Chicago, IL - Now it’s not just the kids who star in holiday family photos when Goodman Theatre hosts its 3rd annual “Pooch on Scrooge,” Saturday November 13, from 9am – 12am (170 North Dearborn Street). Well-behaved dogs-on-leashes are welcome to dress up for the occasion and pose for a “quick take” portrait with Ebenezer Scrooge of A Christmas Carol by celebrated photographer David Sutton. The Goodman suggests a donation of $15 for Season of Concern, a local organization which provides compassionate care to those in the theater community experiencing the effects of catastrophic illness. There is limited capacity for this event; reservations are strongly recommended. RSVP at www.GoodmanTheatre.org/PoochOnScrooge and be automatically entered to win a free sitting with David Sutton at Sutton Studios.

 Named “America’s Best Pet Photographer” by Forbes FYI, David Sutton has been photographing pets for over 15 years. His portraits of people and their pets have been featured extensively in national media including The Today Show and Animal Planet, as well as in the Chicago Tribune, Denver Post, Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, Chicago Sun-Times and Crain’s Chicago Business. He has also exhibited his work in a number of prestigious venues including Hermés of Paris and Takishimaya New York.

Each dog owner will receive a digital photo of their “Pooch on Scrooge,” perfect for holiday cards, witty e-mails and refrigerator doors. The hound in the best holiday attire will win a gift basket, compliments of Barker and Meowsky – A Paw Firm. Purchase raffle tickets at the event for prizes including a free sitting with David Sutton at Sutton Studios and tickets to Goodman Theatre’s 33rd annual production of A Christmas Carol.

 Goodman Theatre will admit only well-behaved, child-friendly, house-trained dogs on leashes. Owners should not bring aggressive/anti-social dogs or dogs that bite. The Goodman reserves the right to ask owners with poorly behaved dogs to leave the event.
