Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, by Bert V. Royal
Stupdendous! One of a kind! A Miracle of the Stage!

Oh boy! I don't even know where to begin with this production! First of all, let me say that I have seen several productions of Dog Sees God in my time as a World Class Theater Critic, but none have compared to the hilarity and grit that these students brought to this performance. The casting was superb. Director Daniel Tracy really knows what he's doing. Each actor played their parts so well, you'd think they were those characters in real life! The relationships were defined to perfection, or blurred in the case of CB and Beethoven.

Speaking of them, what brave actors to take on those roles at a conservative military college in North Georgia! Beethoven, played by the daring and dashing Shawn Jacoby, was especially captivating as this is one of the few times I've seen a production where the actor actually play the piano parts. On the opposite end of the character spectrum, Kris Conklin really gave his character Matt a special brand of douchebaggery that I overheard his castmates call "Conking Out." Whatever it is, he plays the part of the villain to perfection, and the climactic scene between him and Beethoven brings chills to the bones.

Honestly, all the actors did so well it would take eons for me to describe each of their accolades. The scenes between Marci (Alexandra Styles) and Tricia (Brittany Stepp) were absolutely hilarious, and they act exactly how I imagine the characters from the strip would act. The scene with Van's Sister (Jo-Z- Le) is very heartwarming. Tanner Thomas plays the perfect stoner and Hannah Moore rounds out the cast as the bratty little sister.

All in all, this is one of the best performances I've seen at a school of this size, and certainly the best performance I've seen of Dog Sees God. It was so good that this, dear readers, will be my last theater review. These young people have inspired to put down the pen and get back on the stage where I belong! Next week I have auditions for both Annie and Sexual Perversity in Chicago!

Wish me luck!
