DOG ACT, Andrew Ruthven, director
Liz Duffy Adams’ Dog Act is a post-apocalyptic vaudeville comedy in which Zetta Stone and her companion Dog, a man who has undergone a voluntary species demotion, travel through a dangerous world on their way to “China.” Rehearsals will begin February 28, 2022, opening March 26, 2022, and closing April 16, 2022 with a possible week extension to April 24, 2022. The role of Rozetta Stone has already been cast.
Dog – 20s to 30s. Human by birth, dog by choice. His dog behavior is minimal. This is not a case where an actor is playing an animal. Playing an instrument is a plus. (i.e. guitar, ukulele, fiddle, saxophone, etc.)
Vera Similitude – 40s – 60s. A “gray-haired” woman. The villain of the piece. Manipulative and misleading. Vera must “perform” vocally, but does not have to be very good.
Jo-Jo the Bald Faced Liar – “Late Teens” – 20s. A semi-feral teenaged girl. Smarter than she may appear due to a reclusive nature.
Coke & Bud – 20s to 30s. Scavengers: savage grown-up Lost Boys. Peter Pan meets Mad Max, and Peter was a Shakespeare professor. Coke is the Alpha and Bud is the Beta/Alpha wanna-be. While neither is particularly bright, Bud is the simpler of the two.
