In another first for Santa Catalina School’s theatre department, the cast and crew staged their fall musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, outside.
After a year of virtual productions, the theatre was determined to bring back live performance for the school community. Holding the musical outside was the best way to ensure audiences could safely enjoy the show amid COVID-19 concerns. The whimsical set was constructed in front of the library, and Sullivan Court was redubbed Sullivan Stage.
Based on the beloved Charles Schulz comic strip, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown explores life through the eyes of Charlie Brown (Audrey Avelino ’22) and his friends in the Peanuts gang. The revue of songs and vignettes found Charlie flying a kite, writing a book report, playing baseball, and learning that he has a lot to be happy about. Along the way, Snoopy (CC Shaw ’22) spent quality time on his doghouse, Woodstock (Elisabeth Gage ’22) enjoyed some exploits, Lucy (Jenna Tarallo ’22) pined after Schroeder (Ashley Yang ’23), Linus (Alix Detrait ’22) clung to his blanket, and Sally (Charlotte Juge ’23) found a new philosophy.
Congratulations to the cast and crew on a fun, unusual, and charming production!
