The Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department‘s 2017-2018 Mainstage Season resumes Wednesday, February 7, with Dog Act, by Liz Duffy Adams. Directed by Columbia College alumna and Theatre Department faculty member Stephanie Shaw ’92, MFA ’09, the play runs through February 17 in Studio 404 of the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Center, 72 E. 11th St., in Chicago’s South Loop.

In Dog Act, the world is a ruinous, lawless wasteland — but for vaudevillian performer Zetta Stone, that spells opportunity! Alongside her trusty Dog (a young man undergoing a voluntary species demotion), Zetta treks the sundered States toward a mythical land called “China,” where she hopes to perform for the King. But when the expedition is persistently derailed, it seems like the travelling duo will never reach their theatrical zenith. But as Dog Act demonstrates, even after the apocalypse, the show must go on!
Besides director Shaw, the show’s creative/production team includes Theatre Department faculty members Frances Maggio (costume design), Andra Velis Simon (musical direction), and David Woolley (fight choreography). The entire cast and the rest of the production/design team are students. For a full list of cast and creatives, click here.
