Kids all around the Hoboken school district are humming upbeat songs and fidgeting in their seats, waiting to get up and dance. An event of great propositions is coming to town. It’s bigger than a newly proclaimed holiday called “Beethoven Day”...bigger than the highly anticipated kick of a football....bigger even than a child’s undying love for his blanket. It’s the show You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, coming to the Hoboken High School Theatre.
Following the successful run of the high school’s production of Footloose, the program closes the school year with yet another high-energy musical. The cast, made up of students from grades 1 through 10, shows the theatre program’s popularity among elementary, middle and high school students and the great talent the district has to offer. With only a couple of weeks of rehearsal remaining, the cast and crew are all very excited to perform the show, opening at the beginning of June.
Charlie Brown is a show about the ups and downs of life in the Peanuts world, as well as the quirks and traits of six beloved cartoon characters from Charles M. Schulz’s famous comic strip. Almost anyone can relate to Sally’s anger over a bad grade or Charlie’s hopeless longing for the little redheaded girl. With Lucy singing about furry trees and Snoopy fighting off the Red Baron, the show will have audiences on their feet and roaring with laugher.
You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown is a musical for all ages and will appear on stage at Hoboken High School (9th and Clinton St.) on June 1st at 7PM, June 2nd at 2 PM & 7 PM, and June 3rd at 2 PM. Tickets are $7 for general admission, $5 for students, and $3 for senior citizens.
