Ten fifth and sixth graders led audiences on a journey to find hope and happiness with their production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” on March 15 and 16. Rossman students and parents were joined by children from two local preschools for the musical based on the Peanuts comic strip.

“These young performers have worked very hard to bring Charles Schultz’s characters to life,” said director Anna Blair in her directors’ note, “and I believe they have brought great talent, great effort and most of all, heart to these delightful friends from all of our childhoods.”

The COCA (Center of the Creative Arts) Theatre Residency Program at Rossman enables fifth and sixth grade students to learn the basics of acting and theatrical production on a weekly basis with professional artist-instructors. Participating students learn about the theatrical art form and develop skills and confidence as they experience the rewards of teamwork.
