Clockwise from top: Alex Pierdant, Ryan Snanoudj, Qalil Ismael, Skyler Cox, Ali Toia, and Lili Calitto perform in "BARK!"

The Santa Monica College Theatre Arts Department is pleased to present "BARK!" July 25-Aug. 3 at the Theatre Arts Studio Stage on the SMC main campus, 1900 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica.

"BARK!" reveals a day in the lives of the canine characters at a doggie daycare – from a dog's point of view. From the little puppy who yearns to bark like a real dog to the opera-singing poodle, this musical possesses the huge heart and playful joyfulness present in man's truest friends. Howlingly funny, fast-paced, and sometimes poignant, "BARK!" is a "must see" for all ages!

Composed by David Troy Francis and based on the book by Mark Winkler and Gavin Geoffrey Dillard, "BARK!" features lyrics by Gavin Geoffrey Dillard, Mark Winkler, and Bob Schrock, with additional lyrics by Jonathan Heath and Danny Lukic. The production is directed by Terrin Adair-Lynch, with music direction by Gary Fritzen.

Show times are 7 p.m. on Friday, July 25 and Aug. 1, and Saturday, July 26 and Aug. 2. Matinees are at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 26 and Aug. 2, and Sunday, July 27 and Aug. 3. There will be NO LATE SEATING.

Discounted tickets for children ($5 for ages 12 and under) must be purchased by phone. Tickets are $3 higher at the door. Parking is free on Friday evenings and weekends.
