BY JUDY THOMPSON –
You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown opened to enthusiastic reviews at the Ouachita Little Theatre this past weekend. The production will conclude this weekend with performances at 7:30 on April 24 – 25 and 2:30 on April 26. Regular admission is $10 with students and seniors 60 and over paying $8.
The show is best described as an average day in the life of Charlie Brown, but is made up of little moments picked from all of the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine’s Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day.
OLT once again is partnering with American Artisans to present a “Girls’ Night Out” on Saturday, April 25. Tickets are available at Arvest Bank and include reserved seat for Charlie Brown and a light dinner at American Artisans. Serving begins at 5:30 PM. The meal will consist of smoked turkey salad on a croissant roll with broccoli/cauliflower salad and a mini mandarin orange pie. Water, tea, and coffee are included. Ticket cost is $20/$18.
Since You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is such wholesome entertainment, children are encouraged to attend. Because of this, the Sunday matinee will be Family Day with a child admitted free with each paying adult. In addition, there is no charge for a child three and under who sits in an adult’s lap.
Cast for this musical includes Brandy, Chris and Bailey Benner; Paulette and Zane Sherrer; Kelsey Wiggins; and Brandon Zacarias. Director is Judy Kropp and Assistant Director is Scott O’Rear. For further information, call 243-0186. All performances are open to the general public.
