CHESTER SPRINGS, PA — SALT Performing Arts presents the musical You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown (Revised), a fresh approach to the all-time 1967 classic, based on the beloved comic strip by Charles Schultz. The Peanuts gang comes to life August 2 – 18th with three talented casts of SALT all-stars: Kids, Teens, and Adults – all performing the same delightful version of the show! Running time is only 90 minutes, including an intermission (great for families!).
Join Charlie Brown and his pals in this family-friendly musical that is full of heart. All of your favorite Peanuts characters are here: headstrong Lucy is still hopelessly in love with the piano virtuoso Schroeder who won’t give her the time of day, Linus and his blanket still endlessly taunted by the precocious perfectionist Sally, Snoopy who’s ever attached to his beloved dog house and singing to his supper, and, of course, the iconic blockhead himself, Charlie Brown, leading the way through a year in the life of the Peanuts gang. This 1999 revised version includes additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer to compliment the songs from the original 1967 musical with music and lyrics by Clark Gesner.
“This show is so sweet, joyful, and playful with funny dialogue and catchy orchestrations, that we decided it would be a great opportunity to showcase SALT talent from different age groups: Kids, Teens, and Adults. So we are giving each cast a weekend to perform the show,” says Lauren McComas, SALT President and Artistic Director. “Although it’s the same script for all three casts, each “gang” displays a slightly different take of this revue of heartwarming vignettes and songs. In fact, we have 2 siblings and even a father/daughter team that are actually playing the same character in different shows!”
