The Skidmore Theater Department's Black Box production "Dog Sees God: Confessions of A Teenage Blockhead," written by Bert V. Royal, will premier in the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater Friday, March 2.
In this politically charged and provocative tragicomedy, Royal re-imagines the iconic Peanuts character as teenagers and transports them to high school. The play explores social issues many adolescents grapple with, such as bullying, drug use, eating disorders, harassment, homophobia, and desperate quests to discover identity and meaning.
The director of the production, Margaret Smith '12, describes the work as "a play which addresses under-represented social issues in a frank, entertaining, and unexpected way. By using the beloved Peanuts characters as a satirical device, playwright Royal makes ethereal issues tangible for a modern audience."
Performances are March 2 to 7. All shows are in the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater at 8 pm, except Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 pm. Tickets are $12 general admission and $8 for students and senior citizens. Seating is very limited, so reservations are a must. Call the Skidmore Theater Box Office at 518-580-5439 for tickets.
