Classic Family Fun for All, You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown (Revised), opens at The Theater Barn
Charlie Brown and the entire Peanuts gang explore life’s great questions as they play baseball, struggle with homework, sing songs, swoon over their crushes, and celebrate the joy of friendship. This revised classic (1999) promises fun for the whole family. The Tony Award winning musical is based on the comic strip by Charles M. Schulz with book, music and lyrics by Clark Gesner. The revised version includes additional dialogue by Michael Mayer and additional music and lyrics by Theater Barn alumni Andrew Lippa.
