North prepares for a new spring musical


Not only North, but all schools around the world, have faced challenges during the pandemic. This year, North will be showing “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” a spring musical that is meant to bring back the feelings of happiness and nostalgia.

The cast and crew are very excited to show what they have in store for this year’s musical, since they didn’t get the chance to last school year, due to quarantine.

The musical is a throwback to the Peanuts cartoon, with snippets of different scenes. The cast and crew have been working extremely hard to put this musical together with them having rehearsals four times a week. Lots of hard work goes in both on the stage and behind the scenes.

“A lot of people don’t understand how much work goes into it. There are a lot of things that people don’t think of, and so it’s just a lot to work on,” said Owen Leavitt, who plays the lead role, Charlie Brown.

“I watch students take skills from every class that they take and bring it together in a way where you might say you’ll never use that outside of school, and they use it. The Pythagorean Theorem got used to make a set of stairs, and I was like no way,” said Kelly Bott, production assistant.

“The director saw that we just need to have a little fun in our life right now because there is a lot of sadness happening. This musical is very lighthearted, and I think it was a good choice for having this musical this year,” Leavitt said.

“I think it’s a great energy in particular this show. I think everyone is really looking forward to something that lifts spirits and kind of is a classic story that everybody is aware of,” Bott said.
