Happy Medium to Present DOG SEES GOD, 3/15-30
The award-winning Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead by Bert V. Royal is described as an irreverent and poignant unauthorized parody in which the beloved comic strip characters are re-imagined a decade later as hormonal teenagers with serious issues.
When CB's dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone Goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group's bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits.
Our show will star Michael Underhill (Polaroid Stories, Heart & Dagger Productions/Happy Medium Theatre/Boston Actors' Theater) as the lovable, yet utterly confused CB (Charlie Brown). Michael has been hailed as one of "the young actors in Boston to watch" and we are elated that he is leading our production. Alongside Mr. Underhill, Joey C. Pelletier (The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, imaginary beasts) will portray the troubled and fragile Beethoven (Schroeder). The proclaimed "bad boy of Boston theatre" will soften his image for this heartbreaking role.
The show will also feature 6 very well-known names from the Boston Fringe community: Mikey DiLoreto as Van (Linus), Nick Miller as Matt (Pigpen), Lesley Anne Moreau as Marcy (Marcie), Lizette M. Morris as Van's Sister (Lucy), Kiki Samko as CB's Sister (Sally), and Audrey Lynn Sylvia as Tricia (Peppermint Patty).
