Happiness is finding a pencil, sharing a secret…or reliving the wonders of our childhood with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang. Professional Theatre for Families (PTF), an arm of North Coast Repertory Theatre, is presenting “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” the 1999 award-winning musical revival based on the beloved comic strip by Charles Schultz.
An all-adult professional cast will bring the trials and tribulations of the hapless boy, his pals and his quirky, colorful dog to the theatre’s mainstage Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. from April 19 through May 4. Tickets are $20 for adults, $16 for children 17 and under.
“In this electronic world, where most kids rely on TV and movies for their storytelling experiences, live theatre stirs the imagination and creates unmatched excitement. “‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown’ is ideal for the entire family,” says Siobhan Sullivan Crews, director of Theatre School and Educational Outreach.
Desha Crownover directs a cast that includes Beverly Baker as Lucy; Sean Boyd as Linus; Benjamin Cole as Charlie Brown; Leif Corbeil as Schroeder; Tatiana Mac as Sally, and E.Y. Washington as Snoopy. The music and lyrics for “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown were written by Clark Gesner with a book by John Gordon.
