Auburn Mountainview’s ‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown’ benefits drama students

The idea lit up like a stage light in Paul Fouhy’s head. What if past high school drama students could pull off a summer musical to benefit young casts of tomorrow? Surely, such an production with seasoned alumni actors and actresses could work?
