Dog Sees God by Bert V. Royal

Fairleigh Dramatics, FDU School of the Arts’ Student Theater Organization presents Dog Sees God featuring the kids you know and love from the Peanuts comic strip...Of course, much has changed since they were kicking footballs around Hennepin County, MN. In this dark comedy, the characters are older, wiser, and more impulsive! Charlie Brown now goes by CB, and we meet him just as his beloved dog, Snoopy, dies of rabies. We follow him as he questions the meaning of life and navigates adolescence with his pals. Have you ever thought about what Pig Pen would be like as a teenager? Here’s your chance to find out!

Fairleigh Dramatics productions are directed, acted, designed, and produced by FDU Students.

The Agency by Lia Romero

The Barn Theater at FDU School of the Arts presents its second commissioned play, The Agency, a comedy by Lia Romeo. The Agency tells the story of a temp agency that supplies its clients with fake family members and loved ones. It;s the perfect temp job for a recent college grad, but what happens when the lines between reality and the job begin to blur? And what if your client happens to be a famous pop star and you're hired to play his girlfriend? Tensions rise in this ambitious world where everyone is replaceable and everything is for sale — if you're willing to pay! Lia Romeo's play Reality, which won the Hot City Theater New Play Contest, had its first college production in the Barn Theater in 2016.
