Hey everyone, we have some exciting news! We're going to be back at the Hilltown Charter School in Easthampton for our summer drama workshop in 2018. It will run from July 30th to August 10th, with performances on the 11th and 12th. More info soon!
Well, not exactly new, but they're new versions of the feelings. Like the feeling of being appreciated, that's not new, but we're feeling it all the time, new versions of the feeling. Because people are listening to Shiprock & Anchordog music, reading the comics, seeing live performances, and giving us lots of wonderful feedback. I know people are wondering what's going to happen in Issue #3 of the Shiprock & Anchordog comic series, and so here's a sneak peek, at the bottom of our comics page!
We have lots of stuff brewing. First of all, spread the word, cyberbuoying is the opposite of cyberbullying. Cyberbuoying means lifting people up online.
Also, we are doing Shiprock Camp 2017, and it's our seventh year, and it's going to be amazing. There are still a few spaces, and you can read more about camp here, and you can still sign up using our contact form.
Camp will be at the Hilltown Charter School in Easthampton, which will be an awesome venue. We are so psyched to bring it back around to Hilltown, where we first rehearsed Shiprock & Anchordog: an Adventure Musical with a dozen Hilltown students back in 2011.
OMG so many new ideas... we cannot wait to tell you about all of them. We're working on new music, new recordings, new comics, and this summer we're doing a new musical-theatre camp program! More info soon, via the email-list and here on the site. Check this out:

I'm excited to show this picture of the sophomore album from Shiprock & Anchordog, which I'm taking with me busking this summer! Look for me on the streets of Northampton and Amherst and possibly other places, I'm open to suggestions.
Our Kickstarter campaign was a blast, and we totally hit and exceeded our goal by a good margin! Now we're working on the new CD...
New Rock Opera! Star Dogs
This summer the dogs are traveling to Planet Meow, and we'll celebrate their journey with a new rock opera! We'll be holding a two week workshop for kids, culminating in public performances of the new rock opera on 8/22 and 8/23 at 4pm at Laurel Park in Northampton. To sign up, send a message to Evan at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more info, click here to go to our "Workshops" page.
New CD! New Kickstarter!
February 24th, 2015
We have a Kickstarter in the works, to raise money for our new CD. The campaign is set to be launched on Saturday, May 2nd. Kickstarter is this great online fundraising platform for creative projects. From May 2nd to May 31st, you can actually go on Kickstarter and PRE-FUND the CD. Basically you pledge money to place a pre-order of the CD or get other cool perks, and the proceeds will pay to make the CD. It’s like a bunch of fans pool their resources to give us a GRANT to make the CD, and we still get to keep our rights to our creative work! What a cool stunt!
Hello everyone! 2015 is going to be an exciting time for Shiprock & Anchordog. Plans are underway for another summer workshop at Laurel Park, and our 5th musical theater production. We have a new story-album in the works, a full-length about a monster who wants to fit in. In the spring of 2015 we will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to help fund its production, so stay tuned!
Hey everyone, this is the new Shiprock & Anchordog site! We have the same domain name (www.shiprockandanchordog.com) but a nice redesign. Issue #1 of the comic is uploaded in the comic section, and we're uploading Issue #2 as we finish it, one page at a time! We've added a bunch of new songs to the music section, and we think you'll really like them. Check out the new stuff!
