Imagine a world where every meal is the most amazing you’d ever had. One where coming back from the post office is a reunion on the scale of ‘An Affair to Remember’, where every parting is overwhelmingly tragic and every joy transcendental. A world where love is always unconditional, and forgiveness is as easy as a pat on the head.

Imagine that world, and you might be somewhere close to knowing what it feels like to be a dog.

On March 13th through 22nd, Kent Stephens STAGE FORCE returns to the STAR Theater to celebrate the wonder of all things canine by throwing them a party: DOGS AND LESSER MORTALS, a cabaret-style evening of song, stories and scenes as exuberant as a Bichon Frise dancing for a piece of bacon.

Revel in the sheer, unadulterated joy of sniffing things. Harness your heartstrings to a rescue mission saving at-risk pups from an overcrowded kill shelter, and learn about the love that overcomes communications barriers, the taunting of squirrels, and even death itself. Whether you’re a long-standing dog lover, desperately allergic, or one of those odd people who choose the company of cats, you’ll find something to love in this show.

For DOGS AND LESSER MORTALS, STAGE FORCE has partnered with the NHSPCA and the Cocheco Valley Human Society, two organizations who put heart and soul into finding loving new homes for rescued animals. Those interested in adopting will have a chance to meet eligible pets-in-need on site at the Kittery Community Center, and rescue pups will lend a hand to introduce the show.

DOGS AND LESSER MORTALS features the talents of Jamie Bradley, Christine Dulong, Andy Fling, CJ Lewis, Jessica Miller, and Ryan Salvato, with original music by CJ Lewis.
