Students to perform "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown"
St. Andrew’s students will present an adaptation of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” on Friday, Nov. 10 and Saturday, Nov. 11.
Students at St. Andrew’s School will present the adaptation of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”on Friday, November 10, and Saturday, November 11, at 7pm in the McCulloch Center for the Arts.
The production, based on the comic strip “PEANUTS” by Charles M. Schulz, was written by Clark Gesner in 1967. It brings to life Charlie Brown and the comic strip’s other beloved characters as they work through successes and challenges that all of us face.
Arts Department Head Joanne Fayan directed the production, collaborating with Tom Chace, musical director; Samantha Medeiros, choreographer; and Erin Meghan Donnelly, a costume designer who is from Trinity Repertory Company.
Thirty-two students are involved with the production: 12 actors, four musicians in the orchestra, seven backstage crew members, and nine students in set construction. The students have been working on the musical since early September.
This will be the first year that St. Andrew’s students host a third performance, a private matinee for middle school students from Paul Cuffee School and San Miguel School. In doing so, Fayan says she hopes to widen the opportunities in arts for all students in the area.
The musical comedy is free for audience members, but donations are welcome.
