LOCAL residents can relive childhood memories of Charlie Brown and see our young performers grace the stage with Jasmine Phipps from Corlette and Jack Twelvetree from Medowie in the upcoming production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” at the Young People’s Theatre in Hamilton.
Charlie Brown is being played by 19-year-old Jack Twelvetree.
Charlie’s gang, which of course includes Snoopy, get up to many antics such as chasing rabbits and singing with Schroeder.
Sally, played by 15-year-old Jasmine Phipps, discovers a new philosophy.
The gang will have you singing along, laughing at their antics and tapping your toes.
Directed by Riley McClean and Cassie Hamilton, the production is for people of all ages.
Whether you are an old Peanuts fan or just embarking on a new adventure, this show will surely appeal.
Jasmine and Jack are not new to the stage.
Jack was in YPT’s production of The Crucible to sell out houses, and Jasmine has been in many shows starting at the tender age of eight in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
She has been in many productions since then, including Godspell.
You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown runs from 9 June to 23 June with both matinee and night shows.
Tickets are on sale now for $19 and can be purchased online at www.ypt.org.au or call 49614895.
