    The story of “Nugget and Fang” comes to life in a colorful musical by national touring theater ArtsPower on the Dogwood Center’s main stage on Sunday, April 8 at 3:00 p.m. The musical is geared toward grades pre-K to three, and is adapted from Tammi Sauer’s 2013 book.

    Fang is a shark, Nugget is a minnow and they tell an endearing story of unlikely friendship.  At Nugget’s first day of school he learns that minnows are supposed to be afraid of sharks. Fang takes desperate measures to prove his friendship, but nothing goes as planned, until Nugget and his classmates find themselves in troubled waters.

    Author Tammi Sauer’s big-hearted characters are brought to life by actors with Broadway credentials. All of the music is original, written and created by the people at Artspower, and the show is put together by a traveling tour group of five actors.

    The national touring theater ArtsPower has been around since 1985, and has premiered 30 new musicals and dramas for children and families, led by founding co-directors and identical twin brothers Gary and Mark Blackman.
