Project Description

Jack Bradford, Director

You’re a good man Charlie Brown has been on my to-do list for years. lt is one of my Godspell era musicals full of fantastic songs and great ensemble acting. We have a great team of young actors and leaders on the production team and so I am excited to see this BJT production – our 6oth in 16 years ~ get off are ground.

Thanks to David and Jacob and their assistants. Thanks to the cast as well as the production team including Neil and Stephen and the Mueller tech team. Thanks also to all the helpers and volunteers for making this production happen. This play is ultimately about belonging and overcoming. So after seeing this play, go out and encourage someone in your life.

 

Synopsis

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 Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. 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.
