Inept, but ever-hopeful, Charlie Brown searches for what it means to be a good person, finding unexpected answers from his friends Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally and Snoopy. Visit with the gang as they set out to discover how happiness in life is made up of all the little moments we often take for granted. This bright and sunny show is packed with upbeat songs, funny comics and the creative genius of Charles M. Schultz, with a book by Clark Gesner and Michael Mayer, and music and lyrics by Clark Gesner and Andrew Lippa.

The show will be directed by Shileah Corey and choreographed by Coulson Bingham.

Ages 12-20

Session dates: January 13 – March 4, 2018

Tuition $325.00

 

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
CHARLIE BROWN (Male, Bari-tenor— Bb2 to F4) – A lovable loser, a child possessed of eternal determination, hope and optimism, but who is ultimately dominated by his insecurities and a permanent case of bad luck. He is often taken advantage of by his peers.

LINUS VAN PELT (Male, Baritone—Bb2 to E4) - He is Lucy's little brother. Linus always acts as the peacemaker and tries to smooth over any storms that arise amongst the gang. He is even-tempered, philosophical, and fanatical about his blanket, and he is Charlie Brown’s best friend.

SCHROEDER (Male, Tenor—Bb2 to Ab4) - He has the precocious skill of playing the piano, as well as a love of classical music and the composer Ludwig van Beethoven. Lucy is infatuated with Schroeder but since Beethoven is a lifelong bachelor, Schroeder feels that he must emulate every aspect of his idol's life.

SALLY BROWN (Female, Soprano—Bb3 to Ab5) – Charlie Brown’s younger sister. 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.

LUCY VAN PELT (Female, Mezzo—G3 to F#5) - Bossy, crabby, overbearing, brutally honest, says what she thinks without thought to social boundaries. She is especially mean to Charlie Brown and her “stupid” little brother Linus. Lucy is in love with Schroeder who has NO interest in her whatsoever. Lucy is loud, confident and has a very strong personality.

SNOOPY (Any gender, Bari-tenor (or Mezzo Soprano)—C3 to A4 or C4 to A5) - Charlie Brown's imaginative, whimsical, and agile pet beagle, and is owned and cared for by Charlie Brown, although at times it is not clear who is in charge.

ENSEMBLE (Any/all voice types) – An Ensemble of characters from the comic strip (Woodstock, PigPen, Marcy, etc.) to sing and dance in the ensemble numbers.
