Charles Schulz’s beloved characters come to life in this wonderfully entertaining musical by Clark Gesner. You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown will play Hayes Theatre Co from Tuesday 5 July including special performances for the school holidays.
Everyone’s favourite ‘blockhead’ Charlie Brown is joined by his kid sister Sally, blanket-hugging Linus, know-it-all Lucy, Beethoven devotee Schroeder, and of course his best friend – Snoopy for adventures and life lessons that cover the best way to fly a kite, write a book report, play baseball and combat the Red Baron.
You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown is the first musical to be presented for children and families by Hayes Theatre Co, directed by Shaun Rennie with choreography by Andy Dexterity – the creative team behind the 2014 production of RENT. Joined by renowned Musical Director Michael Tyack (The Detective’s Handbook, Mary Poppins) with the talented young cast of Rohan Browne (Strictly Ballroom, A Chorus Line) as Snoopy, Ben Gerrard (I Am My Own Wife, Molly) as Linus, Sheridan Harbridge (The Detectives Handbook, Songs for the Fallen) as Lucy, Nat Jobe (Crazy For You, The King & I) as Schroeder, Laura Murphy (GREASE The Musical, Magical Tales) as Sally and Mike Whalley (Richard III, An Officer and a Gentleman) as Charlie Brown.
This production will commence matinee performances during the July school holidays from 5 July, with an additional two weeks of evening performances available for the big kids in all of us from 18 July.
