The Los Alamos Little Theatre announces the cast for “Dog Sees God” includes Stuart Rupprecht, Holly Robinson, Jacinta Lestone, Zachary Brounstein, Page Ramsey, Brian Trujillo, Beth Wysocki and Patrick MacDonald.
The play runs Jan. 13-28, with shows at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and a 2 p.m. matinee Sunday, Jan. 22.
“Dog Sees God” play opens with the main character dealing with the death of his beloved beagle and follows him as he seeks resolution through interactions with his sister and friends. The play features characters who will be familiar to many audience members, now in high school and dealing with a range of difficult issues, such as rebellion, bullying, drug use, suicide and homophobia.
“‘Dog Sees God’ contains strong language, mature subject matter, dark humor and bold statements of sexuality — things commonly overheard in the hallways of high schools everywhere,” Director Ken Milder said. This is a play that brings to light the real issues that are found in all high schools.”
LALT will host a panel discussion of these issues in partnership with the Los Alamos Public Schools following the matinee performance Jan. 22, Milder said. The panel discussion will be open to all community members, whether or not they attend the matinee performance.
Audience members will find occasion to laugh within this dark comedy, especially as they learn how the characters have left behind their old idiosyncrasies in unexpected ways, Milder said.
The LALT production is performed in association with Dramatists Play Service. The play is not suitable for audiences under 16 years of age.
LALT is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has been bringing theatrical productions to the Los Alamos community for more than 70 years.
