The Castle Craig Players to Present YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN, 7/25-8/3

This summer, everyone's favorite blockhead returns to Meriden!

GOOD GRIEF! The Peanuts characters come to life on stage, as the Castle Craig Players revive their acclaimed production of the Tony Award-winning hit YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN. Based on the classic comic strips PEANUTS by Charles M. Schultz, this heart-warming musical is the perfect summer treat for the entire family! The show runs for two weekends only - July 25-August 3 - at the Almira F. Stephan Memorial Playhouse in Meriden!

"How can anything go wrong on a day like this?" asks Charlie Brown as the curtain goes up. YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN answers this question and many more, as Lucy, Linus, Sally, Schroeder and Snoopy join the fun on "A day in the life of Charlie Brown." Full of music, humor, and insight, the stage musical tackles childhood's memorable moments that made the famous Peanuts gang a part of all our lives. Will this be the day that Charlie Brown actually flies his kite? Can Linus give up his blanket? Will Schroeder give in to Lucy's romantic advances? Will Snoopy ever defeat the Red Baron a top his doghouse? With book, music, and lyrics by Clark M. Gesner, Castle Craig's production features new music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, and additional dialogue by Michael Mayer. The result is a musical family entertainment that could only have sprung from the mind of the one-and-only Charles M. Schulz.

"This is a family show, not necessarily a children's show," says director Melanie Del Sole. "The Peanuts characters are kids, of course, and kids love them. But they deal with philosophy, psychology, sibling-rivalry, and even blanket-separation-anxiety! Trust me, there's plenty for adults to enjoy, too - there's a bit of these characters in every one of us!"

The cast features Ian Galligan (Charlie Brown), Simone McMahon (Lucy), Art Canova (Linus), Jenny Del Sole (Sally), Jorge Melendez (Schroeder) and Wesley Tack (Snoopy). The show features music direction by Andrew Gadwah.

YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN will be presented for six performances only - July 25-August 3 (Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2:00pm) at The Almira F. Stephan Memorial Playhouse, 59 West Main Street, Meriden, CT. Tickets are $20, and seating is extremely limited. Tickets may be purchased online at www.CastleCraig.org or over the phone by calling toll-free 1-800-838-3006.
