Cast members from the Broadway Bound Vista Theatre Project’s summer production of Snoopy!!! Cast members from the Broadway Bound Vista Theatre Project’s summer production of Snoopy!!! Cast members from the Broadway Bound Vista Theatre Project's summer production of Snoopy!!! had their own version of an “out-of-town tryout” when they performed June 18 at the Carowinds amusement park.

The 17 performers sang and danced their way through five numbers from the show, earning smiles and applause from park visitors and compliments such as “Wow, those kids have some really great voices” from the Carowinds entertainment staff.

“Putting in the time and effort during rehearsals is vital to the success of any show,” said Dedra Daniels Mount, director and choreographer of Snoopy!!! “But there’s no substitute for performing for a live audience, and the opportunity to take our cast to Carowinds was the perfect way to test out the material before our opening in July. It was also a great way for the Snoopy!!! families to get to know one another and have a fun day filled with live shows and roller coasters!”

In addition to their performance on Carowinds’ Plaza Stage, the cast members had the opportunity to visit the park’s Planet Snoopy area and interact with their costumed counterparts.

Members of the Snoopy!!! cast who traveled to Carowinds were Ed Davis (Snoopy), Parker Mustian (Charlie Brown), Tucker Privette (Linus), Dani Wolan (Lucy), Mattie Mount (Peppermint Patty), Olivia Timmerman (Sally), and Isabella Wolan ( Woodstock), along with Catherine Cieri, Emily Coleman, Grayson Davis, Mallory Greene, Steffan Mayrides, Hannah Mount, Leighton Mount- Rossi, Quinnie Mustian, Shiann Parsons, and DJ Wolan. (Also in the cast but unavailable for the Carowinds performance are Leighton Ford, Shilah Lawson and Jessica Slapnik.)

Based on the world-renowned “Peanuts” comic strip, Snoopy!!! delights every audience with the quiet knowledge and wit of its characters. With a book by Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, Warren Lockhart, Arthur Whitelaw, and Michael L. Grace, this perfect show for all ages features music by Larry Grossman and lyrics by Hal Hackady.

Snoopy!!! is the second summer production of the Broadway Bound Vista Theatre Project, a non-profit community-based musical and dramatic performing arts organization created to present quality family entertainment and to provide opportunities for children and adults to develop talents in all aspects of theatre arts.

Helmed by Mount and musical director Shelby Sessler, Snoopy!!! will be presented July 22-24 and 29-31 in M Space located at 530 Lady Street in Columbia’s Vista.
