Snoopy!!! the Musical – Meet Linus!
Written by Sidney Valdez
Last week we announced our upcoming outdoor performances for Snoopy!!! The Musical. Now we are proud to introduce the actors bringing the show to life!
This week we were able to sit down with Joseph Kyler who will be playing Linus Van Pelt this August 21st, 22nd, 28th, and 29th. Joseph Kyler is no stranger to Beale Street Theater shows! You may have seen him take on the character Cogsworth in our production of Beauty and The Beast Jr, or Toronto in The Legend of the Lone Texas Walker Ranger. Joseph continues to audition and come out for shows because acting has always been a great passion of his. He decided the more performing he could do the better!
Joey found himself especially connected to his character, Linus, in that they both are philosophical powerhouses. He went on to say, “Linus also cracks the best jokes which I choose to believe is also very much like me!” When asked about his co-stars and favorite memories to date he stated “It’s all been happening so fast! It’s a blur of smiles, giggles, and incredible memories with even more incredible people.” He is most excited to showcase his newfound master dance moves which he credits his choreographer, Mollie Taylor, for her skill in teaching. He looks forward to the audience’s reactions to both his solo “The Vigil” and Snoopy’s big number “The Big Bow Wow!”
Snoopy!!! The Musical will captivate families, the young, the dreamers, and all those above. As Joey says, you don’t want to miss this childlike-dream feature!
Snoopy!!! The Musical performance dates are set for August 21st, 22nd, 28th, and 29th at The Metcalf Park downtown. Tickets are available online and seating is limited.
