When Rarely Done Productions started promoting its production of “Spooky Dog,” a raunchy parody of Scooby-Doo, they had to redesign their poster. As cast member Theresa Constantine explained, the poster was drawing kids and, “It is not a kids’ show,” Constantine said.

“Spooky Dog” features a butch Velma-type character, called Thelma, played in drag by Gennaro Parlato. A sexed-up "Daphne," called Tiffany, played by Rita Worlock in “a hot red wig from China.” And the dynamic duo of Scraggly and Spooky Dog (Josh Taylor and Billy Sweeney) don’t shy away from the high they really get from “Scooby Snacks.”

Rarely Done Productions opened “Spooky Dog” last weekend with two performances that sold out before opening night. The next chance to see “Spooky Dog” is this Friday, February 22 at 8 p.m. Dan Tursi directs the show.
