Spend an evening with Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally, and, of course, Snoopy. These lovable Peanuts characterscome to life in this delightful, Tony award-winning Broadway musical revival—with book, music, and lyrics by Clark Gesner.
“The Peanuts comic strip is full of discovery, imagination, optimism, and hope,” said director Jennifer Matthews. “Who better to champion hope in today’s uncertain world than the optimist Charlie Brown?” This musical is full of witty and charming cartoon-like moments. Remember Schroeder and Lucy at the piano, Charlie Brown and his nefariously evil kite, and Linus with his blanket? It also features memorable songs such as “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “My New Philosophy,” and “Happiness.” “This story takes us on a journey and shows us that despite his failure and misgivings, Charlie Brown always rises above his calamity.” said Matthews, who also serves as the director of the Black Box Theatre. “He is not just a boy in a yellow shirt, Charlie Brown represents the enduring human spirit in us all.” 7:30 p.m., Thur., May 16 7:30 p.m., Fri., May 17 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Sat., May 18 2 p.m., Sun., May 19
