News   Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead to Play Brooklyn's New Workshop Theater The Brooklyn College Department of Theater will present Bert V. Royal's Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead Oct. 16-19 at the New Workshop Theater at Brooklyn College.

Directed by Jack Savage, the cast will comprise Adam Smith as CB, Lisa Anderson as CB's Sister, Lauren Adamkiewicz as Tricia, Samantha Fontana as Marcy, Rosa Fernandez as Van's Sister, Christian Marte as Matt, Andrew MacLarty as Beethoven and Jose Rivera as Van.

Dog Sees God, according to press notes, "tells the story of C.B. (Charlie Brown), a teen who has left his childhood fears and uncertainties behind. He's made the decision to fit in with his high school friends even at the expense of his natural inclination to challenge the standard way of looking at things. Life seems to be going along alright for him, until the unexpected death of his childhood pet beagle; that's when 'the rain cloud returns.' In this edgy comedy, the beloved Peanuts characters — now in high school — confront issues of sexuality, bullying, drug use and teen suicide."

The design team will include set designer Jennifer Stimple, lighting designer Rebecca Cullars and costume designer Jeanette Aultz Look.

Dog Sees God premiered in 2004 at The New York International Fringe Festival.

Show times are 7:30 PM Oct. 16-18 and 2 PM Oct. 18-19. The New Workshop Theater is located on the campus of Brooklyn College at 2900 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. Tickets are priced $5. For more information call (718) 951-4500 or visit http://depthome.brooklyn.cuny.edu/theater.
