Whether you are a fan of The Peanuts comic strip by Charles M Schulz or not, we guarantee that you will enjoy m.a.d. Theatre of Tampa's musical production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown by Clark Gesner. You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a day in the life of Charlie Brown, featuring other lovable characters like Lucy, Schroeder, Linus, Sally, and, of course, Snoopy.?? Clark Gesner, who wrote the music and lyrics for this 1967 musical comedy, said it best, "None of the cast is actually six years old. And they don't really look like Charles Schulz' "Peanuts" cartoon characters. But this doesn't seem to make that much difference once we are into the play, because what they are saying to each other is with the openness of that early childhood time, and the obvious fact is that they are all really quite fond of each other."
Director Tony Gilkinson, along with Assistant Director Caitlin Greene and Music Director Dee Lynch, have put together an amazing cast including Justin Havard, from m.a.d. Theatre's 2012 sold-out run of Avenue Q, starring as Charlie Brown. Joining Justin is another Avenue Q veteran, Melissa Doell, as his younger sister, Sally Brown; Lisa Stanforth as Charlie Brown's nemesis, Lucy Van Pelt; Dakota Ty Hardin as lovable Snoopy; Zachary Sutton as the young and wise Linus; and Miguel Marin as the Beethoven-loving Schroeder.
