'Dogman2: Wrath of the Litter' plays in Frankfort

(Continued)

Local talent includes Old Town Playhouse and Riverside Shakespeare veteran Tom Cilluffo as Hank’s nephew, Jeshen, and vocalist Miriam Pico, who performed the theme song, “Run Like Hell.”

Regular-admission “sneak previews” take place Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Garden Theatre. Friday’s screening will be followed by a Q-and-A with Brauer, Saturday’s will be preceded by a 1 p.m. showing of the film that started it all — the original “Dogman.”

In honor of its subject matter, area animal shelters and rescue organizations will collect dog and cat food and cash donations. They’ll also sell calendars and Dogman2 T-shirts in the theater lobby.

Brauer said he is working with the Vogue Theatre in Manistee to show the film there. He also expects it to make a return to the State.

And yes, there is a “Dogman3” on the horizon.

“My brain is spinning with new ideas for the next generation of these things,” he said. “If it happens, the next one’s going to be World War III. I want to keep ramping these things up.”
