Auditions set for “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead”

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. 

You must be at least 18 to audition. While the setting is high school, the show will ideally be cast using young adults.Characters (And their ‘Peanuts’ counterparts):CB (Charlie Brown) Saddened over the death of his dog. Questioning his sexuality and social status

CB’S SISTER (Sally) Constantly changing personas ranging from goth to thug to hippie

VAN (Linus) A teenage stoner with a thing for CB’s Sister

MATT (Pig-Pen) CB’s best friend , a jock, a germophobe and a homophobe

BEETHOVEN (Schroeder) The school outcast, the product of an abusive father

MARCY (Marcie) A party girl and Tricia’s sidekick

TRICIA (Peppermint Patty) The self-professed “pretty” and “popular” party girl

VAN’S SISTER (Lucy) Institutionalized for setting the Little Red-Haired Girl on fire, mellowed out on Lithium
