Specially adapted from the 1967 film, Disney’s 101 DALMATIAN, KIDS! Includes your favorite Disney tunes including “Cruella De Vil” and the catchy jingle, “Kanine Krunchies.” It is based on the 1956 children’s novel by Dodie Smith. The story was adapted for the stage by Marcy Heisler, with music by Brian Smith, Dan Root, Martin Lee Fuller, Mel Leven, Randy Rogel, and Richard Gibbs; Lyrics by Marcy Heisler, Brian Smith, Dan Root, Martin Lee Fuller, Mel Leven, Randy Rogel, and Richard Gibbs; and the music for the show was adapted and arranged by Bryan Louiselle.
In this classic Disney story, Dalmatians Pongo (Timothy Koenning) and Perdita (Addison Hopkins) happily raise their puppies – Lucky (Grayson Daugherty), Patch (Layla Gonzales), Penny (Olivia Powell), and Pepper (Allie Mitchell) – in a cozy London home with their pets Roger (Vincent Barber) and Anita (Ellie Kelso). When their sinister neighbor Cruella De Vil (Morgan Glynn) and her not-so-evil sidekicks Horace (Colby Clift) and Jasper (Ruby Monson) dognap the puppies, it is a race to rescue the puppies before Cruella turns them into a fur coat. Keeping the action moving in the intense puppy rescue race are other cast members (playing multiple roles) Sable Clift, Raegan Fontenot, Addison Gonzales, Maggie Kelso, Gabby McAvoy, Mia Munoz, Ava Reyes, Kai Spence, Sky Tacconi, and Willow Tacconi.
The production staff includes Chesney Garza, Stage Manager, Willow Tacconi, Asst. Stage Manager, Tate Burchfield, Backstage Crew. ETC’s Student on Stage programs are under the management of Jennifer Daugherty who is also the production choreographer. Trish Fowzer is the production musical director.
