Auditions for Dramashop’s “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead” by Bert V. Royal will be held on Saturday, January 19 at 12:00 p.m. and Sunday January 20, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. at Gannon University’s Schuster Theatre, 620 Sassafras Street. This production will audition as a part of the “cattle call” auditions for the Schuster Fringe Festival (For information on other productions auditioning that day, click here).
An “unauthorized parody,” “Dog Sees God” takes a tongue-in-cheek look at what the Peanuts gang might look like as high schoolers. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, rebellion, sexual relations and identity are among the issues covered in this drama.
