"The Dogman Prophecies" tells the story of Billy Becker and his quest to find the Michigan Dogman and… kill him. Billy blames the mythical half-man/half-dog for the murder of his boyhood pet. Along the way, however, Billy gets caught up in the mayhem of a military experiment gone awry, which threatens his quest for justice — and potentially the lives of every person on the planet.
Featuring: Jaclynn Cherry, Michael Duprey, Nate Hudson, Moni Jones, and Caitlin Shea.

"Dogman Rising" is an original one-act comedy inspired by and prequel to "The Dogman Prophecies." "Dogman Rising" follows the story of Rex Lewis, host of a small podcast that chronicles sightings of the Michigan Dogman. During one such podcast, a mysterious fan calls in with a tip that sends Rex on a journey across the midwest to learn the truth about the origin of the Dogman. The journey takes a dangerous turn when Rex encounters resistance from a group of zealots who do not want the truth about the Dogman revealed.
Featuring: Nick Crestwood, Will Curry, Halina Matt, Andi Maziarz, Jon Miller and Sarah Wilder.
