HOUSTON – Sept. 20, 2016 – Spring High School’s Lion Players Theatre Company will open their 2016-17 season with the celebrated characters of Charles Schultz’s comic strip as they present the classic “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” in four public performances Sept. 22, 23 and 24 at 7 p.m. and Sept. 24 at 2 p.m. There will also be eight private performances for Spring ISD’s first- and second-grade students. All performances will be located in the Performing Arts Center at Spring High School, 19428 I-45 North.
“This production represents Charles Schultz at his best: Schroeder and Lucy at the piano, Charlie Brown and Lucy at the psychiatry booth, Linus with his blanket, Snoopy with his supper dish, and the whole gang at the baseball game. Hilarious comic sequences are animated by high-energy action, creating non-stop entertainment for adults and children alike,” said Director Mike Doggett.
Presented as a non-musical adaption in one act, Spring High’s production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” stars Chris Saenz and Joaquin Alfredo Olivera de la Vega as Charlie Brown, with Rose Sanchez and Kriste Bennett as Lucy, Jesse Gonzalez and Matthew Vanderford as Schroeder, Cole Mackenroth as Linus, Lydia Herreth and Vanessa Albizuri as Sally Brown, and Esther Harris and Gabriel Saenz as Snoopy. The cast is rounded out with an ensemble of actors, including Leanna Hughes, Jaylon Speights and Lucian Chavez. The production is directed by Mike Doggett, assistant director Katie Butler and designer and technical director Kathy Gallas-Beyer.
