Mariko Iwasa, an actress that has spent her past four years as a clown in the renowned Ringling Brothers Circus, is highly hilarious in the mostly silent role of Snoopy. She dazzles the audience with her charm, energy, and spunky personality in the beloved role. Iwasa also shows off some seriously show-stopping tap moves perfectly choreographed by Stephfond Brunson. The vaudevillian style actress, of course, steals the spotlight in whatever scene she is in. She even has the opportunity to show off some of her mime skills.
Talented mime Mariko Iwasa expands on Snoopy’s role with classic silent comedy sometimes directly lifted from the source, and sometimes not connected at all to Schultz’s resourceful and cheeky beagle.
