Four sold-out shows of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown at Studio Three in South Burlington raised $1200 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. That's pretty good. Especially when you consider the production company was just launched last fall by 14-year-old Tuttle Middle School student Noa Saunders. The outgoing teen loves to act and sing, but it was advice from a couple of mentors that spurred her to action. "They told me I should not wait for opportunities to come to me, but I should make them myself." And so she did: picking a show, obtaining the rights, pinning down sponsors, casting, prop-making, scheduling rehearsals and corralling a group of young actors. Saunders' mom Rosalind has produced shows for Lyric Theatre Company and helped Noa get started. "But she made me do all the work," said the younger Saunders. Why tackle something so ambitious? Saunders wanted to oversee a project where kids took charge. "We can do anything adults can do," she says. No kidding.
