A Fun Night With The Peanuts Gang
“You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” is based on “Peanuts,” the loveable comic strip by Charles M. Schulz. The musical features the singing shenanigans of Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, Snoopy, Sally and Charlie Brown as they experience the innocent ups and downs of childhood.
“You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” is fun for the whole family. About everyone can relate to Valentine’s Day disasters, tangled up jump ropes, kite-eating trees, a favorite blanket, fighting the Red Baron and seeking help from a 5¢ psychiatry booth.
The play features music and lyrics by Clark Gesner, with additional dialogue written by Michael Mayer and additional songs and orchestration written by Andrew Lippa.
“You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” is presented by arrangement with Tams-Witmark, www.tamswitmark.com.
