Nov. 20, 2003 – St. John's Epiphany Theater Company decided some time ago that its winter production would be the musical "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown," in February.
In the last couple of weeks, it reached the decision to cast teen-agers in the roles of the cartoon characters.
Auditions are open to young people ages 14-19 and will be held Dec. 1 and 2 at 6 p.m. at the Coral Bay School in Cruz Bay.
Needed are young men to portray Charlie Brown, Linus and Schroeder; young women to play Lucy and Sally; and a sixth person to be cast as Snoopy. Candidates should be prepared to read from the script and to demonstrate their singing ability.
The theater company also is looking for behind-the-scenes volunteers to handle such jobs as stage managing, sound, lighting, set design and construction, props and makeup. Those interested in helping out in these areas also are asked to attend one of the audition sessions.
According to a release, "The play is an average day in the life of Charlie Brown — a day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine's Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening."
