On March 3-5, the CCS Fine Arts Department presented four magical performances of the classic “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” Audiences were delighted watching these lovable Peanuts characters come to life through our talented fine arts students both on stage and backstage. Some crowd favorites were “My Blanket and Me,” Linus’ ode to his beloved blanket, “Beethoven Day,” Schroeder’s rocking tribute to the great Ludwig van Beethoven, and “The Baseball Song,” which tells the endearing story of Charlie Brown’s epic strike out. Of course audiences were also charmed by Lucy’s failed attempt to gain Schroeder’s interest in the song “Schroeder,” Sally’s philosophical musings in “My New Philosophy,” and Snoopy’s eleventh hour Fosse turned gospel number, “Suppertime.” This production was entered in the Tommy Tune Awards, and while the cast and crew are anxious for nominations to come out, they are all confident in the fact that no matter what happens, they put on a fabulous and successful show that brought glory and honor to our Heavenly Father.
“This has been such a special show. I came to this school four years ago with only the dream of one day putting on a big all-school musical. Now in our third year of producing musicals, I am constantly in awe of our students’ talents and commitment to putting on a great show. Some of these seniors started as freshman with me and now as seniors, it was very bittersweet to close our last big production together. I am so proud of all of the cast and crew and am grateful for the opportunity to serve at Cypress Christian School.”
