Connections: Friendship, Finding Happiness, Live Music

Indoor Shoes
A Charlie Brown Double Bill is performed in the round. The actors will be using the same entrances and exits as the audience. In order to alleviate any puddles and stones that may make their way into the theatre, please make sure your students have indoor shoes. There will be a designated area in the lobby to change and leave your outdoor shoes. (Slip on covers will be provided if indoor shoes are forgotten).
