All roles listed are open to actors of all ethnicities and gender identities.
CHARLIE BROWN: Baritone. He is gentle, loving, insecure. A lovable loser with endless determination and hope, but who often fails due to his insecurities, interference from others, and a permanent case of bad luck.
SNOOPY: Tenor. He is Charlie Brown’s pet beagle. Snoopy is owned and cared for by Charlie Brown, although at times it is not clear who is in charge. He is loyal, dramatic, genuinely happy, and blessed with a rich fantasy life. He is more human-like than dog.
LUCY VAN PELT: Mezzo-Soprano. She is bossy, selfish, and a know-it-all. She is not deterred by the fact that her information is often inaccurate. She bullies and belittles others, especially Charlie Brown and Linus. She does have a soft side, which is seen through her love for Schroeder.
LINUS VAN PELT: Baritone. He is Lucy’s little brother. Linus always means well and tries to smooth over any storms that arise in the group. He is kind-hearted, caring, and incredibly smart. In contrast to his intellectual maturity is his reliance on his security blanket.
SALLY BROWN: Soprano. Charlie Brown’s younger sister. She is friendly and sweet but can also be lazy and obsessive. Sally has a “take it easy” approach to life, preferring to slide by while doing as little work as possible. She is hopelessly in love with Linus.
SCHROEDER: Tenor. He has a precocious skill at playing the piano and an incredible love of classical music and Ludwig van Beethoven. Lucy is infatuated with Schroeder, but he refuses her because Beethoven was a lifelong bachelor, and he feels he must emulate every aspect of his idol’s life. He is a close friend of Charlie Brown and is often the first one to come to his defense. Note: Actor does not need to play the piano.
