HENRY — River Valley Players is excited about its upcoming presentation of “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown”, brought forth by director, Mark Nowakowski.
This show will be presented in a non-traditional setting with the cast members performing on the floor amidst the audience. Mark, originally from Peru, now lives in Tonica, and is the pastor of the United Methodist Church for the Tonica, Lostant and Richland parishes. He has a long history in community and regional theater, partaking in practically every aspect of the theatrical experience from backstage to acting and directing.
Nowakowski is a multi-instrumental musician and a wonderful vocalist. He first introduced himself to River Valley Players when he auditioned for “White Christmas,” accepted the role of Bob Wallace and was a hit on our stage. Due to his knowledge of theater and his contagious enthusiasm he was asked to join the board of directors which he graciously accepted.
“You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown” will be presented at St. John’s XXIII Center in Henry. Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8, and Saturday, Sept 9, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10.
