About this show

The New Victory Theater continues to provide wonderful and exciting theater for kids with it's musical presentation of Runt. This musical, with giant storybook sets and 28 dog-sized puppets, follows the bittersweet adventures of an abandoned red pup on his quest for a loving home. Whether frolicking the beach in St. Tropez, scrounging for food in Paris, narrowly escaping the terrifying pound, or seeking revenge on some careless owners, our hero learns the importance of friendship and dignity. Fourteen actors play 60 different characters (both two- and four-legged!), from the tough junkyard dog that paints like Picasso to a bratty girl who loves her dog. Each actor is clothed and wigged to look like the human counterpart of their canine character, seamlessly blending the art of acting and puppetry.
