Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead
By Bert V. Royal
Directed by Steve Noll
This "unauthorized parody" features the Peanuts gang - all grown up! Bert V. Royal's sublimely rancid little comedy begins with CB’s account of the day he had Snoopy put to sleep, after which things for the introspective “CB” go downhill. Still trying to understand life's darker meanings, still plagued with his endless identity crisis, CB talks to his gang of friends to find answers to his many questions. What he finds is a world that is inhabited by a comic strip parade of misfits: a missing pen pal, an abused pianist, a pyromaniac ex-girlfriend, two drunken popular girls, a homophobic jock, a burnt-out Buddhist, and a drama-queen sister. Together, these factors all contribute–Good grief!–to this modern tale of teenage angst.
Cast members include Nick Kaprelian as CB (Charlie Brown), Amy Stantis as CB’s sister (Sally), Nathan Figueroa as Van (Linus van Pelt), Edric Johnson as Matt (Pigpen), Adam Williams as Beethoven (Schroeder), Ginger Swart as Marcy (Marcie), Kay Dixon as Tricia York (Peppermint Patty), and Leah Isabel Tirado as Van’s sister (Lucy van Pelt).
