More about Mop Dog

Mop dog BW


Objects are transformed and the ordinary becomes extraordinary in the mischievous world of Mop Dog. This new production by the recently formed, local company, WonderStruck Theatre Co., is best suited for all ages and is performed at the Children’s Museum of La Crosse.

 Delightful puppet dogs, four actors and a jazzy musical score composed by Luke Thering bring a whimsical world to life: a janitor’s mop transforms into a romping dog, plastic bags become birds and shadows come to life. The story inspires audience members to be playful and see potential in everything.

 Mop Dog is also selected to be part of the Whimsical Worlds series at Open Eye Figure Theatre in Minneapolis, MN from April 22-23.

 Running time of the show is 50 minutes. Please email WonderStruck Theatre at to reserve tickets by email. They can also be bought with cash or check at the front desk of the Children’s Museum of La Crosse. $8 for children, $10 for adults. Children 2 and under are free.
