Art Dog

The Yocum Institute for Arts Education presents its youth stage play "Art Dog" at the Boyertown State Theatre on April 6 and 7.

"Art Dog," a live stage show for young audiences is the new theater show coming to the Boyertown State Theatre on April 6 at 11 a.m. and April 7 at 2 p.m.

“After a successful November performance of Elves And The Shoemaker by the Yocum Institute, we were anxious to have the Yocum children’s theater group return for its latest show, ‘Art Dog,’” said Shannon Anthony, State Theatre manager.

Featuring live music, zany chase scenes and fun for the whole family, the adventures of a canine superhero will come to the stage.

By day, Arthur is a mild-mannered museum guard — by night his alter ego, Art Dog, is a mysterious artist who makes the city his canvas. However, when Leonardo Dog Vinci’s Mona Woofa goes missing from the Dogopolis Museum of Art, Art Dog is the prime suspect! Not to be deterred, our hero paints his way out of a jail and collars the thieves with paint strokes. While the town applauds his heroism and celebrates his artistic brilliance, the only thing still at large is Art Dog’s true identity.

Based on the children’s book by Thacher Hurd, tickets for the show are for sale online at or at the Box Office the day of the show. A Meet the Cast and Photo Op with complimentary refreshments will be available after each performance.
