Charlie Brown and his friends rock the H Street Playhouse.
By Julie LaPorte
No Rules Theatre Co. opens its second season with You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, playing through October 17 at the H Street Playhouse. Directed by Co-Artistic Director Matt Cowart, Charlie Brown presents a charming series of comic strip vignettes book ended by longer stories and songs full of whimsy and delight.
Co-Artistic Director Joshua Morgan led the talented and energetic cast as the philosophical Linus, with Kristen Garaffo as the precocious Sally, Sean Maurice Lynch as soulful Schroeder, Chris French as the operatic Snoopy, Carolyn Cole as the brash Lucy and Augie Praley as the charmingly insecure Charlie Brown.
Taylor Williams led the band, comprised of Amanda Grossman, Jeremy King, Kirk Kubicek and Eliot Seppa. They set up in the lobby and effortlessly rocked out the iconic Charlie Brown music that immediately brought a smile to everyone’s face.
From baseball games to book reports, Snoopy’s dinnertime to the group rehearsing a song for the school musical, Charlie Brown and his friends are able to take everyday experiences and pull back the curtain on the human emotions that are common to us all.
This young theatre company is truly fantastic and they have a bright future ahead of them in this town. Make the time to see Charlie Brown – you won’t be disappointed. For more information and ticket information, visit No Rules Theatre Co.
