One local man can take the statement You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown personally. As the lead role in the Vernal Theatre’s opening production of Charlie Brown, Andrew Bentley says the reaction of kids in the audience has made this production something he will never forget. “I love the way kids have reacted to the show in all the audiences,” shares Bentley. “With the Peanuts movie coming out last year, a new generation of kids have become familiar and interested in these characters...I love that this show has the power to speak to kids.” Bentley used his own son as an example who after watching a scene of Snoopy dealing with a cat, meowed every time Snoopy came on stage to see what the classic puppy’s reaction would be. Bentley also recalls the “little red-headed girls” in the audience during the first two nights of the show who tuned in to Charlie Brown’s inner dialogue centered around impressing that little red-headed girl. “It was fun seeing how they reacted when they met me after the show,” says Bentley. “Both were very shy. It was so sweet.” So far audience members of all ages have loved this local production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The final shows are tonight, Friday and Saturday night at 7:00pm at the historic downtown Vernal Theatre. Visit www.vernaltheatre.com for tickets and more information.
