Schulz - Book Music and Lyrics by Clark Gesner. This is the first musical since the school merger of the Mercer County and Harrodsburg Independent schools.

Great shots of the show. My husband played Snoopy in his high school production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown in Toronto, once upon a time. I didn't know him then, so I've only seen pictures. How precious shots like that become.

Your daughter looks like a great stage manager.
