UWA Theatre draws up cartoon spoof

Published 7:12pm Monday, March 11, 2013

The University of West Alabama Theatre, directed by Arthur Grothe, presents Spooky Dog and the Teenage Gang Mysteries on March 13-16 at UWA’s Hunt Annex. On Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, the play begins at 7:30 p.m. On Friday, the play begins at 7 p.m. with an uncensored presentation at 9:30 p.m.

Written by Eric Pilner and Amy Rhodes, Spooky Dog & the Teenage Gang Mysteries is an irreverent parody of Saturday morning cartoons—for adults only.

Missing from a starring performance at a creepy county fair, a pop culture icon (suggested by the audience) can only be located by this familiar gang of teen sleuths: a butch, blond frat boy, an even more butch brainy gal with a trusty flashlight, a hot-to-trot diva in a miniskirt, a spaced-out hippie, and a talking dog.

On a campy and comical quest to find their missing friend, they’ll face the ghost of a dead country singer, a not-so-psychic fortune-teller, and the sinister couple who run the fairground—but that’s not all.

Tickets are $10 for adults. The play is not intended for children under 16-years-old. UWA faculty, staff, and students are admitted free with proper ID. For more information contact Arthur Grothe at 205-652-3633 or agrothe@uwa.edu.
