Canyon Lake Community Theatre (CLCT) presented the adventures of the Peanuts gang in its all kids production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” last weekend at the lodge.
The production is a fresh approach to the all-time 1967 classic, based on the comic strip by Charles Schultz. The cast performed three shows.
“Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us,” said Produc

Charlie Brown: Austin Back and Ryan Stetson; Lucy: Emily Garvito and Taylor Pigeon; Linus: Alex Gulati and Matt Thomas; Sally: Abigail Vecchione and Ella Gotoski; Schroeder: Dylan Siler; Snoopy: Alyssa Frederick and Emilia Pepe; Peppermint Patty: Frankie Montenegro; Marcie: Helena Devere; Patty Ann: Sierra Rupe; Freida: Zoey Carroll; Pig Pen: Luke Thomas; Violet: Emma Dore; Peggy Jean: Aaliyah Lopez; Shermie: Tanner Gray; Franklin: James Mertens; and Ensemble: Ashlyn Devere, Massimo Pepe, Dylan Stewart and Tavin Vecchione.
