A Good Man

Watch the video

Once upon a time there was an organization called The Sunshine Children's Theatre Company. It ran for some time in Davis, California, but the founder, ms. lin McElroy moved on, leaving the actors with a small bank account, and no direction....and a desire to do their own version of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown."

And so they decided to do it on their own.  Jeri was the director, Ned was the lighting and set designer, Paul played Charlie Brown, Tom was Schroeder and David was Linus and their friends played the other roles.

I was never so proud of those kids as I was on opening night of this show that they did entirely without adult assistance.  It was a damn good show!

This is Jeri's introduction, and the opening number.

Wow! That was a great production and they did it all on their own!

Awesome! The more theatrically inclined kids in my building (including myself) were ALWAYS trying to put a full show together! But we never would have been able to pull that off! good for them!
