. People can also watch the television series Martha Speaks on PBS Kids, recommended for children in grades Kindergarten through fourth.

The cost of the show is $25 per ticket.
