The students of RULH Elementary presented You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!, on November 18 & 19. A cast of 38 students in Preschool through 4th grade taught us what happiness was all about.
The revised version of the original 1968 production features Charlie Brown, Lucy, Schroeder, Linus, Sally and the lovable Snoopy. Additional roles were added to showcase the talent that comprises the RULH student body. From the showstoppers of “Beethoven Day” and “My New Philosophy” to the series of vignettes, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown! proves that we’re all just a kid at heart.
