Charles Schulz’s beloved 1967 comic strip comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy, piano prodigy Schroeder, perfectionist Sally, blanket-toting Linus, imaginative Snoopy, lovable Charlie Brown, Woodstock & Co., and the rest of the Peanuts bunch. Come audition to be part of this classic story told in vignettes and song as the “Peanuts” navigate the joys and pitfalls of childhood: chaotic baseball games, unrequited valentines, World War I flying beagles, and five cent psychiatry.

**CASTING ADULTS**

SHOW SYNOPSIS

This comedic murder-mystery follows the long-running soap opera cast of The Bold and The Young in its last days: the hunky hero has self-esteem issues, it’s villainous old man is more interested in soup, and its heroines are slightly psychopathic. The Executive Producer gives the squabbling cast an ultimatum: Complete one episode overnight or the show dies. But when the director ends up murdered, and other cast members start dropping like flies, it seems like his threat might actually come true. Can these misfits discover the murderer before the show is literally killed off?
