A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum by the Stephen Sondheim, to be directed for KCP by Arnold Meister.

Look for auditions at the end of October.

Dog Sees God; Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead
March 30 – April 15, 2018
Good Grief! Our favorite comic’s kids are now in high school in this comedy by Bert Royal, directed by Lori Benkert. Written soon after the Columbine shootings, this play could have been lifted right out of today’s headlines. Strong language and adult content. Drug use, sexual identity, bullying, rebellion, teen violence and suicide careen toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful. And, yes, we did say it’s a comedy.
R-rated; not for everyone.
