Dog parents will get a chance to help the Humane Society of Indianapolis while enjoying a night out on the town with their four-pawed friends. The Indiana Repertory Theatre is launching its inaugural ‘Ruffs & Tails’ event Owners and their furry pals can meet other canines, nibble on human and doggy treats and get their picture taken wearing Shakespearean ruff.
The event takes place opening weekend of IRT's 2014-2015 season with The Two Gentlemen of Verona and their furry, tail-wagging cast member, Crab. Dogs are welcome to enjoy Three Dog Bakery goodies with flavors they’ll love including vanilla, peanut butter and carob. Think your dog is the most adorable in Indiana? Win over the crowd and have your dog’s picture taken in Shakespearean ruff to show off his or her theatrical side. Pictures of each future star will be taken and a specialty Three Dog Bakery gift basket will be awarded to the most ‘liked’ dog photo on the IRT’s Facebook page.
Learn more about the Humane Society and bring donations for their Humane Society Wish List. Donations include an entry to win a class from Bark Tutor School for Dogs. With special code, “IRTdog,” $2 per ticket of the Wed, Oct. 1, 7:30 pm performance and the Sun, Oct. 12, 5pm performance will be donated to the Humane Society of Indianapolis.
