You're A Good Man Charlie Brown Debuts at Mission San Jose High School
by Mekala Raman
Mission San Jose High School's Universal Performers will kickoff this year's spring musical with "You're A Good Man Charlie Brown" based on the cartoon invented by Charles M. Schulz.
The play describes a typical day in the life of Charlie Brown, who must face the rigors of school, unrequited love, book reports and baseball games and features characters, Lucy, Sally, Linus, Schroeder and Snoopy.
The students at Mission are doing the Revival version of the play that was written in 1997. "This is not the Charlie Brown of 30 years ago, but a fresh, exhilarating show for a new generation," said director Lee Glover. Along with other changes, this version has more chorus numbers, which are also more complex than before. It also has a faster tempo and requires a lot more energy.
"I hope the community will come out to see the show and support the teens who have worked so hard to put it together. It is going to be a lot of fun...especially for younger kids," said Lori Stokes director of Star Struck Children's Theatre who had to step in at the last minute for Mission High School's drama teacher Anne Riley after she sustained an injury.
