Dogtown The Musical
Sep 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MST
A musical comedy inspired by the real-life world-famous Yukon story of Trevor the dog.
“Dogtown the Musical” is a full-length musical featuring catchy songs, satirical humour, and moving moments, inspired by the true Yukon story of Trevor the dog. From 2008 through 2012, Trevor’s story was a mainstay of the Yukon media. The local papers were seldom without letters to the editor, articles, and updates on his latest court battles. The facts of the true story were summarized by the Yukon Supreme Court in its 2010 decision titled Humane Society Yukon vs. City of Whitehorse (2010 YKSC 66). Yukoners were split between ‘one more chance’ and ‘death to Trevor’. Roy Ness and Grant Simpson thought any story that generates such conflict, love and angst would make a splendid musical and provide a golden opportunity to satirize the age-old human/dog relationship.
