Washington, CT - In March, the Dining Hall was transformed into a sophisticated atmosphere ideal for Glenholme’s first dinner theatre fundraiser performances for the students of the Arts Department. Their musical production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” captivated their audience from the start of scene one until the final roaring round of applause. Performers embraced their characters; delivered their lines zealously; and mingled amongst the tables filled with family, friends and faculty with profound passion.

The Glenholme dinner theatre entertainment format combined an upscale restaurant style meal with a staged musical performance directly engaging the audience. This theatrical venue is a new for the performing arts students at Glenholme and an effort they enthusiastically embraced and enjoyed as evidenced by their sheer interest in the event. Dinner theatre compliments the existing arts program in enhancing the students’ social-emotional development, interpersonal communication and group skills. The success of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” not only boosted the Center for the Arts Campaign with an additional $7,000, it also contributed considerably to the self-esteem of each performer.
