You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown

Exuberantly and professionally performed by Sanford Middle School 6th, 7th and 8th grade students, December 5 and 6, 2014.

Starring Sanford Student Actors & Technicians

Directed by Jeffrey Wells

Musical Direction by Anita Ruth

Choreographed by Trudy Monette

On December 5 and 6, 2014, more than 90 of Sanford's 6th, 7th and 8th grade actors and technicians inspired and entertained audiences with heartwarming, exuberant performances of the musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, a universal story about how finding our happiness and sharing it with others can shape who we are and where we want to go in life. Students rehearsed every day for eight weeks with professional artists and quality sound, lighting, sets and costumes, and that professionalism showed on stage and off! The school musical is one of the key ways in which Project SUCCESS helps students build confidence, gain new experiences, and learn more about themselves and each other through the power of theater.
