‘You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown’ all good, no grief

The MC Rockville production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” was a sensational hit of humor, musicality, and the suspended reality of Charles M. Schulz that we’ve grown to love. The production, featuring six talented student actors, delivered spectacularly with antics, obsession and a good helping of childhood depression. The story follows Charlie Brown, his dog Snoopy and several friends as they deal with the harsh realities of being small children, pressures of games lost, heroes unsung and Snoopy’s grandiose dreams were delivered spectacularly with spot on costume choices, a set straight from the comic strips, and a beautiful arrangement from the orchestra. There were a few sound glitches, but nothing that truly detracted from the production. The actors deserve special mention for their sensational dance skills. The bottom line: the production was a great kickoff for the fall season at Montgomery College.
