You're a Good Man Charlie Brown

You're a Good Man Charlie Brown




A new musical based on the characters created by cartoonist Charles M. Schulz in his comic strip, Peanuts.


Story:

Though considered a "good man" by his friends, Charlie Brown can't seem to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl, nor his friend Lucy, her crush, the piano-playing Schroeder. Meanwhile Snoopy and Linus daydream and the rest of the friends battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings before finally coming to realize what makes them truly happy.
