U.Va.’s Heritage Repertory Theatre Brings Performances of ‘Snoopy!!!’ to the Stage

‘Snoopy’July 20, 2004 -- Heritage Repertory Theatre completes its six-show 2004 season with the opening of Snoopy!!! in the Helms Theatre. Snoopy!!! is the sequel to You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, one of HRT’s biggest hits in the past 10 years, with the spotlight this time shining on everyone’s favorite beagle.

The book is by Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, Warren Lockhart, Arthur Whitelaw and Michael L. Grace. Music is by Larry Grossman and lyrics by Hal Hackady. “I’ve come to realize that Snoopy!!! is actually a better show than Charlie Brown – better script, better songs,” says director Ken Lambert, a veteran New York and Charlottesville actor who has also directed shows for Live Arts and Off-Stage Theatre. “It’s less well-known only because the other show was first.”

Brandon Ellis plays Snoopy, Andrew Frace is Charlie Brown, Lindsay Northen is Peppermint Patty, Caylin Campbell is Sally, Heather Mayes is Lucy, John Kras is Linus, and Ashley Blasland is Woodstock. Kate Roehr is the show’s choreographer. Mary Elizabeth Forbes is music director, scenic design is by Alli Robbins, costume design is by Gweneth West, lighting design is by Nic Lawton, and Vikram Kirby is the sound designer.

Ken Lambert adds, “while children will certainly love Snoopy!!!, adults shouldn’t make the mistake of thinking it’s a ‘children’s show’ – it’s not. It’s overflowing with sophisticated humor, wisdom and great music which makes it truly (no kidding) a show for everyone.”

Snoopy!!! opens July 20 for 20 performances in the Helms Theatre. Evening performances begin at 7:30pm and there are three 2:00pm matinee performances: July 24, July 31 and Aug. 7. Tickets are available at the Culbreth Theatre box office at 109 Culbreth Road, open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call (434) 924-3376 and at
