Auditions have been announced for Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead by Bert V. Royal, the third script in Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette's 2008-2009 staged reading season. They will take place Tuesday, January 27, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Civic Theatre office at 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.
Director Laurie Russell is looking to cast 4 men and 4 women. Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script.
When CB's dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation, his sister has gone Goth, his ex-girlfriend recently has been institutionalized and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of his 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 is both haunting and hopeful. Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead contains strong adult language and content.
The reading will take place February 3 at 7 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre. There will be a brief discussion immediately following. It is a Pay What You Can event.
