“Dog Act” is a capstone thesis production by Liz Duffy Adams which features the 2018 Masters of Fine Arts acting candidates. The production, which will be presented on March 16 and 17, follows the traveling performer Zetta Stone, her companion Dog and her diverse theatre troupe in this post-apocalyptic vaudeville as they journey through the wilderness of the former Northeast U.S., heading toward a gig in China.
The performance evokes questions from the audience like, “Will they find it? Will their voices be heard? And Will they survive the journey?” Highlighting a year-long ensemble based endeavor of research and collaboration, the show, directed by Christina Traister, features graduate designs, along with fight direction, choreography and vocal coaching by cast members.
The 110-minute show has no intermission at Michigan State University’s Wharton Center for the Performing Arts Arena Theatre, 750 E. Shaw Lane, East Lansing.
Show dates and times are March 16-17 at 8 p.m., March 18 at 2 p.m., March 20-22 at 7:30 p.m., March 23-24 at 8 p.m., and March 24-25 at 2 p.m. There is a director pre-show discussion on March 18 at 1:15 p.m. and a post-show discussion on March 22. General admission is $15. Seniors and faculty are $13 and students are $10.
