Eleven children who attend Top of the World, El Morro and Thurston Middle Schools make up the cast of “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” No Square Theatre’s holiday performance.
The show, with performances Dec. 9-11, and 16-18, is directed by Joe Lauderdale with music direction by Roxanna Ward and choreography by Ellen Prince. The show is appropriate for everyone 5 or older.
“These kids were excellent and had the audience fully engaged and singing along, laughing, and grooving to the iconic tunes,” said Caroline Rustigian Bruderer, mother of cast members Luke and Mason, who depict Charlie Brown and Shermy, respectively.
The rest of the cast includes Lula Buckle, Cassidy Morgan, Will Briggs, Allie Swellen, Alfie Cant, Noah Doody, Grace Gilchrist, Lauren Kimball and Raquel Temesvary.
Free parking is available at Laguna Beach High School, near the theatre in Legion Hall, 384 Legion St. Patrons can come early and enjoy dinner and drinks al fresco before the 2 or 7 p.m. curtain. Purchase tickets in advance from $10 at nosquare.org.
