SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — The Santa Barbara City College Theater Group is showcasing “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” at the Garvin Theater.
Directed by Katie Laris, this play earned a 2015 Tony Award.
It’s told from the perspective of a 15-year-old boy, Christopher Boone, who describes himself as a “mathematician with some behavioral difficulties” living in Wiltshire, England. He seeks to uncover the mystery behind the murder of his neighbor’s dog.
“The show is inspiring, it’s funny and deeply touching,” supporting actress Clare Carey said. “It tells the story of someone who against all odds discovers his own power.”
The cast consists of 12 individuals, ranging in age from 16-year-old lead Daniel Sabraw to some supporting characters in their seventies.
“People should definitely come out to see this show because it’s a beautiful story with compelling characters,” Sabraw said.
The curtain goes up tonight at 7:30 p.m. The play runs Thursdays through Sundays until March 14th. Tickets are $26 with lower rates for seniors and students.
