Star Players bring Peanuts characters to life in "SNOOPY!!!"
The Star Players, Inc. will present their spring musical production, "SNOOPY!!!" the Musical, Friday, April 25 & 26, 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 27, 2 p.m. at The Star Theatre, 121 W. Wyandot Avenue, Upper Sandusky, Ohio.
This family friendly show is remarkable, fantastic, and entertaining! Yes, Charles M. Schulz has done it again. "SNOOPY!!!," the musical sequel to "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown," deserves each of its three exclamation points. Based on the world renowned "Peanuts" comic strip, it delights every audience with the quiet knowledge and wit of its characters. Musical numbers include: The Big Bow-Wow, Don't Be Anything Less (Than Everything You Can Be), Where Did That Little Dog Go, and Daisy Hill.
"SNOOPY!!!" is under the direction of Scott Persinger, who also directed "Annie Get Your Gun," "Cheaper by the Dozen," and "Guys and Dolls" at the Star Theatre. The 30 year community theatre veteran has been involved in productions in Marion, Upper Sandusky, and Bucyrus.
Persinger brings together a wonderfully entertaining and experienced cast and production staff. Matthew Meade plays the title role of Snoopy, Kevin Orth as Charlie Brown, Brianna O'Dell as Lucy, Mike Cochran as Linus, Mandy Bour as Peppermint Patty, Emily Christman as Sally Brown, and Jo Ann Radwin-Zimmerman as Woodstock.
He also put together a crack production staff, including Music Director/Accompanist Jim Besch, who spent 12 years working as a free-lance accompanist/music director for regional theatre and off-Broadway productions. Matthew Meade serves as choreographer in addition to his role as Snoopy. Costumes and props are being handled by Marilyn Boles and Ashley Payton, lighting Gary McCreary, publicity Wayne Rowe, and set construction Mike Sprang. Playing bass guitar in the orchestra pitt with pianist Jim Besch will be Mark Stoneburner.
