Student Directors Tackle One-Act Plays - Video Promo
What happens when beloved comic strip characters Charlie Brown and Lucy suddenly age 10 years? “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead,” a one-act play being performed by UW-Oshkosh students, explores just such a situation.
"Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead" takes a comedic look at the lives of Charles Schulz’s famous Peanuts characters as seniors in high school. Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and Pig Pen are back, but dealing with a whole new set of problems including sex, drugs and personal identity.
The play, directed by Martin Prevost, is one of three shows being produced by students in the UW-Oshkosh theatre program. “Throwing Smoke” and “Slow Brick on a Stale Day” will also be performed under the direction of student Adam Boucher.
All performances are almost entirely student run. Costumes and sets are designed and built by students with support from department faculty.
The performances will take place March 11-13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Frederic March Experimental Theatre. Ticket prices are available through the theatre box office.
In the video, student director Prevost talks to reporter Katie Holliday about the play and how it may change how people perceive Schutz's creations.
