LINCROFT: CHARLIE IN THE BOX

PAC-exterior

The students of the Brookdale Community College Theater Club bring the irreverent black comedy DOG SEES GOD to the stage of BCC’s Performing Arts Center, this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Looking back on it, Charles M. Schulz must have had some pretty well thought-out reasons not to have ever aged his classic Peanuts characters out of their frozen-in-time childhood moment — and with Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, the audience can see for themselves how the neuroses, personality quirks and phobias of Charlie Brown and his friends might have gotten the better of them in young adulthood.

Something of an antidote to You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, the rarely revived play by Bert V. Royal makes itself visible for three free performances at Brookdale Community College, September 11 through 13. A presentation of the school’s Theater Club, the 2004 “unauthorized parody” goes up at BCC’s Performing Arts Center on the Lincroft campus.
