Martha was an ordinary dog until the day she ate a bowl full of alphabet soup. Something unusual happened: all those letters went up to Martha’s brain instead of down to her stomach. And she became literally outspoken! Life with a talking dog can be lots of fun… You can amaze your family and friends, you can play tricks on the pizza delivery person, and you can even teach your pooch how to use the telephone! Which comes in very handy when your dog is as smart as Martha. When she correctly answers a trivia question on a radio callin show, she wins an all-expense-paid family vacation. But when the official award notice arrives in the mail, it contains Martha’s least favorite words: “no dogs allowed!” Will her family go on vacation without her? Martha’s clever way with words saves the day in this doggone funny new musical based on the delightful Martha Speaks series of books by Susan Meddaugh, published by Harcourt Mifflin. 

Watch the television series “Martha Speaks” on PBS Kids.
