Cannon Falls High School students will stage a musical, You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, Thursday through Sunday, November 14-17, at the CFHS Auditorium.
Thursday through Saturday shows are 7:00 p.m.. A Sunday matinee is at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $6 for adults, $4 for students and are available at the door.
Based on the comic strip "Peanuts" by Charles M. Schulz, You're a Good Man Charlie Brown follows a day in the life of Charlie (Matt Lockett) and pals. Those familiar with the comic strip will recognize Linus (Braxton Ulrich), Lucy (Hannah Brummund), Schroeder (Matt Breuer), Snoopy (Mary Franz), Sally (Mary Ann McCusker) and many others as they sing their way through Glee Club, a Baseball game, and Suppertime.
Tania Larson Legvold directs a cast of 18 students in the fall musical. Tania says people will not want to miss this show. "The kids are doing marvelously, the costumes are colorful and fun, and the set, constructed by Doug Anderson, is amazing," said Tania.
Marcia Jacobs and Ruth Legvold helped with Lucy and Charlie costumes. "I was quite particular in wanting the costumes to look as if they came right off the comics page," said Tania. "Other costumes are just as colorful and authentic looking. People who have read these comics will recognize the characters. Several of the girls are wearing wigs to assist in that authenticity. The boys will style their hair as closely as possible to their characters."
