WUJH presents ‘Snoopy’

The West Union Junior High performed their autumn musical, “Snoopy,” in October. “Snoopy” is a coming of age tale about a group of kids growing up in a world full of adults. The kids learn to deal with their problems through various coping mechanisms. Each problem, however, always seems to reflect on Snoopy. Snoopy has grown a large ego over the years as he counsels the other characters through their issues. Snoopy does not realize, though, that what comes up, must go down. His ego will soon be deflated when his story is rejected from a magazine.

Because of the high levels of interest among the talented students in the junior high, the musical had a double cast. In Act I, the cast was as follows: Hannah Blythe as Snoopy, Braxton Blanton as Charlie Brown, Lindsey Taylor as Peppermint Patty, Michaela Harding as Lucy, Grant McCarty as Linus, Riley Thompson as Sally, and Savannah Allen as Woodstock.

The Act II cast was as follows: Raegan Faulkner as Snoopy, Andrew Sapp as Charlie Brown, Anny Shupert as Peppermint Patty, Madison Fulton as Lucy, Alex Grooms as Linus, Alexis Phipps as Sally, and Brody Hazelbaker as Woodstock.

Mr. Neil DeAtley and Davina Cooper were the directors while Sarah White (senior) and Coal McClanahan (junior) were the Assistant Directors. Mrs. Nancy Schneider was the accompanist.
