Eastern to Perform "Dog Sees God"
Willimantic, CT -- Students in Eastern Connecticut State University's Theatre Program will perform "Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead" at 8 p.m. on March 18 and 19 in Shafer Auditorium. The public is invited. Tickets are $3 for Eastern students and $5 for the general public.
In "Dog Sees God," the main character, C.B., questions the existence of an afterlife after his dog dies from rabies. Since his friends do not provide any comfort or solace for his loss, C.B. turns to another peer whom his friends used to bully. Their new friendship pushes teen angst to its limits as the play provides a perspective on pressing social issues today, such as teen violence and drug use.
The performance is directed by Shane Kegler, a senior theatre major from Mansfield Center. Keri Dumka, a junior theatre major from Burlington, is the assistant director. The cast includes Shannon Delahanty, a junior English major from Wallingford; Hilary Osborn, a junior theatre major from Columbia; Max Loignon, a senior theatre major from Cheshire; Kerri Panciera '10, a theatre major from Killingworth; Joey Dias '10, a theatre major from Colchester; and Scott Kegler '06, a fine arts major from Mansfield Center.
