You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown opens May 25 at Seattle Musical Theatre

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Seattle Musical Theatre is proud to present You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, May 25 – June 17, 2018.

“Money? Who cares about money? This is art you blockhead!”

Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Schroeder, and a beagle named Snoopy navigate the joys and pitfalls of childhood: chaotic baseball games, unrequited valentines, World War One flying beagles, and five cent psychiatry.

When the play was first staged on March 7, 1967, at Theatre 80 in New York City, there was no real script. The six young actors were armed mostly with ten songs and ten years' worth of cartoons by "Peanuts" creator, Charles M. Schulz.

Clark Gesner, who created the music and lyrics for the play, noted that the success of the play could be largely attributed to Schulz's "immensely human view of the world and his special ability to say it for all of us."

The story of the play itself is told through a series of vignettes that mimic the four-panel format used by the original cartoon strip, "Peanuts." This panel format is supplemented with longer passages that are vaguely reminiscent of Shakespearean soliloquies and by musical interludes.

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is thoughtful, funny, and humane, perfect for audiences of all ages.

Directed by Tyrone Brown. Starring the Peanuts Gang: Charlie Brown, Lucy and Linus van Pelt, Schroeder, Sally Brown, Patty, and Snoopy
