Cherokee County’s high schools are offering a full weekend of spring student musical productions.

Three of Cherokee County School District’s high school theater programs are putting on their spring musicals this weekend: Woodstock High School, Cherokee High School and River Ridge High School.


Woodstock High School Drama kicks off the weekend Thursday with “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown!” which runs through Saturday.

The musical promises nostalgic fun with characters from “Peanuts”: Charlie Brown and friends play baseball, struggle with homework, swoon over crushes and more, exploring life’s great questions.

Performances are 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the Woodstock High School Auditorium, 2010 Towne Lake Hills Drive, Woodstock. Tickets are $8 for students and $10 for adults. Masks and social distancing are expected and students will be asked to present ID.

Cherokee High School’s “Mamma Mia” will premiere Friday. After two years in the making, the director and cast are performing the show for two weekends. The show will be in-person only with limited seating.

In “Mamma Mia”, which is based on ABBA songs and inspired the movie with the same name, Sophie dreams of her father giving her away at her wedding. But since she doesn’t know who he is and her mother refuses to talk about it, she does some digging and discovers three possible fathers. Thinking she’ll know her father when she sees him, she invites all three.

Showtimes are 7 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 pm. Sunday, and 7 p.m. April 29 and 30, and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. May 1 at the Cherokee High School Auditorium, 930 Marietta Highway in Canton. Tickets are $10.50. To purchase, visit https://www.simpletix.com/e/mamma-mia-tickets-65866.


River Ridge High School’s theater program presents two performances a night this weekend of “Radium Girls.”

“Radium Girls” follows three girls’ journey to justice after they become ill from radium exposure at the watch factory where they work. Two different casts of 15 students will perform the show each night, with a crew of five students who work on both shows.

Performances are 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Monday. Tickets are $5. Seating is limited. To purchase advance tickets, visit https://gofan.co/app/school/GA25508.
