The Theater Project of Union Township, N.J., a leading incubator for rising talent and a showcase for New Jersey artists, will present an encore performance of Dog Sees God streaming live on Zoom, May 20-22 at 7:30 p.m.
A play by Bert V. Royal and directed by Dennis DaPrile, Dog Sees God features performers from New Jersey as well as throughout the East Coast, Toronto, and California. It is the second in the theater’s Showcase Series designed to provide opportunities to young actors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“During the current theater lockdown, we’re trying to provide these talented young professionals an outlet for that talent and a great chance to gain valuable experience,” said The Theater Project Artistic Director Mark Spina. “It’s a win-win for everyone. The actors perfect their craft and the public gets to see the future stars of entertainment.”
Dog Sees God is a dark comedy involving drug use, eating disorders, bullying, rebellion, and sexual identity. It is designed for ages 16 and up.
“These are some of the issues facing high school, college students and young adults,” said DaPrile. “They are universal themes many young people can relate to.”
To improve the virtual experience, the play uses some key features of a souped-up version of Zoom (known as OBS-Zoom) which allows the production staff to provide sound effects and virtual backgrounds for the actors who are performing from home.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by visiting The Theater Project Presents: Dog Sees God – Events (onthestage.com). Purchasers will receive a link one hour before the performance.
