Ann Arbor, Mich. - Henry and Mudge, the musical based on Cynthia Rylant's best-selling children’s books about a boy and his dog, will play at the Michigan Theater this Sunday, May 4, at 1:30 PM. This 60-minute musical is recommended for audiences age 4 and up.
Moving from the city to a new house in the country can be tough – just ask Henry. He misses Annie, his cousin and best friend, and can't find a playmate in his new neighborhood.
Luckily Mom and Dad buy him Mudge, a great, big, slobbery dog with whom he can share all kinds of adventures. It looks like Henry and Mudge will be best friends forever, until Annie arrives for a visit. Will Annie come between a boy and his dog? Can a kid have two best friends?

After a brief New York City-area tour in spring 2006, Henry and Mudge began its national tour in September 2006 and enjoyed a five-week engagement at Off-Broadway's Lucille Lortel Theatre from December 2006 through January 2007.
Tickets are $12 for Michigan Theater members and $15 for the general public. You can purchase advance tickets at ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster outlets, as well as in-person at Nicola’s Books in Ann Arbor.
