'Dog Sees God' at Feichter
The Haywood Arts Regional Theater’s winter Studio Season’s second production “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead” takes audiences into the adolescent world of the Peanuts characters as reimagined by playwrite Bert Royal. The unauthorized parody became a break out hit in 2004 at New York’s International Fringe Festival and moved Off-Broadway. It won Broadway.com’s Audience Award for Favorite Off Broadway Production in 2006 and became a cult hit. The basic premise; CB and the gang, all with recognizable aliases, which made it possible for producers to skirt copyright laws, have grown up and are in the midst of all of the plagues of coming of age. The play is funning, and touching, but does contain some adult language so is not appropriate for all audiences.
The production is being directed by Holly Ann Harmon and will features Dwight Chiles, Art Moore, Sarah Lipham, Stephanie Crane, Sean Bruce, Daniel Wagoner, Caroline Lathrop and Hope Peterson. Any fan of the original comic will fine it an engaging idea to reimagine the familiar character a few years further on.
Seating in the HART Studio is general admission, but reservations are recommended because shows do sell out. The Feichter Studio is part of the Performing Arts Center’s back stage and seats just 70 people and is only three rows deep. The intimate setting has made the space a favorite for area theater goers. You can go in, grab a cup of coffee, and sit back for some amazing performances. To make reservations patrons only need to call the box office at 456-6322 and leave a message on the theatre’s answering machine. Tickets are also available on line at www.harttheatre.com.
“Dog Sees God” has performances at the HART Theater, 250 Pigeon St. in Waynesville on February 1 & 2 at 7:30pm and on and on February 3 at 3pm. Productions are often held over for a second weekend, if audience demand warrants or if inclement weather forces the cancelation of any performances. Patrons should call the theatre should weather become questionable at any time during the winter season. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for students to all studio Plays.
