'DOG SEES GOD' TO BE PERFORMED FEB. 26-28 IN K-STATE'S PURPLE MASQUE THEATER
MANHATTAN -- The theater program at Kansas State University will present the play "Dog Sees God" at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 26-28 in East Stadium's Purple Masque Theater.
The play is being performed, directed and produced by K-State theater students. The performance is for mature audiences.
"Dog Sees God," written by Bert V. Royal, offers an intriguing twist on the characters from the "Peanuts" comic strip. Royal transforms the well-known characters into high-school age youth. The play highlights many adolescent struggles, including acceptance and homophobia.
Tickets are $4 for students and children and $7 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased at the McCain Auditorium box office from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. weekdays at the K-State Student Union's Little Theater box office, or by calling 785-532-6428 during McCain box office hours.
K-State students involved in the production include:
Allan Saylor, senior in management, Hutchinson; Kelly Burdette, sophomore in theater, Leavenworth; Ann Goodson, freshman in pre-professional secondary education, Manhattan; and Samantha Rigsby, sophomore in pre-professional secondary education, Milford.
From Topeka: Kristen Conklin, freshman in theater; Bridget Lachowsky, senior in theater; and Kyle Leuschel, freshman in theater.
