UW-River Falls Masquers presents ‘Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead’

December 4, 2015

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Masquers will present “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead” Dec. 8-12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanford Syse Theatre in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building. The public is invited.

“Dog Sees God” is not just a palindrome. This raunchy new take on the classic Peanuts comic strip sheds some light onto real-life struggles that teenagers face every day.

“Don’t expect the sweet and light-hearted Peanuts that you’re used to. This show can get pretty intense and racy,” said Director Kendra Yarke, a senior double majoring in marketing communications and theatre. “I’m most excited for how audiences will react to the sad, funny, and surprising moments in the show. There are moments that make me laugh out loud, gasp, and sometimes even tear up.”

The cast includes Danielle Bebus, of Forest Lake, Minn., as Tricia; Kyia Britts, of Andover, Minn., as Marcy; Travis Dow, of Minneapolis, as Van; Corey Fern of Shakopee, Minn., as CB; Danielle Formanek, of Webster, as Van’s sister; Francisco Grande, of Cusco, Peru, as Matt; Jack Groskreutz, of Apple Valley, Minn. as Beethoven; and, Christine O’Toole, of Iron Ridge, as CB’s sister.

Audiences should be ready for taboo topics, adult language, and an all-around good time at the performances.
Tickets are $10/adults, $8/seniors, $5 for others under 18 (one free ticket per student with UWRF ID available at the Box Office window only). The Box Office, located in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building, is open Dec. 7-11 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m. on performance days.

Tickets can be purchased in person or by phone at 715-425-3114.
