Two Dumb Dogs: The Adventures of Ferdo & Floof

by Edith Weiss

This comedy is a funny story with lessons that include discovering self confidence, using your brain, and recognizing that following the rules is sometimes a good thing. Ferdo and Floof are two not-very-bright dogs. Tired of listening to their owner Roger, Ferdo and Floof decide to run away and seek fame and fortune on their own. Despite the warnings of a wise old owl, they head into an enchanted forest. There they encounter a cursed Prince, a wicked Queen, a beautiful poodle, and the legendary Dog Shouter. Ferdo and Floof must rally their brainpower to save the day and find their way back home. Two Dumb Dogs runs July 8th through July 12th and July 15th through July 19th with performances at 11:00a.m. in Amazon Park.

Directed by Jacob Rorem
