Come 30 minutes early, this is a nice place to be. Have a snack at the theater or take a short walk in the neighborhood.

Quotes & Highlights

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown was first staged on Broadway in 1971 and revived in 1999. The musical features such songs as “Happiness,” “My Blanket and Me” and “Little Known Facts.”

Description

Based on the beloved _Peanuts _comic strip by Charles M Schulz and brought to you by the same director/designer team that presented The AristoCats in January, the musical _You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown _presents an average day in the life of Charlie Brown. The day is made up of little moments picked from Valentine’s Day to the classroom to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening.

Charlie Brown is considered a “good man” by his friends, yet he can’t seem to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl. His bossy friend Lucy has no better luck getting the attention of her crush, the piano-playing Schroeder. Meanwhile, Snoopy and Linus daydream while the rest of the friends battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings before finally coming to realize what makes them truly happy.

The production is presented by students, grades 3-5, in Berkeley Playhouse Conservatory’s KidStage program.
