You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown 0

On today’s show, Ed starts by talking about The Dress.  The confusing phenomenon of a picture taken of a dress; where 75% of the population sees the dress as a white and gold dress and 25% of the population sees the dress as a blue and black dress.  It’s a very rare instance of the internet making something a way bigger deal than it is, but also missing the part of the story that was absolutely crazy.

Susan Schobel, director of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, calls in.  This is her first time directing a performance, but the play is a great choice and she has a great cast of young actors.  Opening night is next Thursday at 7pm at the Alley Theatre.  There will also be performances on Friday at 7pm, Saturday at 2pm, and Saturday at 7pm.  Find more information or reserve tickets at www.burtwoodschool.com.

Ed wraps up the show with some calls about The Dress and he previews some upcoming events.
