I've seen a few shows at this theater in the past and I have to say that this is the most fun theatrical viewing experience I've had in a long time. Granted, I've never seen this show before but this production is GREAT. I'm going back this week and taking my grandson.

The set is sparse but very cute, the costumes are adorable and the talent is amazing.

Talent highlights were Courtney Bozaich as Sally, who drew they eye with her amazing facial expressions everytime she was on stage and Tate LeClair as Linus - stealing almost every scene he was in. Sara Wells Martin has a belt on her that I believe really could bowl a person over if it came out of her mouth directly to your face as it did Charlie Brown in one scene. Unfortunately, Stephen Rice's voice was lost from time to time during his song, buried underneath the chorus going on around him. Dustin Smith was very entertaining as Snoopy and his Suppertime number was house rousing. I didn't really enjoy the Red Baron monologue at the top of act 2, though. It kind of felt like he was performing a monologue instead of really taking us there with him to fight the Red Baron. Kudos to him for laying face down in the doghouse for so long at the top of the show with his head unsupported. It did not look terribly comfortable. Jacob Furse really reminded me of Charlie Brown from time to time with his wide eyed bemusement and dejection.

Costuming was dead on, I thought. The colors and design were wonderfully evocative of the original Peanuts drawings. The set really got out of the way of the perfomances while being appropriately whimisical. I thought the musical ensemble was proficient and never overpowered the production which has occasionally been a problem in musicals in this theater previously.

I'm not a terribly hard theater patron to please. All I asked is to be entertained. This show did that to a surprising degree. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

The New Depot Players in Conyers have something going on that You MUST see! OMG my sides were splitting and my face hurt after the hilarious performance by some amazing young adults! Cool moves and great singing topped off a fantastic evening for me and my family. We'll be back before it's over, too! Wow.

The girl who plays Sally is hysterical! They do these stunts between the numbers that just cracked us up! They were chasing rabbits one time and broke out into these lines like Luke, I am your father! Hasta La Vista Bunnies! Hahahahaha!

Snoopy is a nut! Charlie Brown is so talented, Lucy has a super voice and a scream that will curdle your blood, Linus is just adorable and they added Peppermint Patty from the first run. They had this understudy Schroeder last night that brought down the house! We can't wait to see the real Schroeder perform.

I laughed so hard that I cried!!!!!

If you check out the website you can get a discount on admission, too. Wake the kids! Call the neighbors! GO SEE IT! It is better than anything out there (even on you tube) that I've seen yet! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
Review? by MrPurple
After reading the post above and the review, this looks like advertising and not a review. Sigh.

I believe the web designer was also the assistant director for the production.

People, did you have a review to post or not? Granted, this review did sound like an ad. Shame on the poster for doing so. However, you are furthering the problem rather than offering an alternative view.
