JJMS presents our spring musical - You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown

Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh insouciance and playfulness is revealed. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic that is appropriate for all ages and is perfect for a family outing.

Tickets are on sale at the door and in the JJMS cafeteria the weeks of March 14th and 28th for $10.00.

Performance dates: Thursday, March 31st – 7:00 p.m.
Friday, April 1st – 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 2nd – 1:00 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.
