*testimonial about training and productions from Morgan Faith Williams -
(Helen Keller in TrueNorth's The Miracle Worker; Avon, Ohio)*

*HBTI was the best training program and it helped me improve everything!
Superb! Not only is it fun, but also really serious and helped me a ton. I
love the staff. Acting / Scene Study class with Elana – LOVE. Fred really
helped me with my “act the song.”  J Jenny is the best dance teacher I have
ever had – I want her to teach me private lessons!  Jo Li is a great voice
teacher. She not only helped me on my singing but with tension. The King
and I – SUPERB, FUN!!  The Musical Theatre focus was really helpful and
introduced me to things that I’ve never heard of that improved my dancing,
singing, and acting in many ways.  I would recommend everyone come to HBTI.
You will have a very fun and exotic experience. I am definitely coming back
next year. HBTI IS THE BEST! Morgan Faith Williams*

ABOUT THE PLAY Good Grief!  Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the whole Peanuts
gang come to Hathaway Brown Theatre Institute.  Based on the popular comic

well as brand-new songs and material from the Tony Award-winning Broadway
revival.  Follow a day in the life of these beloved 5-6 year old
characters, as Lucy pursues her infatuation with piano-playing Schroeder,
 Linus loves his blanket, Snoopy lives in his rich imagination, Charlie
Brown seeks to find out what it means to be a “good man,” and they all try
to define what "Happiness is..."  It is sure to delight both children and
"former children" alike!
