Fri Feb 25, 2022

Brazosport College Theatre’s newest production, “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead” will open to the community on March 3. The show will run for four nights — Thursday, March 3 through Sunday, March 6 — with all performances beginning at 8 p.m.

The play will be performed at the Seidule Theatre on the Brazosport College campus.

“Dog Sees God” is a quirky, unauthorized parody of the Peanuts characters inspired by Charles Schulz.

When CB’s dog dies from rabies, he begins to question the existence of an afterlife. A missing pen pal, an abused pianist, a pyromaniac ex-girlfriend, two drunk cheerleaders, a homophobic quarterback, a burnt-out Buddhist and a drama queen sister offer him no help. However, 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.

Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful.

Cast members include Carrie Baker, Madalyn Campbell, Christian Mayo, Teresa LeCompte Skalski, Chris Smith, Kavan Vanhal and Damen Wyman. The play is directed by Michael McIntosh, while Shannon Averett is the costume designer. 

“Dog Sees God” is rated R for adult content.

In addition, the performance on Friday, March 4, will be a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Straight Alliance (LGBTQSA) night, and a talkback, led by Dr. April Sikorski, will immediately follow the performance.

Although the play is being offered at no cost, tickets are required for all performances and can be purchased through a link at Brazosport.edu/theatre.
