RRCC to Produce Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead
by Bert V Royal

LAKEWOOD, CO - The Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) Theatre Arts and Dance Department will present Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, by Bert V. Royal onFebruary 23, 24, 25at 7 PM at the RRCC Theater.The show is directed by Kevin Snyder. DOG SEES GODis presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing theDramatists Play Service collection. (www.dramatists.com)

Kevin Snyder had this insightabout the play: “Between daily threats of physical violence, phobia of queer culture, and a constant feeling of depression and existential dread, it can feel like little has changed for the youth of America in the 20 years since DOG SEES GOD was written. While other comedies from the early 2000s have quickly become dated, Bert V. Royals unauthorized Peanuts ripoff has remained relevant all the while in an almost unfortunate sense. However, as the trials and tribulations of American school culture have found a way to clingon and even evolve, so too has the sense of hope and humor that keeps all the misfortune from making life unlivable. Though theatre rarely offers its viewers a straight answer to the complex themes it presents, DOG SEES GOD asks all the right questions, and offers enough comedy and moments of tenderness to distract from what life feels like when you lose your best friend.”
