Drama club brings “Peanuts” characters to life
Marathon High School’s Drama Club’s rendition of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” pleases the crowd with singing, dancing, and popular, well-known “Peanuts” characters including Snoopy. The student’s enthusiasm and hard work paid off for this play, especially since the small cast of six will be inducted into the International Thespian Society later this month. Lined up for May 1 and 2 will be “Seussical Junior” with a cast of 35. MHS alumnus Xavier McKnight was in town over the weekend for the first rehearsals to help out with the choreography.
The opening number of “Charlie Brown” brings in the singing and dancing by Hannah Gracy, Mackenzie Helms, Claire McCarthy, Ariana Patterson, and John Galjanic.
Videographers Abby and Annie Gracy were ready to catch all of the action when the show started.
