Henry & Mudge
Book and Lyrics by Kait Kerrigan
Music by Brian Lowdermilk
Based on the series by Cynthia Rylant
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 a great, big, slobbery dog – Mudge – 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?
