Our first Young Artists Summer Theatre Production! We run for five shows at Aspinwall Riverfront Park, August 16-19 at 8:00 p.m., and August 20 at 2:00 p.m. Charles Schulz's beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner's classic musical, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. 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 Valentines 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 insouciance 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.
