Join the entire Peanuts gang for a special musical theatre production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!
Experience Charles Schulz’s beloved comic as it comes to life in this classic musical. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh carefreeness and playfulness is revealed. The new script features two new songs, particularly funny dialogue, and new, catchy orchestrations. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic!
Four performances, March 9-10 at 7:30 p.m. and March 10-11 at 2 p.m. Directed by Greg Shaw, Pittsburg High School Theatre, for Pittsburg Community Theatre.
