As Charlie Brown always says, “Good grief!”

This has been an uneventful school year for clubs and activities, so far, as a result of the pandemic.

But fear not! BPHS will be holding auditions soon for its spring play.

This year, auditorium manager, Jess Kovell, will be directing “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

Auditions will take place in the high school auditorium on Tuesday, March 16 starting at 3 p.m. with callbacks being held the following Thursday, March 18 at 3 p.m. Note that students auditioning must be available for both days and may have to stay as late as 6 p.m. for call backs.

Students who wish to audition must sign up before 2:30 p.m. on March 15 to ensure an audition slot. For quick access to the audition sign-ups, click this link!

While a seemingly odd choice for a play performed in the summer, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is a fun, heartwarming play that simultaneously follows a lot of COVID-19 restriction protocols.

“A Charlie Brown Christmas” has always held a special place in Jess Kovell’s heart, so the opportunity to put this show together with the hardworking students of BPHS was something not to miss.

After such a long time of limited or no theaters or gatherings, we need this experience.”

“It is a family-friendly, bring-the-community-together, feel-good production. After such a long time of limited or no theaters or gatherings, we need this experience,” said Kovell.

After much deliberation, it was decided that this play, as well as its June performance date, would be the best option for students to have the opportunity to perform this year, especially due to the limited casting for Bethel’s spring musical.

Due to COVID-19, cast and some crew positions will be limited so as to meet state restrictions. However, students can still be involved by helping out with costumes, script supervising, and marketing, as well as, set building, painting, and audio recording!

Don’t miss this chance to participate in an incredible opportunity and audition for “A Charlie Brown Christmas” by Charles M. Schultz, based on the television special by Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson, with stage adaptation by Eric Schaeffer and special arrangement with Arthur Whitelaw and Ruby Persson.
