Major congratulations are in order for Corey Fogelmanis: the actor just announced his super exciting new role. Corey will be hitting the stage in a production the off-Broadway show, Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead in Hollywood. He took to Twitter to share the big news.
The play is loosely based on the iconic Peanuts characters, except this time around they're teenagers dealing with life, growing up, tons of personal and friend drama and all the craziness that comes along with figuring out who you are. Corey will be playing Van, who is based on Linus from the Peanuts crew
"The play consists of an entirely teenage cast, and tackles issues of LGBTQ tolerance and bullying through dark humor and some of your favorite childhood characters. A portion of all ticket sales will go to an LGBTQ-support organization," the official description of the show states.
Not only will Corey be tackling a role unlike he ever has before, but he'll be helping out other in the process. What a gem that one is. He's obviously best known for playing Farkle on Girl Meets World, but he has said before the theater is where his heart is. He got his start in stage productions and he one day hopes to make it to Broadway. After starring in Peter Pan and Tinkerbell: A Pirates' Christmas at the Pasadena Playhouse, it only makes sens that his first role post GMW is in a play.
"It’s been wonderful being back on stage and has been very creatively satisfying to spend time getting to know and find this character. I’m excited for the fans to see a different side of me and hopefully take something positive away from the story we get to share," Corey said in a new interview.
Similar to Cole Sprouse's new show Riverdale, Dog Sees God is a bit of a darker take on these beloved childhood characters too, so the show is recommended for ages 13 and up.
