March 9–17, 2024
Music and Lyrics by David Abbinanti
Book by Jill Abbinanti-Burke
Inspired by the book The Perfect Dog by John O’Hurley
Sam, a twelve-year-old perfectionist, is searching for a flawless dog to enter in the town’s dog contest. Unable to find a canine that measures up, Sam must resort to training the family dog Max, who is more interested in chasing balls than obeying commands. In the end, Sam and Max learn that there is no such thing as perfect, but there is such a thing as being perfect for each other. Humans of all ages will love this hilarious and heartwarming musical about perfectionism, friendship and acceptance of others. Ages 4+

Crafted from the actual testimonies of Rochester-based Holocaust Survivors, CenterStage Theatre and the Louis S. Wolk Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester commissioned this new play to put a human face on this important time in history. A cautionary tale on the risks of normalized hate, this inspirational and uplifting play ensures that the voices of our Survivors will never be silenced.
