For the Love of Dog


How do you really know if your dog likes you? Do you have any idea what they think or feel about you? Those questions and more are the subject of the world premiere of For the Love of Dog, a new comedy show penned by Bill Glasser opening July 15, 2023 at The Stage At Burke Junction. This “people-powered, dog-loving story show” is inspired by a real dog (who will be available for photos and interviews on select performances) and is directed by Elisabeth Nunziato, of B Street Theatre fame.


The show will delight audiences of all ages as they accompany Bags, a 169-pound therapy mastiff, played by the hilarious Nestor Campos, through his journey with three different owners in California.


Our lecturer and host for the evening is Scientist Joe, who will share his ground-breaking research on the real thoughts and opinions dogs have shared with him. Along the way you’ll meet Eva, Bags’ best friend, a German Shorthaired Pointer, played by the incomparable Fatemeh Mehraban who dreams of life and freedom beyond her backyard fence.


Ralphy, a pug mix, played by Braeden Harris, is Bags’ nemesis and arthritic roommate who teaches bags how to avoid trouble by sleeping and eating. And no therapy dog could go without their own therapist, Dr. Lov, a Rottweiler mix, whose excellent counseling and prescriptions, are a godsend for San Diego’s hardest working therapy dogs. It’s dancing, music, a day at the dog park, mealtime, and endless drool. Make a dog – sitting date to see this brand-new show at the 50-seat jewel box theater in the historic Burke Junction shopping center in Cameron Park! All ages welcome, freeway close Highway 50 at the Cameron Park exit, and always plenty of free parking.
