Planet Ant Theatre presents a reboot of its 2014 original one-act horror spoof, The Dogman Prophecies, with a new prequel, Dogman Rising, in a “Dogman Double Feature”:
Written by Jon-Mathew Canniff, Jaclynn Cherry, Moni Jones, Clint Lohman & Jason Petterson | Directed by Jaclynn Cherry
"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: Michael Duprey, Nate Hudson, Moni Jones, Clint Lohman and Caitlin Shea.
Written by Jason Petterson & Shawn Handlon | Directed by Jason Petterson
"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.
